It is also possible to rent a boat; we will make sure that it is ready for you at the jetty on the day you want to use it. From the Uitgeester lake, you can visit many authentic North Holland towns and villages in the area by boat. In addition to sailing, supping or canoeing is also a fun, active way to explore the Uitgeester lake. We offer canoes through the nearby canoe rental. Please contact us for more information.
