FutureLand Ferry

Experience Maasvlakte 2 on the FutureLand Ferry

Come on board and see the new quays and container terminals of Maasvlakte 2. Experience for yourself how high a quay wall can be or just how colossal container cranes are when you sail past them on the FutureLand Ferry. You simply can’t get closer to the most modern port area in action!

Welcome aboard

Enjoy the stunning views from inside or from outside in the fresh air. During the trip, a very knowledgeable FutureLand guide will explain the definitive Maasvlakte 2 story, in Dutch. This story is not available anywhere else. The detailed information is provided in Dutch, factsheets are available in English and German. Or you can follow the audio tour in English and German on regular tours on your smartphone. Don’t forget your headphones!

The FutureLand Ferry operates every week from Tuesday to Friday and on Sundays. FutureLand is also open on Saturdays from May to September. We set sail on those days too. The FutureLand Ferry departs from and berths right in front of the entrance to the information centre and is accessible by wheelchair.

Tour Maasvlakte 1 & 2

The FutureLand Ferry regularly sets sail for a particularly extensive boat trip, taking you past the newest Maasvlakte 2 container terminals to Europahaven at Maasvlakte. Here you can witness the existing container terminals in full operation. The guide explains the differences and similarities between existing terminals and the new RWG and APM Terminals, where containers have been loaded and unloaded since 2014.
