You come to Brussels or Vilvoorde on your own initiative (by train).
The guide will meet the participants at 10:30 am at Brussels Central (Europe square exit) for a guided walk through the historic city and the former harbor district (Sint-Kathelijne) until the boarding point. The Waterbus then takes you to the ship Verdi or Mozart at the Heembeekkaai, where the intercity boat trip to Antwerp starts.
You can also come directly to the boarding point of the Waterbus at 12:00 (at the latest) on your own initiative.

A boat trip between Brussels / Vilvoorde and Antwerp is a special experience. We sail on the Brussels-Scheldt Sea Canal, one of the economically most important and oldest canals in our country, and on the mighty tide-bound Sea Scheldt. We discover interesting new architecture as well as industrial sites and beautiful nature on our sailing route. We experience passages in the lock of Zemst and the sea lock of Wintam-Bornem and disembark in the center of Antwerp.

Within the framework of the Corona measures, we limit the capacity of the ship to less than half, in order to respect 'social distancing'. On board we also provide hand sanitizer and information posters with clear safety instructions. Each ship has its own atmosphere, setting and arrangement and is equipped with bar, audio and multimedia devices. Sailing can be done from different embarkation points, with or without catering.
