Feel like a VIP on the water in our boat with captain. Because the best view of Amsterdam, you ask? We only have one answer to that: from an open boat! Cruise through the canals on one of our electric, sustainable sloops. Your captain, also your personal guide, will show you why part of your (capital) city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Amsterdam and the canals have not been as empty in recent years as they are now. An excellent opportunity to discover your own city or capital from a completely new perspective! Seize this opportunity for a unique view of Amsterdam from an open boat.
This boat tour is also available as a regular open boat tour.
What to expect?
While enjoying a cool drink from our shop (you get it for free!) you cruise through Amsterdam with a skipper. You board from our jetty opposite the Rijksmuseum and that’s also where your cruise ends. The first 75 minutes of the tour costs € 135. Book more hours? No problem. For € 99 per hour we'll show you Amsterdam for a bit longer. Keep in mind that you can join our open boat with a maximum of 6 people from the same household.
Best cruise in the city
Our professional skippers, with their endless knowledge and beautiful anecdotes about our city, ensure that the Amsterdam boat trip is a truly unique experience. Tell the captain what you’re interested in and he or she knows exactly which route to take. From famous film locations, canal houses from the Golden Age to the most beautiful and less discovered canals.
Open boat tour
Yes, you read that right! The open boat takes you to canals the regular canal cruises cannot reach. Due to the shape of the open boat, it is not only easy to maneuver through narrow canals, but also cozy. On a warm summer day it is wonderful to sit on an open boat and we make sure that you are at least as comfortable in winter, too.
Just like you, we love Amsterdam. That’s why we think it’s important that we treat the city with respect and continue to take good care of it. Our sloops therefore cruise with an electric motor. That way you are assured of the most sustainable and green way of exploring Amsterdam and future generations will also be able to enjoy our beautiful city.
As of September 25 2021, the 1.5 meter rule will be removed. The "1.5m society" is being brought to an end which means that we may again use full capacity on our Amsterdam Canal Cruise, Open Boats and Pedal Boats. Our guests will not have to be checked for a Corona Access Certificate In this regard we follow the guidelines of the RIVM.
Have fun on your open boat tour in Amsterdam!
