Have a boat day!

Something that is always fun to do is to rent a boat! You probably know that you can rent a boat here in Breda and navigate through the canals, but what is also very fun is to rent a boat in nature. Rent a boat in the Biesbosch on a sunny day, bring a coolbox with you with refreshing drinks inside, bring some tasty snacks and bring your swimwear to take a dive when it gets too hot. You’ll love this day on the water!

At Voltex Sloepverhuur you rent a boat from 13:30 – 18:00 for €165 for eight people. This might sound like quite a lot, but it will be around €20 pp. Which makes it a more suited gift to give as a group!
