Quick details

Cruise like a local Amsterdam

—explore the canals

Cruise like a local Amsterdam is an incredibly special, cosy Amsterdam canal cruise with drinks. You enter our boat as guests and leave as friends.

Just like the locals, we cruise in small groups with drinks and snacks, and good company! Okay, not everyone has a luxury boat. Lucky us!

We give a personable guided sightseeing tour with live stories. We like to share the things we see and admire in the city and urban life. Let your love for Amsterdam grow!

We cruise in the 1928 former Dutch government boat which was used by Presidents, Mayors, and the Dutch Royal family.

Our boat is 100% electric, super comfortable and has a toilet on board. When the weather is nice, we open the sunroof and sliding windows. When it rains, we stay dry.

Should it be a bit chilly we have a heating system and extra blankets to keep you warm.

See you on board!
Cheers Captain Dave
