Spido

Spido sails the whole year round from the foot of the Erasmus Bridge, offering day tours and theme cruises on the water. Spido is one of Rotterdam’s biggest attractions. Founded in 1919 as a water transport service, the company reinvented itself after the Second World War as a cruise operator. Today it is a five-ship fleet offering a variety of tours.

The Port of Rotterdam tour (75 minutes) sails year-round and gives passengers a short but powerful impression of Rotterdam’s container ports. The route also passes sights like the Hotel New York, the Euromast, and the ss Rotterdam. A number of exciting day trips are also available, like to the tweede Maasvlakte or Willemstad. Spido also frequently runs theme cruises such as the Bridge Tour or Valentine Dinner Cruise. In July and August, there are summer tours and extended port cruises, each with a duration of 2.5 hours. All these tours can also be booked for groups up to a maximum of 200 persons. Tours are normally given in Dutch, with English, French and German available on request.

You’ll find Spido in the Scheepsvaartkwartier (Maritime District), a five-minute walk from metro and tram station Leuvenhaven. Parking is available at Spido for both passenger cars and touring cars.
