Sailing trip with MS Sabine
The cruise starts from Nyhavn 2 by Havnegade 4 in Middelfart. Boarding is next to KulturØen, where Sabine is docked right by the jetty leading from the mobile home site.
En route, you will get in close to the porpoise, one of the smallest species of whale on the planet. Your captain will tell you all about them and their life in the Little Belt. There are about 3,000 porpoises in the waters of the Little Belt, all year round. So we can guarantee that porpoise will be seen on every single cruise.
MS Sabine has plenty of space, even if you want to enjoy the Little Belt from the warmth of a heated cabin. Your journey will be comfortable, regardless of weather conditions. You can also park in an indoor car park just 200 metres from the boat.
See how many porpoises you can spot as they come up for air!
From oil tanker vessel to modern cruise boat
MS Sabine was built at Esbjerg’s shipyard in 1959 as the third of four identical oil tankers ordered by the Gulf oil company.
From 1999 until 2018, she sailed as a pleasure craft under the name Langli, including on routes along the Swedish coastline, down through Germany and on the North Sea. She was re-registered as a commercial vessel in 2018, certified as a cruise vessel for up to 12 passengers and rechristened to MS Sabine.
In 2019, MS Sabine is equipped with modern equipment like VHF radio, a chart plotter, radar, autopilot, AIS, and digital sea charts etc. There is plenty of seating space inside, as well as a well-functioning kitchen and, of course, a toilet. There is ample room on deck for fishing, or just to sit and enjoy the weather and the seascape. The boat is heated with an oil stove.

Sea Kayaking on the Little Belt
If you are a group of experienced kayakers, you can come on an exclusive tour of the Little Belt where there is an excellent chance of meeting the harbour porpoise. The experienced guide and instructor knows where these fascinating small whales can usually be found and is knowledgeable about the porpoises and other natural phenomena which you may meet along the way.
The tour also offers excellent kayaking in strong currents and the instructor will demonstrate paddling techniques, explain about kayaking rules in the busy waters etc. This kayaking trip is not for beginners. Focus will be the on the fantastic marine environment around us, using the kayak as a pleasurable form of transport.
The kayakers must have a minimum of the Sea Kayaking Board’s EPP 2 paddling level, or the equivalent. In addition, everyone must be competent in basics such as saving your buddy which we will start the trip with, so that everyone is up to date with safety procedures.
