This bridge provides some of the best views of Punda & Otrobanda. It is really impressive to watch it open & close to allow ships to enter the harbor.

One of the last, if not the only, pontoon bridges in the world. Diesel powered, it opens up for the large cargo ships from the natural harbour.

Just crossing the bridge is half the fun, you have to wait around until you hear the buzzer go off that indicates it's going to move then hop on for a fun ride and some really unique photos!

I approached the bridge on foot with dozens of other visitors and dozens more local students in school uniform colors crossing from Punda to Otrabanda. A small boat approached and waited as the bridge captain blew his warning whistle and the students laughingly scrambled to beat the closing gate. They jumped on the bridge while more cautious tourists stopped curiously. The bridge captain fired his engines and floated the bridge away from the connecting dock, opening the waterway only enough to allow the 40-footer to chug through the channel he had created.
