Amsterdam Ferry Port

DFDS Seaways Amsterdam ferry port is located in the small town of IJmuiden, located on the outskirts of Amsterdam.  The ferry port is ideally located close to Amsterdam's excellent motorways, making it the ideal gateway into Europe, especially from Scotland and the North-East of England.


Terminal Felison,
Sluisplein 33,
1975 AG IJmuiden,

Getting to the port by car:

When you’re on the A9 coming from Amsterdam, Den Haag, Haarlem or Alkmaar you take the turn to IJmuiden. Then drive next to the channel and go right on the ‘Pontplein’ so you still drive with the channel on your right. Drive through, under the viaduct and at the roundabout go right. Now you’re driving on the ‘Halkade’, follow this road until you arrive at the Felison Terminal.

Getting to the port by bus:

In co-operation with a local coach firm, DFDS Seaways provides a connecting coach service between the ferry port in Amsterdam (Felison Terminal in IJmuiden) and the Central Railway Station in Amsterdam. On days of departure coaches leave the central station between 15.00 and 16.00.

On arriving at the Amsterdam ferry port, a coach transfer departs from IJmuiden and heads into the Amsterdam city centre. The coach stop in Amsterdam is opposite Central Station, in front of Hotel Victoria, Damrak 1. Tickets can be purchased in advance through DFDS Seaways UK at time of booking.

Please note these transfers are only included in mini cruises and hotel break products. If you are booking a ferry crossing as a foot passenger to Amsterdam, then coach transfers must be purchased separately.
