Hi Yasmin,

Metro (both lines, D and E) to Leuvehaven station or tram 7 to Willemsplein terminus. The boats are just opposite the tram terminus and about 5 mins walk (just go towards the harbour and the Swan bridge) from the metro station.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Do you mean the amphibian buses? http://www.splashtours.nl/en/

They leave from Parkhaven 9 opposite Euromast. www.splashtours.nl/en/point-of-departure/ You can use www.9292.nl/en to see how to get there. With all respect, I think post #1 points you to a different place...

Or do you mean the Spido boats that go through the harbor? They leave from the bottom of the Erasmus bridge at the end of the street called Schiedamsedijk. http://spido.nl/en/contact-route-and-parking (that is what post #1 might be referring to)

Or do you mean the water taxis? They go from the start of Leuvehaven to the start of Spido tours; and/or to Hotel New York. A very nice little trip and Hotel New York is a great place to have some coffee and cake (try the typically Dutch 'tompouce').

Then there are also boats going all the way to Dordrecht (also very nice) but I don't think you mean those.

More tips for nice things to see and do in Rotterdam in this thread: tripadvisor.com/…0

Have fun!

Well I assumed he meant

http://www.waterbus.nl/

which _is_ the boats going to Dordrecht (and Kinderdijk etc.). Why else would he have asked for Waterbus?

But tnx for the additions, indeed the Waterbus jetty is next to the Spido jetty...

Tnx,

Ah okay I didn't know those boats were called Waterbus (even though I've been on one).

Anyway, Yasmin now knows almost all boat options in Rotterdam and can take her pick :-)

Definitely go and see the old city center of Dordrecht. Worth the stroll. Take the train back to Rotterdam.
