FAQ Goldelse & Beluga

meeting point Beluga & Goldelse

Where do we find the boat?
The meeting point is at the bus stop Pichelswerder (bus M49 direction Spandau). Please wait for us there. We will pick you up. Please understand that delays will be deducted from your journey time. The bus stop is closest to the boat pier. We will call you if we do not find you at the meeting point. Please do not try to find the pier on your own, but wait for us there! If you arrive by car: We recommend Heerstraße 185 in 13595 Berlin as the address for your navigation system. Park your car in the forest car park (see sketch) and take all your things with you to the meeting point at the bus stop on the other side of Heerstraße.

Can we get to the boat earlier to put up decorations?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. We can only let you on board as a complete group and at the earliest 10 minutes before the agreed start time.

Can I drive up to the boat to unload?
The meeting point is the closest place to unload a car. You can really only get to the boat's mooring on foot (via an approx. 200 m long trail). It is best to park in the free forest car park and as close as possible to Heerstraße. Please note: The trail is not passable for wheelchair users or only with assistance. Guests with walking difficulties are advised to consult us before setting off.

What happens in bad weather?
The boat is covered and offers protection from rain. It is not possible to postpone or cancel the tour due to bad weather. Only in the event of severe weather (hail, storm, volcanic eruption, lightning & thunder) will the tour be canceled by us. You will then receive an alternative date or your money back. Please do not be misled by weather forecasts!

Can we stop on the way to pick up or drop off people?
This is only possible by prior arrangement and only in the home port. The normal tour always starts and ends in the home port. In between, you can of course anchor in a beautiful bay at any time. But then you can only leave the boat in a swimming costume ;) We are not allowed to pick up or drop off guests at any other pier or jetty.

Is there a music system on board?
Yes, a BlueTooth box is on board and included in the price. Please do not bring your own sound system on board. Towards the evening we have to reduce the music volume significantly.

Can we bring food and drinks?

  • self-catering: You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks free of charge. Please bring cups (NO glass), plates, cutlery and approx. 10 kg of ice cubes for the cooler (1 x 0.5 m). After the tour you have to take your waste (also bottles etc.) with you. It is best to plan your own car for this.

  • bring your own food - order drinks with us: Alternatively, you can bring your own food and pre-order chilled drinks from us. We will then also take care of the complete waste disposal. However, please remember to bring plates and cutlery for your food.

  • carefree package: If you like it uncomplicated, you can order drinks and a complete catering from us. We provide glasses / cups, plates and cutlery and provide you with food and iced drinks. Of course, we also take care of the complete cleaning and waste disposal.
