Boat rental or supping

Wil je liever zelf de route bepalen? Huur dan een bootje bij een van de bootverhuurorganisaties. Voor de meeste bootjes heb je geen vaarbewijs nodig. Wel is het handig om de waterrecreatiefolder mee te nemen. Deze kun je opvragen bij de bootverhuurder, halen bij het havenkantoor van de Havendienst Haarlem (ter hoogte van de Prinsenbrug), VVV Haarlem of downloaden via de website. Haarlem staat bekend om haar vele en mooie grachten. Door deze te bevaren, ontdek je de historische binnenstad vanaf het water! Op diverse plekken rond het Spaarne kun je ook een supboard huren om te suppen (stand up paddling). Zo kun je in je eigen tempo peddelen over het Spaarne en de grachten van de historische binnenstad. Nog nooit op een supboard gestaan? Geen zorgen! Het is mogelijk om lessen te nemen.
