Ferry Terschelling


Your holiday starts on the ferry

Your holiday starts on the ferry! Enjoy the beautiful view during the crossing over the Wadden Sea towards your destination on Terschelling. The ferry departs daily at various times from Harlingen, heading for this Wadden Island. The ferry service from Harlingen to Terschelling takes about two hours. If you opt for direct express service, you will be at your destination in about 45 minutes.

During the crossing, you and your children need not get bored. Doekie, the mascot of the shipping company, is regularly on board. The children can take a picture with Doekie or can make a nice drawing together. In addition, there is sufficient (seating) space both inside and outside to enjoy the view over the Wadden Sea. While enjoying a cup of coffee with pastries or a freshly made sandwich, you will already be in the holiday mood.

Reserve your spot on the ferry 

To avoid disappointment, you are strongly advised to reserve a place on the ferry in a timely manner. You can do this via Rederij Doeksen, which handles the crossing to Terschelling. You should also reserve a place for your vehicle or bicycle, if you wish to take it to the other side. Leaving your car on the mainland is also no problem. You can safely park your car in Harlingen. There are various parking facilities, both covered and not covered. From most of the parking places, you can use the free shuttle bus that connects to the times of the ferry. Once you have arrived at the ferry terminal, the holiday can really start!
