We were in Rotterdam for half a day and were wondering to do some activity. We saw the water taxis racing over the river and were attracted to do it.

It was an exciting experience. The captain was definitely experienced and showed his skills with some high speed manoeuvring of the boat. 15 mins of ride to give you an adrenaline rush for the rest of the day.

Great service to move around the waters of Rotterdam in a fast and furious way and avoid long detours using the bridges. A single ride ticket in the centre of Rotterdam is 4,50 euros. There are numerous stops, such as the boarding platform on the water side of the SS Rotterdam ocean liner (now a permanently parked hotel).

Perhaps nice for tourists to get a kind of 'speedboat' experience in the center of Rotterdam. Locals hardly use this service as it is expensive. We planned to take the boat from Hotel New York to Delfshaven (price 7.50€ pp), but were told at the station we needed a reservation. We ended up taking a regular water taxi to the other side of the river and walked the last bit. Staff at the station was indifferent and not helpful. The captain was ok.

Public water transport in the Netherlands is usually affordable to all. E.g. a rapid ferry from Werkendam to Hardinxveld costs 1.93€ (similar distance by water taxi in Rotterdam 7.50€, short distance Rotterdam center 4.50€ still exorbitant).

Visited Rotterdam on a ship that docked at the cruise terminal. From our balcony it was great watching the small water taxis speeding along the river. There’s a taxi terminal near the ferry and so decided to get one to take us into the city (see my map pic). The helpful guys at the jetty booked our places and told us which number boat to look out for. We raced under the Erasmus bridge and arrived at our drop off point in around 10mins. I asked the driver about returning, he said you needed to book but as we didn’t know how to do that we caught a tram back. Our journey cost 4.50 euros each.

We had only a short trip from hotel
New York to the other side, but it was so amazing. These guys go fast! Super friendly staff at the information desk in the office, as well as the drivers of the boats. When you call them to pick you up, they’re there within minutes. The guys have a dream job and gave us a memory not to forget. Next time in Holland we’ll come back for sure. Only than well take the tour by water taxi. Gives us more time to enjoy the pleasure of the water taxi much more😉

This has got to be one of the easiest methods of getting from place to place on the water front in Rotterdam. And at #4.50 per person, is good value for money. We have used it a couple of times during our visit, and it can't be beaten for waterfront stops.

Best way to travel in Rotterdam. consider just taking a trip for fun. Its inexpensive. 4 or 5 euro for a speedy rode. There is even a 1,50 shuttle betreden centre and hotel New York.

The funniest and sometimes quickest way to travel from north to south: by water taxi. For example, from the Veerhaven to Hotel New York. You are in 5 to 10 minutes from one side to the other. The short trip offers a nice view at the skyline and the Erasmus Bridge. Always a little party to do.

A very efficient service water bus No 20 departs from the end of Erasmus bridge. You can have a harbour tour or have a go at Kinderdajk to visit the unique World Heritage 19 windmills and museum. At a price of €13 with return you can go anywhere in Rotterdam with the waterbus. Take a timetable and watch out the timings.

I would recommend a trip from a central point in the city to zalmhuis. Which is a resaurant. Make a boattrip have a drink pr lunch at the Zalhuis and go back eather with the watertaxi or with the bus without a driver (just cool to do/see) from rivium westlaan = a street name :)
