K.R.V.E. and Rotterdam Pilots

Two parties of the nautical service providers, the Koninklijke Roeiers Vereeniging Eendracht (Boatmen) and Loodswezen Rotterdam – Rijnmond (Pilots), who offer their services 24/7 to smoothly and safely enter and leave the port of Rotterdam. The Pilots advice the Captains during the trip to their destination and are an essential part of the communication between harbour tugs and the Boatmen. The K.R.V.E. takes care of safely (un)mooring the vessels and they provide crewmembers on deck when necessary. The presentation on the Willemskade gives an impression of these two companies.  Our Pilot station Vessel ‘Polaris’ will be open for visitors on Saturday and on Sunday as long as she is not participating in any nautical operations. You will find all opening times at the quay.
