One-parent-child Vacation

Sunday 1 May to Friday 6 May 2022

An active midweek on the Wadden Sea for parents who only want to spend a holiday with their son or daughter, but who also want the fun of other parents and children. Go sailing together on our two-master and learn the most beautiful sailor knots. Explore the Wadden from a sandbank and discover the nature and culture of our islands.


  • Sunday from approx. 18.00 on board in Harlingen, reception and explanation about the goings on and sailing on board and introducing with the other parents and children.
  • Monday introduction to sailing the Red Swan. Then we sail to the first destination where both parents and children help. 
  • The other days we make a sail plan based on wind and tide. We try to visit two Wadden Islands, dry te fall on a sandbank, walk on the mudflats and verstay.
  • Friday we sail back to Harlingen. All hands on deck!
There is an escort (no nanny!) on board organizing the activities. We sail about four to five hours a day, so there is plenty of time to look around the island and search the sandbar for starfish and crabs.


Food, coffee, tea and lemonade are provided by the ship’s cook. Other drinks are available on board for a fee. Unfortunately it is not allowed to bring your own drinks.

Stay on board in a 2 or 4 person cabin with bunk beds. All beds are freshly made with fitted sheets, pillows and duvets. The towels are also ready.


5 nights on board, full board

Adults €625

Children 6 years and older €430
