Canal Boat Rental Amsterdam

Would you like to take a canal cruise around Amsterdam soon? Then you have many options. Will you join an organized canal cruise or rent a boat? If you want to do a canal cruise with a larger group, you can, for example, completely rent an open canal boat or traditional canal boat. This is ideal, for example, for family parties, lunch on the water, bachelor parties or company outings.

Canal cruise with a group

If you want more control over the canal tour yourself, you can choose not to join an organized tour, but rent a canal boat in Amsterdam yourself. For groups of 10 people or more, this is definitely recommended. For example, you may be picked up near your hotel or at a museum. You can also enjoy a nice meal on board or be dropped off at one of the top restaurants along the canals. It offers you the opportunity to tailor your canal cruise completely to your wishes.

Canal tour boat with skipper

When you rent a canal boat as a group, you decide together with the skipper the details of the cruise. Our experienced skippers are very much at home on and around the canals and will not only help you find the right route, but will also gladly explain what you can see during the cruise. This way you won’t have to miss anything of the beautiful city of Amsterdam during your canal cruise.
