Canal motorboats are close to the main channels in Amsterdam. Therefore, there location is an ideal starting point. The boats move very slow. Although you cannot go much faster, it feels a bit unsafe now and then trying to avoid the other boats. If you...More

The PERFECT Amsterdam user-captained, canal boat experience! Fantastic staff, very reasonable rates, easy to manuever, boats, and, importantly, a good dock location for some low traffic "practice" time for first-time captains before they start navigating the actual canals. The guys who run this company were...More

I've been to Amsterdam several times and my fiends and I were looking for a different way to experience the city. Driving our own boat through the canals was perfect. The view of everything from the water was very cool and you're going slow enough...More

Lovely way to visit the canals of Amsterdam - relaxing and fun! You can choose what you want to see instead of going on the covered tourist boats which are usually packed with people.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
