Explore Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s fantastic architecture is best seen from a sightseeing boat on the canals. But Amsterdam is also a great city to explore by bike or foot. Sign up for a group tour or excursion or feel like a local and discover Amsterdam on your own. Sign up for a tour or excursion to discover a side of Amsterdam you might never see on your own. For example, a canal cruise is an absolute must for every first-time visitor. Or travel outside the city and experience the typically Dutch landscape of windmills, dikes and manicured green pastures. Stroll through quaint fishing villages, take a boat tour along the scenic waterways or cycle along the dunes.

Canal Motorboats

With Canal Motorboats you can hire a specialised boat for an hour or two or three… and make your way around the city taking tons of photos and making fantastic memories with friends and family. The company’s marina is centrally located, just 10 minutes from Central Station and just five minutes from the beginning of the Prinsengracht. Each boat can carry up to seven people and naturally larger parties can hire multiple boats. The boats are very easy to navigate and always come with a detailed canal map and pillows and blankets.
