You can rent a canoe between 10 am and 6 pm from Wednesday to Sunday (in July and August all week). It is always advisable to make a reservation to be sure that a canoe is reserved for you.
There are one- and two person kayaks. You paddle with your knees bent and your feet rest against footrests on the sides. You cannot store a lot of luggage because a lot of space is occupied by air chambers. Given the size of the seat in a kayak, it is not suitable for obese people (you might get a bit stuck and therefore it is not comfortable). Some people are afraid that they won’t be able to get out when the kayak flips over: there is no reason for to be worried, you will always fall out. Given the shallow canals and lakes in the area, one can stand in the water almost anywhere, pull the canoe to the side and turn it upside down, so that the water runs out immediately, this way the kayak cannot break. The steers mate is usually in the back. A two-person kayak is very suitable for a parent with a child (starting at 9-10 years)
3- person Canadian Canoe:
The paddle has 1 rowing leaf and you sit on an open bench at knee height. This canoe does offer some space to take things with you. We have small watertight barrels available for valuables. The person sitting in the back is the steering mate, because he or she has the most influence on the drift . A “Canadian” has more wind sensitivity than a kayak. By using more paddles on the lee side, drifting can be prevented. A Canadian canoe is a little less stable than a kayak. In a 3-person Canadian is suitable for 3 adults, but this is also very suitable for 2 adults and 2 small children. The children can sit next to each other on the bench in the middle. However, the canoe can also be sailed by 2 people.
