You probably have seen it: Getting a discount through expatsHaarlem on a boat rental at Greenjoy. As we like to know what we are offering you, our dear reader, we decided to take a little test drive: Two parents, three children (a 2-year old, one of 3 and one who just turned 5 last week) and a boat.
The Greenjoy boats don’t go very fast; if you want to soar the canals, scare away the little sail boats on the water or impress sunbathing babes with your boat handling skills, this is not for you. If you just want to have a good time being on the water, being able to conversate without having to scream over the sound of a roaring engine, Greenjoy is highly recommended: apart from a tiny little motor buzz we heard nothing than water and wind and birds and …. well, things you might hear while being in the middle of a massive amount of water. Keyword: relaxation.
As all good things come to an end, after two hours our time was up and we had to go back to the marine. Just a little tip: when you come out of the little stream onto the big lake, make a picture (a mental one, or a real one, or a Google Maps pin, or whatever works for you) of where you came from. It turned out that for us, landlubbers as we are, finding our way back was a big challenge.
