the open boat canal cruise companies
Friendship offers canal tours in a relaxed atmosphere on four distinctive open boats. Each boat can take up to approximately 50 people. The location of Friendship stands out: their boat tours start and end in the Red Light District.
The Blue Sky Boat is owned by Blue Boat Company. This is a refurbished lifeboat that goes out several times a day during summer. The 75 minute tour starts and ends at their dock near Leidseplein, Museum Quarter and Vondelpark.
Those Damn Boat Guys are the most unconventional and slightly rebellious canal tour company. They offer an entertaining, humorous and relatively long (90 minutes) open boat tour that starts and ends near the Anne Frank House.
On a Small Boat Cruise by Lovers company you will be guided though the nicest canals on an open boat. It starts from the Anne Frank House, takes about one hour and includes part of the Red Light District.
On this open boat tour by Stromma the English speaking guide will take you on some of the smaller canals. The tours depart from Central Station and the Rijksmuseum.
