The best way to discover the Port of Antwerp and its huge docks is from the water.
Departure possible in Temse (day trip) or Antwerp (as afternoon trip).
After boarding in Temse we cruise along the idyllic town of Rupelmonde, pass natural reserves and flood areas and enjoy some panoramic views over the river Scheldt. From the deck of the ship we also discover the renewed quays of Antwerp. We make a short stop in Antwerp, so passengers starting in Antwerp can board.
In the afternoon we set course to the Port area. We sail along the impressive MAS building and the new Port House in the shape of a diamond and a ship.
Once past "Sint Anneke" beach, the panoramic views give way to the industrial facilities of the petro-chemical plants. We approach the power plant of Doel with its cooling towers and the container port with the Deurganckdock: the heart of the seaport of Antwerp.
With its unique location, the port of Antwerp offers a perfect answer to the ever-increasing shipping traffic. We are in the midst of an international port in full activity, where impressive sea vessels come and go on a daily basis. Between the giant container ships, you will feel like an ant next to an elephant.
The ship turns near Lillo, a peaceful village that has kept its authenticity in the middel of the hustle and bustle of the world harbor. We cruise back to Antwerp and to Temse.
