Renting Boats at the Giessen

Enjoy the beauty of the Giessen on a Chinese whisper boat (the Sampan)!

Sailing with the Sampan on the river ”the Giessen” is an unique experience.
The Giessen is one of the most beautiful small rivers in the Netherlands. The Giessen has not been discovered by many people, which makes it very unique.Therefore, it is something you have to experience, being in the Netherlands. It is located in the “green heart” of the Netherlands, near the Biesbosch.

Come and enjoy yourselves in a Sampan on the river the Giessen. Sailing with the whisper boat is “back to basic”.  The boat has an electric motor, so you won’t hear anything! Bring yourself some food and drinks or let us make a picnic basket full of delicious things for you. This makes the perfect combination to relax and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of ”the Giessen”.

The sampans are suitable for rides with family and friends, or as a company outing.

Do you want to experience something very special? You can spend the night on a Sampan. We can guarantee you will not forget such an unique and romantic experience!
