Practical information about our services

This page contains a bit of information about our company and our services. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Boat tours

Depending on the season, the weather and availability of the boat, we generally offer two boat tours a day of one hour each.

We also offer boat trips on days Forteiland IJmuiden is open to the public. Tickets are available in our online shop.

Rent an entire boat

It is possible to rent the entire boat (including crew) for, for instance, boat parties, receptions and business meetings.

There are options to use all-inclusive packages and interesting excursions. We will gladly discuss your wishes and suggestions.

It is also possible to moor near the shore for a while, combined with a boat tour or pleasure cruise.

Food and drink

During regular boat tours, you can use the ship’s bar, where we serve hot and cold drinks and a wide selection of snacks.

If you are having a celebration, company get-together, package deal and other group tours, you can make use of our extensive catering.

Other services

In addition to various pleasure cruises, the IJmuidense Rondvaart also offers water taxi services, ferry services and contract journeys in the region of IJmuiden.

For example, from April to October we sail between IJmuiden and Velsen-Noord four times a day, including a stop at Forteiland on every first Sunday of the month.

Since 1997, we’ve been arranging ash scattering services on the North Sea, with or without ceremony, individually or collectively and with or without your presence on the boat. The coordinates of the scattering are carefully recorded, and if you wish they can be included on a certificate.
