An overnight stay on the pavilion barge “Het Wakend Oog” is a unique experience in all seasons. A night offshore, so at anchor, on the Slotermeer. No traffic, no media, just the rustling of the wind, the sloshing of the water and the cozy warmth of the wood stove!
After your arrival and embarkation at “Het Wakend Oog”, the skipper will take you for a trip on the Slotermeer. Depending on the weather, it sails on the engine or hoists the sails. Your help is most welcome. In the meantime, the skipper will gladly tell you all about the history and ins and outs of “Het Wakend Oog”.
At the end of the trip, the skipper will take you, if you wish, to the place where you will drop anchor. After the skipper has told you everything you need to know about the boat and after he is sure that the ship is safely anchored, he will leave the ship with the dinghy. You then have the ship to yourself for the night. In the morning, at a time agreed with you, the skipper will come back on board with a fresh breakfast to take you back to the port. If you spend the night in the harbor, the skipper will take you back to Sloten after the sailing trip. The skipper will bring the fresh breakfast in the morning.
The boat has a complete galley (kitchen). It is therefore possible to cook (extensively) on board if you wish. There is also a complete set of linen on board, you only need to bring your personal items. If you are staying longer than one night, you might prefer to spend the second night in Woudsend…. Much is possible in consultation!
The tjalk is suitable for an overnight stay for 2 to 6 people.
