Kooij is a family business and nearly a century old. It is the oldest canal cruise company in Amsterdam. And so it shows, in a positive sense. Kooij has its own neat and very central location (between Dam Square and Munt Tower) and more classical boats than its competitors.
The Blue Boat Company offers a wide range of canal cruises in its clear blue boats. They also organize the Hard Rock Cruise. Their location is close to the popular Leidseplein, the Museum Quarter and the Vondelpark.
Stromma offers a wide selection of traditional canal cruises in terms of locations and departure times. They also sell other types of canal tours, bus tours and combination tickets for boat and bus tours.
‘Amsterdam Canal Cruises’ is part of the Blue Boat Company and has a similar product range. It stands out with a Kids Cruise and its particular location: directly in front of the Heineken Experience.
Rederij Plas belongs to the Kooij company and offers the cheapest traditional canal cruise from its dock close to Central Station. In the evening there are more expensive two-hour trips with drinks and snacks on board.
