Dokkumer Ee & Dokkumer Grootdiep
The link Haninxma-Kanaal at Leeuwarden to Lauwermeer. Biggest place along the canalized small river is the town of Dokkum.
From here Reitdiep goes to the southeast and flows into Van Starkenborgh - Kanaal north of Groningen. The northern stretch is part of the Staande Mastroute. This route is now hardly used by commercial vessels and has nice surroundings. It has therefore more charme then the direct route over Prinses-Margriet-Kanaal. But, it's a bit longer though.

Hallumer Trekvaart, Finkumervaart and Stienservaart are the short links from Dokkumer Ee to the places of Hallum, Finkum and Stiens.
