What you'll do

We welcome you to experience the Amsterdam canals in maximum comfort and style, aboard one of our truly unique handcrafted electric boats.

Beginning and ending the cruise in the Royal Streets of the canal district will bring you to one of the most picturesque areas of the city.

Step aboard, sit back and relax as we serve a round of drinks to begin the cruise.

Perfectly designed for small groups, couples, families and solo travellers to gain an insight into Amsterdam canal life, history and culture aboard the least touristy boats of uncompromised quality.

We will cruise the canal district, River Amstel and old city, to include as much as possible in a short space of time.

With our different groups of guests arriving as strangers, we love to see how our experiences connects people, by enjoying the cruise together, finding common ground and stepping off the boat as friends, often exploring the city together.

Be warned, our one hour cruise will leave you wanting more, but not to worry, we also offer a number of other fun and relaxing extended cruises, including a breakfast, brunch, evening and extended 2 hour all inclusive cruise.

To complete the experience, a ‘must do’ self guided walk of the district, either before or after the cruise will fill you with insight into the local lifestyle of our enchanting city.
