Semi-open Boat Cruise in Amsterdam

Our brand new type of cruise boat offers you the comfort of a large canal cruise boat. When the weather is fine, the partially open roof will allow you to enjoy an open boat experience. In the event that the weather is not so favorable however, the boat can be comfortably closed, still ensuring a spectacular view. The boats run on solar energy and are completely silent. During the cruise we offer an audio commentary in 19 languages.

When you take the Semi-open Boat Cruise you will follow the traditional route through the city. Ride along the Amstel river and the historic canal belt and see iconic boat houses, picturesque churches, 17th-century houses, iconic bridges and a hustling and bustling city that shows its true magic when you experience it from the water.
