FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Where should we get on and off?

The boarding and disembarking location is at BAAI Breda on the edge of the center at the following address:

BAAI Breda, Markkade 1AB 4815 HJ Breda.

Here you will be welcomed by one of our employees.

BAAI is the perfect location for a welcome drink before your trip or just as a conclusion!

What time should we be there?

Make sure you are always present at BAAI in good time, so that you will certainly leave on time!

We always ask you to be present at least fifteen minutes before the start.

Where is the best place to park?

Unfortunately, because BAAI is located in the center of the city, we do not have our own or free parking.

The best place to park the cars is in parking garage de Prins. From here it is only a 5 minute walk to BAY.

It is also possible to park at STRND Binnen, our sister company at Slingerweg 76, 4814 AZ. This parking facility is a short 10-minute walk from BAAI.

We do have an (unguarded) bicycle shed in front of the door where you can park your bicycle or scooter.

Is there a minimum number of people to sail?

Our cruises and packages are from 10 people. It is of course possible with less, but then you have to pay for 10 people. Are you with less people? We then offer the opportunity to go sailing yourself. We would like to refer you to Self Sailing Breda.

Are all boats suitable for all ages and groups?

All boats are suitable for young and old, from bachelor day to wedding and from company party to family outings. For children we have life jackets available if desired. The tour is really enthusiastically received by young and old.
The smallest boats are for a maximum of 10 people. The largest sloops are suitable for 50 people. When the group is larger than 50 people, we can deploy several sloops at the same time that can sail next to each other.

Is there a toilet on the boats?

All sloops in our fleet are open and have no possibility for a toilet. Of course you can use the toilet at BAAI before and at the end of the trip. If you need to go to the toilet during the trip, you can indicate this to the skipper in time. We only have a limited number of locations for a toilet stop during the tour.

How can I reserve? 

You can place a request for a reservation via the website or via our contact page. A reservation is made through the booking office. They check availability and options and get back to you as soon as possible. The booking is only final after receiving a confirmation email.

How long in advance do I have to book?

It is best to make reservations for a Saturday as early as possible. Saturdays in the high season are almost always full with us, so whoever books first, who sails first! For all other days, booking a month in advance is recommended. We can often shift here and there, so call or email us directly if you want information about booking options.

NB! the reservation is final when you have received a reservation confirmation by e-mail.
For last-minute reservations, call 076-7676001 directly.

Until when can I change the reservation?

It is of course possible that something needs to be changed in your reservation. This is no problem. You can change your reservation up to a week in advance. Send the change by email and we will do everything we can to implement these changes.

You can think of changing the number of people or passing on dietary requirements. These factors must be known to us at least 1 week in advance.

We don't know exactly how many participants we are. Is this a problem?

We understand that the final number of people can always change after making a booking.

Reduction of the number of participants within a margin of 10% can be communicated free of charge in writing up to 1 week before the date of the outing. Please note the indicated minimum number of people that we charge.

How can I pay with you? 

Packages must be paid at least one week in advance of the outing. This can be done via the payment link in the confirmation email or by transfer via iDeal, stating the invoice number.

Would you like a snack or a drink at our reception location? No problem, just keep in mind that you can only pay with PIN here.

Can my dietary requirements/allergies be taken into account?

This is no problem at all! We are happy to take your diet or allergy into account. Please inform us at least one week in advance, so that we can take this into account.

Can I cancel free of charge?

When you have received a reservation confirmation by email, it is no longer possible to cancel free of charge.

If you nevertheless choose to cancel your reservation, we are forced to charge cancellation costs. We would like to refer you to our general terms and conditions.

What to do in bad weather?

We always ensure there are sufficient umbrellas and ponchos on board. When there is a short shower along the way, the skipper stops the boat briefly under one of the many bridges we encounter along the way. If it is a bit colder, we always have sufficient fleece blankets on board.

We always ask you to come to the location, so that we can look at the possibilities together.

Can I also sail in winter?

Of course! Breda is beautiful in winter and it is also possible to book an exclusive boat tour. We provide enough blankets on board so that you don't have to be cold during your trip. It is also possible to warm up on board or afterwards with a delicious glass of mulled wine.
