The best way to see Amsterdam – a city with 165 canals and over 1,500 bridges – is from the water.

The ultimate experience is to have a qualified captain of The Amsterdam Boat Company show you Amsterdam from the canals. A captain who knows the city’s most beautiful spots and teaches you the rules of the water and how to navigate a motor boat on the Amsterdam canals.

Depending on the package you choose, we will go sightseeing past the Rijksmuseum, the Anne Frank House, Westertoren Tower, the Shipping Museum, Heineken Experience, Artis Zoo, Schreierstoren tower, Montelbaanstoren tower, the VOC’s flagship Batavia, the red-light district, the Jordaan neighbourhood, Zaanse Schans and many other museums and sights.

Learning how to manoevre a motor boat on the canal in Amsterdam!

You will have fun while learning how to manoeuvre a motor boat on Amsterdam’s beautiful canals. You will also learn how to save a drowning person, the right-of-way rules and other important rules on the water.

We guarantee you will enjoy our special boat tour through the Amsterdam canals. Not only will you see a good deal of the city; you will also learn a lot. If you master the material, you will receive a certificate and will be given the title of ‘Captain of the Amsterdam Canals’.
