Not many people know The Hague has canals. Not so many as Amsterdam off course, but we have some an you can cruise the canals. However our bridges are lower than the average Amsterdam bridges, so the best tours are with small uncovered little canal boats. Good weather gives a better experience.
Yesterday I was tested as a volunteer skipper for one of the companies offering trips, De Willemsvaart. I believe the boss was satisfied with my maneuverability. So it is possible you have me as your captain when you book a tour in 2015. They close down for the winter next week.
While maneuvering the little boat we encountered a family of Nile Geese. Quite extraordinary in November.
