  • If you chose to ride a bike out, It’s very nice ride out to the ferry departure site. You pass by some very nice parks and ride through the very modern IJbug. The ferry ride itself is pleasant and enj...  more »

  • It's pleasant enough but as a captive audience you are going to be taken advantage at in the restaurants on board ☺️
  • Great to visit Pampus and Muidersloot. You have to book in advance. Nice boat, inside and oudside sitting area. Small bar on board. Very friendly staff.
  • A beautiful and calm way to get to Muiderslot or Pampus Island. The voyage was smooth and restful with little engine noise. I really liked the 2 men who ran the boat. They weren't jaded cynical tourist milkers but clearly enjoyed their jobs and were proud of the boat. They were clear about safety. The boat from 1899 (that I was on. There is another boat from 1938) was clean and very well maintained and still had its original fittings and character and hadn't been dolled up into a plastic Disneyland fantasy. There is basic coffee available but the ride is only 45 minutes so you'll want to be on deck to see everything. We bought our tickets online ahead of time but you can also buy tickets on the boat if there is room.
  • Great customer service from Jeroen. Two beer taps and a great historic boat from the 1890s to take you to Pampus or Muiderslot.
  • Free ferry service . Lots of departures
