It was a good idea to start the Badboot, a floating swimmingpool in the docks of the harbour of Antwerp and to transfer it in winter to a ice-skating arena.

Unfortunately it sunk down to the bottom of that dock last year and will not be restored any more.

Really! It actually sunk in the dock and has been salvaged two months ago. I hope however, they will make a new one, because the idea was excellent and swimming there with a cocktailbar at hand was great

The boat sunk into the river and so there's no more badboot.
So don't go there :-) It will be quite dissapointing.

The boot has sunk and its forbidden to dive, so you cannot visit him anymore, even the acces of the dock is forbidden.

Unfortunatly the 'badboot' - one of the largest floating pools in the world does not float any more... It sunk some months ago, so don't bother looking for it

so much fun, on a hot day! swimmling in a floating pool. They have a space for lane-swimmers now too. The nsupervision is friendly and coreect. Nice bar on the boat too. You reserve a time slot online and then you have an hour (or more if there's not too many people). Do try bar Panique in the hangar next to it...

Super clean barge pool in Antwerp Harbour with lovely warm showers after your swim. A great experience. One thing though - the boys could not wear their board shorts and had to BUY fluorescent blue lycra boxer shorts to wear in the pool. Cringe!

A really fun place to swim. Great to be in a warm clean pool in the middle of the docks!

Reasonably priced at €12 for 4 of us - but you only get an hour. The astro turf sun deck was a nice touch.

No Bermuda shorts allowed though. ..

We had a great early-evening swim at this barge pool in Antwerp Harbour. The water was warm, the pool and dressing rooms tidy, and at 4euro per person it was entirely reasonable. We had trouble finding it (more signage would help) but were so happy we did.
