The distance between The Marina of Andijk and Volendam is about 22 miles
Volendam is a famous place on the IJsselmeer coast. The village is built along the dyke and
in its centre there is a small harbour. From time immemorial it has been a fishing
village and fish of all kinds, especially eels, are on sale. Just behind the dyke there is
another Volendam with narrow streets, fishermen's cottages, an old labyrinth, narrow canals and
clogs still outside the doors. At festivals many of the inhabitants still dress in Volendam
costume as if time had stood still.

Volendam and Marken are neighbors on the IJsselmeer.
They’re both quaint villages that are attractive and pleasant to walk through.
The land route between these two towns is much longer than the sea route so there is a ferry in place to help out travelers.
The thirty minute crossing may not get you there any faster but the experience will probably be more enjoyable than going by road.
The one-way trip takes about 30 minutes.
Departures from Volendam: every 30/45 minutes from 11:00 till 17:30 hrs.
Departures from Marken: every 30/45 minutes from 11:30 till 18:00 hrs.
