A wonderful boat trip on the Franlis III

Embark on a wonderful boat trip with the Franlis III from the port of Ostend! After casting off, you will get to see the newly constructed moles, the radar tower and the “Rock Strangers” work of art, which are all characteristic for the City of Ostend.  The vessel will take you into the high seas right up to the Buitenstroombank buoy, making a bend towards the coast in order to return to the harbour via the coastline – sailing very near to the beach.

Take a seat on one of the outer decks and take in the healthy sea air as much as possible. Or why not settle at the ship’s bar and enjoy a drink. You will pass large ferries, sailing yachts and coastal fishermen scaring off circling seagulls. Along the way, you will probably also come across smaller work vessels. Ideal for making nice holiday snapshots! By just asking, the captain will be more than happy to first take you around the port during a short tour of the harbour.
