About us

Welcome on board with Rederij van Hulst!

On the water it is the ideal place to celebrate a successful party or taste the Dutch culture! Shipping company ‘Rederij van Hulst’ likes to take you with him for a beautiful round trip or a fully organised day trip. You can also celebrate an anniversary or birthday with us on board. Together with you we discuss your wishes and then we love to do our job for you.

Our sailing area

The home port of Rederij van Hulst is located around the ‘Kagerlakes’. These are almost the biggest peat lakes of the Netherlands. In the surroundings you will find wide meadow landscapes, dozens of (historic) mills and picturesque villages. From the water you have a splendid view of this beautiful region, you can look over the scenery. This magnificent water area is situated between the cities Amsterdam, The Hague and Leiden.

Our ships and trips depart from Warmond, Leiden/Leiderdorp, Noordwijk, Katwijk and Lisse.

A view in the past

Already more than 60 years Rederij van Hulst organises activities on the water from Warmond and Noordwijk as regular boarding places. During the last 40 years the couple Van Hulst has worked hard on the family business. The company has grown into an institution in the region for events on the water.

Over the years the shipping company has been further specialised in culinary round trips and parties on the water for max. 250 guests. In 2016 Mrs van Hulst retired. Mr van Hulst is still working in the shipping company with new partners. In 2017 new ships were built. In Katwijk a location has been reconstructed into a shipyard for own usage and a real dock for the maintenance of our ships. Since 1st January 2018 Groene Hart Cruises from Leiden/Leiderdorp is part of our organisation. That’s how we completed the coverage in the region.
