Board the Blauwe Donder in Muiden - just 15 minutes from Amsterdam - after breakfast. Our skipper and chef will welcome you with good coffee and traditional Dutch sweets. From there you sail to Volendam, a beautiful Dutch fishing village. You’re welcome to give our skipper a hand, or just kick back and relax. You’ll enjoy an a la carte lunch in Volendam, and of course there’s time to explore. After lunch you’ll sail back to Muiden, ending a lovely day with snacks and drinks.
Maximum number of guests: 10
Our cruises are on the Wadden Sea, a UNESCO world heritage site valued for its undisturbed natural environment, rich bird life and dramatic seascapes. The more time you have to spare (our minimum cruise is two days) the bigger the adventure. You decide the itinerary, with the help of our skipper. You’ll board in Harlingen, about 75 minutes drive north of Amsterdam. Then, depending on the length of the cruise, we sail to Vlieland, Terschelling or Ameland islands, where you can explore on foot or bicycle. At low tides we can beach the boat on a sand bank to stretch your legs and with a bit of luck observe seals. Our chef and skipper are always at your service and devoted to providing you with an unforgettable experience.
Maximum number of guests: 6 – 8 (8 if some of the guests are kids).
The Blauwe Donder is a traditional Dutch flat-bottom sailing boat, originally designed for coastal fishing. So she’s immensely practical, as well as beautiful. Built in 2004 she is 16.5 meters long and 5 wide. Her large deck is laid out to accommodate a big table, seating 10 people for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Below decks there are three cabins plus a saloon with an open kitchen and comfortable kitchen table. The master cabin accommodates two adults, and the other cabins either 2 adults or 3 young people. Of course there is a toilet and shower. We also have sailing jackets should the weather be less than perfect.
It’s completely a la carte. We’ll provide you with some meal suggestions, but you are in charge. So if you have specific wishes or dietary needs, just tell us. As standard on board we offer two kinds of white wine, two kinds of red wine, beer, still and sparking water, orange juice, milk, plus regular and diet cola. We also always carry fresh fruit, cheeses, and snacks such as crisps and cookies.
