Rent a private boat with captain
One of the services that Volendam Marken Express provides, is the boat rental Volendam. This is the perfect way to surprise your partner, friends or family members with a nice day out in and around Volendam.
One of our captains will pick you up at the historical harbor and sail into the Gouwzee. This gives you the perfect view on the historical and characteristic towns: Volendam, Monnickendam and Marken. Admire the beautiful nature of this location while enjoying a drink and our freshly prepared snacks.
The boat has a maximum capacity of 12 persons. It is possible to take a dive in the water, so bring your swimming clothes and towel and don’t forget your sunscreen! Keep in mind that the temperature on the water is always lower than on land, so don’t forget to bring a jacket.
