Excursions with an added value ...
Enjoy Nieuwpoort from the water
Departure & arrival: Storms Harbour
at “De Poolreiziger”, located in the yacht club
R. Orlentpromenade 15 (tram stop: Cardijnlaan)
We use the “Topcraft Grande 484”, a highly comfortable motorboat, in the biggest marina of Northern Europe towards Newport city. We sail via the fish market and along the fishing boats situated at the quays, going under the bridge and arriving at the lock complex the ‘Ganzenpoot’ (Goose leg). At this point we reach the historic locks which allowed the Yser inundations in 1914, with the story of our famous locks guards Geeraert and Cogge. Here, the Albert I monument makes an astonishing impression seen from the water. Next, we turn around to sail along the sand quays and through a variety of pontoons, giving us the opportunity to get to know all types of boats. Eventually, drifting along the right shore, we arrive at the nature reserve ‘De IJzermonding’, where, with luck, we can spot some seals!
