Dear watersports enthusiast,
Welcome to Rotterdam, Europe’s main port. Our rivers and ports are used intensively by sea-going and inland shipping. When it comes to watersports enthusiasts, this calls for familiarity with the area and extra alertness – especially at forks in waterways and at the mouths of ports. You can find all the information you need to prepare for your stay or trip on or via this website.
Naturally, you can also count on us: the traffic guidance system ensures that all ship movements, therefore also those of recreational craft, proceed safely and smoothly.
I wish you a safe trip and lots of pleasure on the water.
René de Vries
(State) Harbour Master
