Getting in touch with the ferry

The Safe Harbour Authority runs a ferry service that services the hotel, anchored ships as well as WSV Nulde if any ships reside there. So you can reach out to the Safe Harbour Authority through VHF radio channel 88 (simplex!), DECT 8888 or by phone: +31 36 2020 702. In the Postiljon Hotel you can ask the reception to call the Safe Harbour Authority. We will pick you up as soon as we can. Visiting the hotel is not only for hotel guests. It can be fun, romantic or special to dine at the hotel overviewing the water and light shows of SHA2017!

For your safety

On the shuttle the captain/skipper is responsible for your safe crossing across the Nuldernauw. Dutch law requires you to follow the captain's/skipper's orders. This is not meant to be funny yet purely a safety and responsibility thing. That means when needed you get a task in the safe crossing or docking of the ship. In extreme situations has the right to refuse passengers. He or she can also demand people to use safety measures like the mandatory life vests, certain seating or requesting to wait for the next vessel to arrive. We are working very hard to make SHA2017 a brilliant experience. But please understand that we aim for 0 incidents and want you all to be safe. The second priority is to ensure you have a fun and a good time at SHA2017 our captains are very well aware of that. On board of the ferry and in the Safe Harbour we have Harbour facilities and rules#Harbour Rules Harbour rules in addition to the SHA2017 rules.


We try to keep this information as up to date as possible, please watch out for changes and the signs at both end of the ferry.
