    What does this job entail?

    We sail on the most beautiful nature reserve in the Netherlands, namely the Wadden Sea. We do this together with our guests. This varies from school classes to friends/acquaintances or from associations to companies. The goal is to provide guests with a great experience!

    A little side note,

    Unfortunately the regulations to become deckhand has changed in The Netherlands. This means if you want to become a deckhand after 1 April 2023 you need to follow an external training. We are open to pay for this training but there are some conditions. The most important one is that you’re open to stay onboard for 4 months.
