Canal cruises amsterdam
Meet Captain dave
—and his team of lively captains
Captain Dave’s specialty is THE MORNING.
“You can always wake me up for an Early Morning cruise. So unique.”
Hi, my name is Dave born and raised in Amsterdam. I live with my wife, son, and daughter close to the Jordaan.
At the end of 2017 I decided to quit my job, to rent a luxury boat and to do what I love best, cruising through the Amsterdam canals.
What started with one cruise grew into a small company with a dedicated team. In 2020 I had the opportunity to take over the workflow of—not just any boat, the Jonckvrouw, a 1928 saloon boat with a story.
Our canal cruises are informative, fun, and entertaining, sure to be the highlight of your visit. We cruise like a local in a small group (up to 12 guests). Rain or shine!
There are many boat companies in Amsterdam to choose from. Everything is fixed: One hour, one tour, one script. Here’s where we differ; our tours last 90 minutes, our guides are unscripted, our itineraries are flexible, and our tours are fun!
