COVID-19 safety measures
We’ll be cruising soon! We have taken strict security measures to ensure everyone's safety. You and your party are safe on our canal cruises, open boats and pedal boats - so you can enjoy Amsterdam carefree.
For example, we have provided enough space to adhere the 1.5-meter rule, we clean our boats thoroughly and we ensure there’s enough time and space during boarding and disembarkation. Take a look at the image on the right to see what the exact measures are and what we ask of you to make sure we are out together safely.
Please come by foot or by bike to not burden the public transport.

Why can I only buy tickets online?
By purchasing your ticket in advance, we can easily regulate the number of people on our moorings and boats. We also prevent group formation in the shops and on the docks. We do this to ensure that everyone has a nice outing as safe and carefree as possible and to prevent rows in public space.
Why do I have to book my ticket for a specific time slot?
You buy your ticket in advance and for a specific time so that you are assured of a place on board and you do not have to queue. This way we keep the moorings and shops as empty as possible and we can guarantee your safety. Make sure you are at your boarding location at the specified time, so that the boarding process can be carried out as efficiently as possible.
Do I also need to purchase a ticket for young children?
Yes. Children between 0 and 3 years old cruise for free. Still, when you book, we want you to make a reservation for them. This is completely free of charge, of course. This way we know exactly how many people we have on board and we ensure a safe day out.
Can I use my Club van Elf-pass and Amsterdam Pass?
No. Unfortunately it is not possible to use the Club of Eleven Pass. The Amsterdam Pass isn't valid as well. As soon as this is possible again, you will be notified!
