Availability of Open Boat Tours
From November 16 to December 31, 2021, the regular Open Boat Tours will not operate. For a tour through the city center, you can go on our heated Amsterdam Canal Cruise, or book a sloop during Amsterdam Light Festival.
It's time for an open boat in Amsterdam. The city and its canals haven't been as quite as they are right now for a long time. So take the bull by the horns and discover your (capital) city this summer. The best view of Amsterdam, you ask? There’s only one answer: from an open boat! Cruise the canals in one of our electric, thus sustainable, open boats. The captain, who’s your personal guide, will show you exactly why a part of the city center is UNESCO world heritage. All our open boats are made COVID-19 safe.
Most excellent boat tour in Amsterdam
Our professional skippers, with their endless knowledge and anecdotes about the city, make the open boat tours a truly unique and personal experience. Tell the captain what you want to see and he or she knows just where to take you. From famous movie locations, canal houses from the Dutch Golden Age to the most beautiful and less discovered canals.
Yes, that’s correct! The open boat tours take you to the canals the regular canal tours can’t access. Thanks to the shape, the boat is not only easy to maneuver but also very cozy. An open boat cruise during a warm summer’s day or evening will be pleasing to everyone and we make sure you’re just as comfortable during the darker winter months as well, of course.
Picnic on the water
Would you like to have a picnic during the boat trip? Well, that is possible! Book a picnic basket to make the cruise even more romantic. Choose between a beer, a delicious wine or go for the non-alcoholic option. Furthermore, the basket is filled with traditional cheese from Henri Willig and crisps. The basket is €12.50 per person and upon arrival, the basket will be filled to your drink of choice. The basket as shown on the picture is for 2 persons
The basket is filled with:
- Beer, wine or soft drinks
- Bottle of water - with or without bubbles
- Cheese from Henri Willig
You can add the picnic basket when booking
We’d love to welcome all the families back on board. That’s why we have a special offer for kids.
- All kids receive a coloring page or an Amsterdam bingo

Welcome to the Netherlands; the country of cheese, clogs and unreliable weather. You may have booked a tour while the weather predictions were outstanding. A comfortable temperature and no clouds in sight. But then, the weather turns and so does your smile... No worries! In case of rain, we'll make sure you're still cruising the canals of Amsterdam in style - and stay dry at the same time. We've got you covered!
