Daily Evening Cruise

During the month of December we will be offering exclusive canal boat tours in the evening on our salon boats. An evening cruise is a great way of seeing a different, calmer side to the city with lanterns adorning many arches and the city lights beautifully reflected in the water. During this period the 7th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival will also take place and we will cruise past many of the light sculptures placed in and along the canals.

An open boat may not be the obvious choice this winter but you will be greatly rewarded for your courage. Come and enjoy the unobstructed views of the romantically lit canals and illuminated artworks of the Amsterdam Light Festival in and around the canals. Our captain will welcome you on our open boat which has comfortable cushions and a toilet onboard. We will be serving Glühwein and hot chocolate to keep you warm while the captain takes you on an unforgettable experience.
