Zeeland… …a cruising area with so much variety and so many possibilities. Here is a suggested cruise along the more famous places in the province.
After leaving Willemstad, we set course for Bruinisse, still a very active fishing port, where much of the Dutch mussel harvest comes from. Then we not only visit Zierikzee, but also sail up the Veerse Meer to see picturesque Veere. The next day we continue with a cruise around the lake itself, slowly heading towards Goes. One of the real Zeeland towns with lots of activity and cosiness. More off the beaten track on the quay or in the middle of the old town. After a day of seeing so much, it’s nice to enjoy the vastness of the Oosterschelde again. Taste the salt and let the wind blow through your hair. We end the day in another real fishing port, Yerseke. People really still work here, you can see it in everything. Fresh oysters, how the breeding is done and much more you can admire directly with your own eyes. And of course you can enjoy all the wonderful food in one of the many restaurants. Little by little, we have to shift course back home. But before we sail the last part, we first go back to fresh water.
Via the Scheldt-Rhine connection we reach the cosy Bergen op Zoom in Brabant. From here it’s a nice day trip back home via the Volkerak until we see the lights of Willemstad appearing again in the distance.
