Facilities on board

We equip our boats with all conveniences. When the weather allows we sail with a fully open hood. All our boats can be fully or partially open so you get the best ambiance in the city in good weather. In the unlikely event of bad weather, the boat can be completely closed. In colder weather we turn on the heating so it is nice and warm inside. All boats have a toilet on board.


There is a music system on all boats. We can take care of the music, but if you prefer to hear your own playlist, you can do that via your telephone or tablet. There is a jack connection on the boat. This way you can use your own playlist from Spotify or YouTube.

Smaller groups?

This package is available for groups from 15 people. Are you with a smaller group? Please contact us to see if a different package fits or choose a boat rental with one of our culinary options.

Book a boat with a guide

Gids aan boord

A boat trip in the Amsterdam Canals is an experience and there is no need for a guide on board to enjoy the tranquility of the water, the architecture along the shores and the highlights on the canals. But maybe you and your party have sailed more often in the center and you want to offer your guests some extras this time.

In that case you can make your boat trip even more special by hiring a professional guide who tells everything about the history of the city, the architecture and interesting facts about its UNESCO heritage.
