Discover the historic center of Ghent in a cabrio boat or luxury sloop (not possible in a standard boat). Due the heavy boat traffic in the centre of Ghent experience is recommended. Therefore everybody has to navigate first on the Leie and only then in the center of Ghent.
pets are not allowed on the boats.
It is forbidden to swim in the Leie river nor in the Centre of Ghent.
Because of the new mobility we recommend that if you come from the ring road (Charles De Kerckhovelaan, Godshuizenlaan) to park near the bijlokehof or bijloke high school. Best you can park in one of the following streets Louis Pasteur, Josef Kluyskensstraat of hospitaalstraat. It can also be parked in Coupure Rechts but than you must follow the loop.
During the “Gentse feesten” (19/07/2019-28/07/2019) it is forbidden for all boat rental companies to navigate in the center of Gent. The Leie remains navigable.
