Frequently Asked Questions
When and where can I find out the exact dates of a river conveyance?
Why is a river conveyance often postponed at short notice?
Whenever a river conveyance to the North Sea take place, we have to consider several factors like the weather, wind and tides along the River Ems. That’s why a conveyance sometimes have to be postponed at short notice. You can find our current schedule on this website and Facebook page.
Why does a conveyance not always take place at the weekend or in the afternoon?
The scheduling of our conveyances is determined by nature. The difficult manoeuvre can only be pulled off in good weather conditions and with high water levels along the River Ems.
Can I take part in a sea trial or ems conveyance?
Due to security concerns, visitors unfortunately cannot participate in a sea trial or ems conveyance. Navigating the river Ems is a highly challenging manoeuvre that sometimes even has to be postponed at short notice due to unsuitable tide and weather conditions.
