Boat trips between Vilvoorde and Antwerp

A boat trip between Vilvoorde and Antwerp is a special experience. We sail on one of the economically most important (and oldest) canals of our country and on the mighty Scheldt, with both urban, industrial and beautiful natural landscapes on our sailing route. Through impressive locks we bridge differences in height and we make the connection with the tide-bound Sea Scheldt.

These sailing routes are organized with either departure by boat in Antwerp - Steenplein or departure in Brussels - Heembeekkaai (near Van Praet).

A. Sailing from Vilvoorde to Antwerp, from 11:00 am → 4:00 pm
  (arrival Antwerp)

B. Sailing from Vilvoorde to Antwerp, from 1:00 pm → 6:00 pm
  (arrival Antwerp)

C. Sailing from Antwerp to Vilvoorde, from 10:30 am → 3:00 pm
  (arrival Vilvoorde)

D. Sailing from Antwerp to Vilvoorde, from 12:30 pm → 5:00 pm
