Amsterdam canal cruise during daytime

Canal cruise boats
The canal cruise boats in Amsterdam are large and have many windows. It is possible to open their roofs so in good weather you can enjoy a cabriolet cruise. And in bad weather, which does happen often in Amsterdam, you are warm and dry.
Each seat is equipped with an audio commentary of the route in many languages. You will receive headphones.
The boats are okay and functional for the cruise. But it does resemble a mass transport product. If you would like a more deluxe experience then look at our deluxe cruises on the main canal cruise page.
