The next day, we set a sail to Giethoorn center yet again for the very famous boat riding all by ourselves. A lot of vendors are available to rent their boats. We had rented a whisper boat which is basically an open punter boat equipped with silent electric motor that is powered – hence the nick name ‘whisper’.
The initial five minutes of helming the boat was scary, to be honest – for someone who has never helmed one. Bumping into other boats, turning the wrong way etc. But, once you get a hang of it, it’s amazing!!! Enjoy the boat ride for about an hour without the stench and noise of engines and explore the rustic surroundings. Make sure to follow the map in order, not to get lost.
