Great way to move around

Watertaxi is great way to move around in Rotterdam... and it's a lot of fun! On top of that it's quite cheap. Take a spin.

Took the water taxi from Rivium to Veerhaven. Choppy Maas made it a fun ride. Cheaper and faster than a road taxi and so much more fun.

The water was choppy but our pilot said it was pretty calm for a normal day. Very convenient and provides a nice view of harbour. Drops you off beside the Marine Museum (as we requested) and a short walk to the Metro. Not cheap at $4.50 PP but it was fun.

Just shortly: if you are in The Netherlands and in Rotterdam - just do this! Trip from Hotel New York to downtown or to Schiedam... Especially when wind is taking away your umbrella. Have fun!

When your in Rotterdam, you have to take for sure the Watertaxi to you destination! It is really a sensation how they cross over the water, with a very fast speed.

The way to travel from A to B when visiting the city of Rotterdam! Take a water taxi and experience the city from the water with the skyline as backdrop. Hop on by ordering a water taxi by phone and pay only € 4 to travel within the city centre. Must do!

Our first boat was fast and fun. We loved it because the waves were also pretty high. Our return boat was the other way around iT was very slow and because of the big waves not So much fun. It is about 10€ for from oneside to the other with 2 adults. Kids are about 1 or 2€

If you have some spare time and like to cross the river by boat (maids the busy cargo ships) the watertaxi offers a nice mean to 'set sail' to the Hotel (restaurant) New York, which is the spot where many Dutch and German emigrants started their journey for a new life in the US. The peninsula also houses a skyline... More
