Welcome to our port and to the Amsterdam region. Here you will find everything you need to know and do when you visit Amsterdam.
The canals have an open connection with the IJ. The IJ is rough water with heavy shipping traffic and is prohibited for small craft that are not suitable for this purpose, such as dinghies and pedal boats (BPR 1.06).
Plan your visit
A visit to the Amsterdam water starts with a good preparation. Plan your route and see if there are any obstructions. Also make sure you are familiar with the sailing rules and that you have paid inland water fees.
Pleasure boating and commercial shipping meet in the port of Amsterdam, sometimes literally in each other's waters. Dangerous situations can then arise. The sailing rules ensure a safe course of shipping traffic.
