Rules sailing in the Biesbosch

Every year thousands of holidaymakers seek their entertainment in the Biesbosch, to do an excursion by boat or bike, evening stroll, picnic or overnight. Anyway, in order to protect nature and to allow everyone to fully enjoy this area a number of rules apply in the National Park.
Obviously in nature you must not leave any waste behind, not turn on loud music or lit flames. Fast sailing (+6 km / h) is not allowed, especially in the creeks. Unfortunately, the supervisors of the Biesbosch often have their hands full by talking to offenders about their behavior. Read the following rules before visiting the Biesbosch, ultimately: it is a small effort to honor these simple rules and moreover not risk losing hefty fines!

Ten rules

1. The maximum speed in the creeks is 6 km / h. On some larger waters and rivers you can 9 km / h
2. Commercial boats always take precedence
3. It is prohibited to enter closed areas or creeks
4. Mooring is only allowed at jetties, moorings and playing fields.
5. Camping is only allowed in specified places: wild camping is prohibited
6. Campfires are not permitted
7. Barbecues must be at least 50 cm high (no disposables)
8. Take your waste with you or throw it in the trash or into one of the bins present in the area
9. Fishing is only allowed with a permit
10. The Biesbosch is a sanctuary, honor it
