Trawler Revenant is a sea going vessel exploring the waters in middle and Northern Europe with leisure and educational purposes
Educational guiding trips on Schelde river: Trawler Revenant is a vessel prepared to explore. After the pandemic we are taking passengers for short expeditions on the Schelde river to explore fauna and explane the history of the river starting from the end of the ice age 11.000 years ago. These trips are taking 3h and starting and ending in Breskens harbour. From frorce 5, a seastate with a lot of wind we stay in harbour. We always see wildlife like seals. Dolpins when lucky. Language on board is determined before start: guidings in dutch, english, french depending passengers. Every trip includes a safety briefing before departure. Bringing binoculars (with belt) is a good idea. Normal eating before departure also. An empty stomac and alcohol don't mach with boatlife when out of harbour.
