I'm not all that interested in fishing, but my visit to the Amandine ended up being one of my favourite attractions in Ostend. Located right near the port, Amandine sailed her last journey in 1995 & is now an enjoyable little museum showing you what life would be like on a fishing vessel in extreme conditions. Fishing in the cold, stormy waters of the south coast of Iceland for months at a time was both physically & emotionally exhausting. The heroic fishermen of Ostend worked long hours, & lived & worked togeter 24/7 in tight quarters. So why did they do it? The catches consiting mainly of Cod, Haddock, Pollack, Red Mullet, Red Sea Bream, Flounder & Scottish Plaice were HUGE - much bigger than what was found in the North Sea. My visit to the Amandine made me realise that I had never really thought about what life would be like on a fishing vessel, let alone one in extreme conditions. I love museums that make you think about things you hadn't previously considered & this one did, so was a worthwhile experience.

This is the last"Belgium" ship that ever made the trip to catch fish in the Iceland waters , restored and preserved as it was ready to sail . Inside you can experience how life was on board and at land , just visit and enjoy.

The Amandine is an opportunity to learn about the former days of Icelandic fishing, watch the short film, and climb about the boat. As you would expect, cramped living quarters. We could still walk round, but would be difficult with mobility problems.

this is worth a one time visit. it is interesting for somebody who has no clue how the fishermen are living. you will see how the life on the ship looked like. and a brief history of that ship and fishing in belgium. for me it was interesting to learn that the belgian fishermen prefered to go fishing to island even though they have the sea uderneath their nose.
