Welcome at the Blue Boat Company!

Our luxurious boats are ready to guide you through Amsterdam’s many canals. Our canals have been awarded UNESCO’s World Heritage status and taking this 75-minute City Canal Cruise will reveal why. Passing all of the city’s highlights, this is simply the most relaxing and fun way to see the city.

Our boats sail 365 days a year. In summer we open our roofs so you can enjoy the sun and a little breeze goes through the boat – in winter we turn on the central heating for you. Or take our Evening Cruise and explore Amsterdam by night.

Our docks (and most of our boats) are accessible to wheelchairs so everybody can come and enjoy a cruise with us.

Through our Personal Audio System on board you can listen to an audio story, which is available in 20 languages.

Besides these 20 languages, we also offer themed stories for you to listen to.
For all our little visitors (5-12 years) we have our “Wanted: Freshwater pirates” Kids Cruise. While the parents listen to their choice of audio, our friends Harold & Johnny take the kids on an adventure through the canals! Locate the animals on the canal houses with your freshwater binoculars, design a ship house for Harold and become a certified Freshwater pirate! (includes audio, binoculars & log book )

If you are looking for a cultural experience or are interested in the city’s history, the Rijksmuseum cruise is for you! This audio story take you to Amsterdam in the Golden Century and links art works from the Rijksmuseum to the locations you see outside.
Or enjoy the world of Hip and happening fashion brands, movie scenes, international movie stars & artists and their favorite hotspots in the city with our Starstudded Amsterdam Cruise audio tour (guide app only).

More of a foodie? Of course we have a cruise for you too! Hop onto our Blue Boat Dinner Cruise for a delicious four course dinner served for dinner with a view!
