Accompanying De Ruyter on the Hr.Ms.Mahu

June 24, 07:30-12:00 a.m.

The entering of the naval ship the Zr.Ms.De Ruyter is a unique event for Zeehavendagen Amsterdam. This event is even more special when you as a visitor can experience this up close on Hr.Ms. Mahu from 1961.

The shallow-water minesweeper accommodates only 25 people. A special tour awaits them starting behind CS Amsterdam (Steiger 14) from where they will set course for IJmuiden. There, the frigate of the Royal Netherlands Navy will leave Zeesluis IJmuiden around 9:30 a.m. After saluting the ship, the Mahu escorts the De Ruyter until she docks at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam.

Nautilus and the River Dream
Should the Hr.Ms.Mahu be fully booked. Not to worry. The 1964 diving ship the Nautilus also sails to IJmuiden on Saturday morning for the escort of De Ruyter to Amsterdam. Not the whole tour to IJmuiden v.v. experience? Then book the Escort Tour on the River Dream. This tour ship accompanies the naval frigate from its entry on the IJ (near the Coentunnel).

De Ruyter will be open ship on Saturday, June 24 from around 1:30 p.m. and all day Sunday. After being dropped off by the Mahu at Steiger 14 behind CS Amsterdam, it is a 10-minute walk to the vessel's berth. Click here if you want to know more about tours on the Zr.Ms.De Ruyter.
