Ready to Join?

A private motor boat cruise trip on the Elbe river is organized especially for you. It was a blast last time we did this.
Hurry up and sign in, We will be five people on a comfortable, fast, open motor boat of type "Necko 475". This is a full day cruise and all passengers can optionally steer the boat for some time in open waters. The skipper takes care of navigation and the other maneuvres near the harbour. We expect a sunny day but would meet at any weather and make the best.

We are going to start from Protected content Thus the meeting time is Protected content Return is at 18:30 at the jetty. It ends with filling gas and sharing the bill. The cost of 60€ is approximate and should cover boat rent and fuel. Please sign up only if you are reliable and agree to share the costs and can transfer the fee beforehand (personal notice by IN message). The cost is calculated based on 5 people and no extensive speeding. We will exchange mobile phone numbers and stay in touch around our trip.

We are going to pass through the locks of Moorfleet which separates Dove-Elbe from main Elbe river.
Then we are going around the huge harbour island of Wilhelmsburg, where we can see the real cargo vessels and cranes from close by. This way we will go all along Süderelbe and around Bunthäuser Spitze.
The beautiful Hafencity quarter is also on our itinerary, Landungsbrücken, Altona, and at least one stop for drinks, food, ice-cream and washroom. Maybe there's even time for a swim, weather permitting.

Bring a bag with sunscreen, sun glasses, swimwear, a towel, a windproof and waterproof jacket and pullover, maybe an umbrella (just in case), enough to drink and some snacks. Floatation vests are provided. But you must be capable to swim. Have a good blatter, too, as we cannot stop too often for a pee.

Looking forward to a wonderful and exciting day.
