Great boat trip from Volendam to Marken
Jun 2020 • Friends
Quick scenic boat trip from Volendam to Marken. Much better than the bus. We sat in the sunshine on the upper deck for this 30 minute ride. Helpful and gracious staff. We were able to take ferry one way from Volendam and bus back to Amsterdam. If you have questions about your day trip itinerary they are most helpful. The boat was well maintained. Price was more than fair. Our route was bus from Centraal to Edam, but back to Volendam with a look around then ferry to Marken and bus back to Amsterdam Centraal. It was a perfect day trip from Amsterdam

Nice trip across to Marken which is worth a visit. Especially if you want to buy some clogs. Very helpful captain who gave us some very valuable public transport tips for onward travel from Marken.

A more relaxed way to travel to Marken from Volendam. Pleasant & comfortable. Regular short trips take around 25-30 mins

Pleasant Way to Slowly Travel From Volendam to Marken
Sep 2019
Even though there is a road to Marken, traveling by boat was a much nicer way to arrive. The boat ride was probably around 25 minutes, just enough time for a beer to enjoy while gazing out of the window. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate and allow us to sit outside.

The boat was clean, as is everything else in The Netherlands and the cost was very reasonable, at 9 euros PP.

The boat was warm and comfortable on a chilly autumn day. Be sure to get on quickly so you can get a good seat.

Fun way to travel between Marken and Volendam
Oct 2019
We recently took the ferry between Marken and Volendam and it was quite good. The pleasant ferry ride takes about half an hour, and the scenery is quite nice. The boats have comfortable indoor and outdoor seating for those brave souls that wish to battle the cold, rainy weather and get a better view. The express runs regularly between the villages and is modestly priced.
