I believe there is a hydrofoil that goes from the area (perhaps Velsen?) regularly and only takes about half an hour to reach Amsterdam. This would be ideal for us as we would enjoy the scenery from the boat. However, I am not sure where the hydrofoil leaves from in relation to where the boat fromk Newcastle pulls in. Does anybody know about this? We will have our luggage with us so are hoping we can easily get from one to the other.
Alternatively, does anybody know how much the DFFS bus costs and whether we can simply purchase a ticket on that bus?
