Activity or Tour that my 86 year old father might enjoy

Recommended Posts

Arriving via Veendam (that means the far side of the the bay right?)


Am wondering about the age restrictions I am seeing on some of the ship sponsored tours (some are 80, some are 85).  Dad is mobile, but slow and he has lost his ability to walk for long periods and stairs are a problem.  I am wondering about either a driving/sightseeing tour or if there are beach bar/restaurants with either beach or bay views.


Any input and recommendations are welcome.

We’ve not used them but reviews are great. You could have a lunch prepared for you and stop at Drake’s Seat for the view, or perhaps the restaurant and beach bar at the Emerald Beach Resort right there in Lindbergh Bay.


If you decide to just enjoy a beach with nicer amenities you could just taxi to the Emerald...
