The Oude Maas ("Old Meuse") is a stretch of river in South Holland in the Netherlands. It begins at the city of Dordrecht where the Boven-Merwede(?) forks into the Noord River and the Oude Maas.

The Dordtse Kil forks off soon after Dordrecht. After that the Oude Maas forms the northern boundary of the Hoeksche Waard region, flowing west until the Spui River forks off at the town of Oud-Beijerland. The Oude Maas then heads northwest between the towns/cities of Spijkenisse and Hoogvliet and joins the Nieuwe Maas opposite the city of Vlaardingen, flowing into the Nieuwe Waterweg.

The river is tidal and has nature and recreation areas.
