Through a historical sluice the ‘Yellow Belly’ sails to the rural eastern part of Oudewater. Sailing on the Grote Gracht, we then visit the town hall and the artwork ‘Naiads’ to return through the beautiful river Lange Linschoten to the center of Oudewater.

The Lock Cruise (Schutvaert) departs from the dock in front of the Tourist Information Point, where you can buy your tickets.
The crossing time is about 1 hour. There will be sailed with a skipper/guide on board.
