Stand at the helm of a minerva boat or luxury sloop.
Go boating on the touristic Leie with your friends, colleagues or relatives for just a couple of hours or maybe all day long. You’ll peacefully pass beautiful gardens as well as the painter’s villages St.-Martens-Latem and Deurle. Every day a few cabrio boats, family boats and luxury sloops can explore the historic center of Ghent. Due to heavy boat traffic experience is recom-mended. Therefore everybody has to navigate first on the Leie and only then in the center of Ghent.
Our boats are designed to be easily operable and comfortable:
• Standard boats/cabrio boats up to 4 passengers,
• Luxury sloops up to 5, 6, 10, 12 passengers
• Very simple to operate
• No boating license or experience required (min. age 18)
• No floodgates or swing bridges on the route
• Pets are not allowed on the boats
• Qualified staff on site to provide you with all necessary information, advice and directions.
You can find us at the Minerva port, at the corner of Coupure and Lindenlei.
