At Boats4rent you can rent a small open canal boat to sail yourself. From the dock at the lively Westerpark (near the Jordaan area) it is only a short drive to the most beautiful parts of the city centre. The boats are decent but rather basic and the rates are the best in town, starting at just €79 for a three hour canal tour. Before departure you will receive a good personal instruction and a clear map with the best canal routes. Popular with locals and tourists, so make sure you reserve your boat in advance.
