Every day, De Mercuur sails from the port of Den Helder to go sea fishing on the North Sea. When going on a company outing, you can choose from one of three activities:

Wreck fishing company outing

Wreck fishing is an exciting type of sea fishing. The captain sails onto the North Sea and anchors the ship somewhere above one of the many wreckages that dot the bed of the North Sea. The ship and aircraft wrecks are an ideal hiding place for cod, as they provide shelter and hold large quantities of food. Together with your colleagues, you can enjoy an exciting day of sea fishing on De Mercuur. Spend a day away from work, boosting your group dynamics in a relaxed environment. A sea fishing company outing will bring any team of colleagues closer together.

Duration of a wreck fishing company outing: from 08.00 am to 4.30 pm

Company outing cod fishing

On the Mercuur, you can fish for cod from the beginning of October until the end of May. When you go on a cod fishing company outing, you will spend a day aboard De Mercuur, primarily fishing for this popular fish above wreckages. The cod you manage to catch can be cleaned on one of De Mercuur’s cleaning tables right away. Naturally, you can take your catch back home with you.
