The Oostveer is a (free) ferry connection between Java-island / KNSM-island to Amsterdam North. It opened on March 16, 2014 for a test period of at least 1 year. This test period was very successful, and it looks like the ferry connection will be permanent.
The ferry will continue to operate in 2016.
The ferry runs from early morning until 10.30 pm, every day of the year. It goes 3 times per hour, and the boat ride is approximately 8 minutes.
It is only for pedestrians, cyclists and mopeds, and there is no charge.
