Update June 25th, 16.45


During the cabinet's press conference on June 24th, some relaxation of the corona measures was announced. 


As of July 1st, all seats in Public Transport may be occupied again. The ministry has classified the Wadden ferries under Public Transport. By cancelling this capacity limitation means that the capacity of our ships may be increased again to the old level. These adjustments have already been incorporated in our booking system.


The timetable for July and August is published and can be booked on this website. This timetable was created in accordance with corona measures that we still have to adhere to, such as phased boarding and disembarkation. As a result, sailing times may differ from the previously published timetable. If you travel to Terschelling and change your departure time, you will be notified in time. All guests who travel to Vlieland and whose departure time changes have been informed by us.


Because it is currently very busy at our Contact Center, we kindly request you not to contact us by telephone.


Please keep an eye on our website for current information.

The first sailing of ms Willem Barentsz

What a party!! Ms Willem Barentsz entered the timetable for the very first time on Friday 3 July.


On Wednesday 1 July 2020, the new LNG catamaran ms Willem Barentsz was already presented to (trade) press and invitees. Here a short impression made by Terschelling TV.

Grand Café Promenade

The Grand Café Promenade is situated on the shore of the Waddenzee, in the ferry terminal of Rederij Doeksen in Harlingen. A splendid location where you can already enjoy the island feeling on the large patio in sunny weather. The Grand Café is an eminently suitable spot for a meeting point or to have a meal together. Waiting for the ferry or your fellow travelers.

Doeksen green

Durable and responsible entrepreneurship is very important to Rederij Doeksen. In the design and construction of our new ships we aim for environmentally friendly means of propulsion and durable materials, we also use LED-lighting and FSC paper. 


Are you also concerned about the environment? Then book a voluntary CO2-surcharge of 50 cents in addition to a single fare, when booking your ticket online. This entire amount will be used to reduce the CO2-emission.

Want to shop before you step on board?

At the ferry terminal in Harlingen you will find al little shop called 'de Parlevinker'. In this nice convenience store you can buy newspapers, magazines, greeting cards, souvenirs, books and island products.
