Bus 43 between Brugge and Damme doesn't operate at weekends so it might well also not operate during school holidays, which begin on Friday - or may even have just begun in some areas.

I think there are other buses that pass close to Damme, you can always ask at the De Lijn office outside Brugge station. And the Belbus (dial-a-bus service: 059 56 52 56) will be operating, although to use this you have to have access to a Belgian phone number so that they can phone you back to give/confirm pick-up times; and you also have to know the names of the stops you want to be picked up from or dropped off at. Again, the DL office should be able to help you.

Thanks - however, the last boat to Damme is 6 PM , whereas the last boat from Damme is at 5.20 PM ? Does this seem correct ??

Yes, perfectly correct. The boat is based at Damme, so departs from there in the morning before it can return there from Brugge, and this continues throughout the day. with departures FROM Damme 09.15 - Brugge 10:00 - Damme 11:00 - Brugge 12:00 - Damme 13:00 - Brugge 14:00 - Damme 15:00 - Brugge 16:00 - Damme 17:20 - Brugge 18:00, so it ends up in Damme for the night.

It's not actually all that far to walk back to Brugge, if no buses are running.

And I feel obliged to warn you that in my opinion, this is the most boring boat ride in the world.
