Amsterdam Boat Center - Classic Canal Cruises and Private Boat Tours


It’s as easy as ABC with the Amsterdam Boat Center for Classic Canal Cruises and Private Boat Tours!


Hello and Welcome, new friends!

Amsterdam is undeniably a special city. Whether you have just arrived or have been living here for a while, everyone will agree, one of the best ways to enjoy Amsterdam is by boat. Synonymous with Dutch culture, our charming canals are unique and allow us to appreciate the city’s timeless beauty, historical landmarks and architecture from the water the city is built upon.

Cruising the canals of Amsterdam is a "must-do" and that’s why the locals do it all the time. In all seasons, rain or shine, day or night, you will see life on the canals and boats cruising by with smiling faces. We live in a picture-perfect city, full of charm, rich in history and we want to share it with you.

Allow us to introduce ourselves

Amsterdam Boat Center is a friendly local company, well known and loved in the community. Situated in the heart of the city on one of the main canals, at Singel 315, you will find our office with a large selection of boats, services and friendly staff willing to help.

We specialise in helping find the right boat and experience for you. We arrange personalised Private Boat Tours and offer daily Classic Canal Cruises. 


Our Classic Canal Cruises

While you are visiting the city centre, simply step onboard a classic salon boat and let our captain guide you through the lovely canals and bridges of the golden era and show you the highlights of Amsterdam. What a convenient way to discover the old town in a luxury boat setting, perfect for anyone and your visiting guests.

Cruise time is 1,5 hours with a guided tour in English. Tea and coffee are included or you can purchase other drinks on board. Sit back and relax while the captain shares stories of Amsterdam.

Classic Canal Cruises depart daily at 11.30am, 1.30pm and 3.30pm, near our office on Singel 315. Tickets for adults and children are available on our website or contact us directly.

Whether it’s cruising at sunset with a glass of champagne, enjoying a three-course dinner, planning a family outing or doing business while you gaze over the elegance of this captivating city, we have a fleet of luxury classic salon boats and open boats which come with your very own captain.

Our salon boats have wooden crafted interiors with modern comforts and bar and bathroom onboard. We offer different catering options from light lunches, buffets, seated dinners or perhaps you would like a casual cruise with drinks and enjoy some local snacks. We can have warm bitterballen delivered fresh to your boat!

Our open boats are always a fun option and come with optional covers which makes them suitable in most weather conditions all year round. All our boats are electric and eco-friendly.
