Breakdown:

Explanatory note

This division includes the transport of passengers or freight over water, whether scheduled or not. Also included are the operation of towing or pushing boats, excursion, cruise or sightseeing boats, ferries, water taxis etc. Although the location is an indicator for the separation between sea and inland water transport, the deciding factor is the type of vessel used.

This division excludes restaurant and bar activities on board ships (see class 5610, 5630), if carried out by separate units.
