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.
