Het IJThe IJ (pronounced [ɛi̯]; sometimes shown on old maps as Y or Ye) is a body of water, formerly a bay, in the Dutch province of North Holland. It is known for being Amsterdam's waterfront. It is considered a river by Rijkswaterstaat (a branch of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment), though some contest this qualification, calling the IJ a lake. Its name is an obsolete Dutch word meaning \"water\", derived from the West Frisian word ie \"stream, small river\" (from Germanic *ahwō, \"water\") and is cognate with Dutch Aa/Ee names for bodies of water. The name consists of the digraph ij, which behaves like a single letter. Therefore, both letters are capitalized; cf. IJmuiden.Show on map
MarsdiepThe Marsdiep is a deep tide-race between Den Helder and Texel in the Netherlands, and running southwards between sandbanks. That gap connects the North Sea and the Waddenzee.

An early form of its name is Maresdeop, a name probably related to modern Dutch moerasdiep (\"swamp deep\").
