The cooperation with Stayokay is a win-win situation, says Jacob van Poppel, who owns DRIJF Dordrecht together with Pim Baan. "Stayokay is a real hotspot in the Biesbosch. For us, it is great to be able to hire SUPs, kayaks and canoes from this dream location. It's a great starting point for a trip on the water and, of course, also the most beautiful and fun way to discover the vast nature reserve in peace and quiet. The Stayokay guests are happy with it, but other sports enthusiasts are also more than welcome."
It is a wonderful starting point for a trip on the water and, of course, also the most beautiful and pleasant way to discover the vast nature reserve in peace and quiet.
"We have mapped out routes, but you can of course also go out on your own. We have a wide range: one- and two-person kayaks, three-person Canadian canoes and SUPs. Enough for company outings or other larger groups. It is a nice active addition to the boat trips and packages on the water that we already organise. It can be a part of a complete day, but we have noticed that people also like to rent for a longer time, for example to stop at one of the beautiful islands for a picnic or to relax."
"In the future, we would like to expand by organising tours and instructions, for example when groups from schools come. We started for the first time on the Easter weekend. Despite the chilly weather, we already had quite a few rentals. It will be even more fun when it gets warmer. We're really looking forward to it." The SUPs, canoes and kayaks, as well as the boat trips, are very easy to book online. The website lists the possibilities, rates and availability.
