Day Canal Cruise

City Canal Cruise - Duration: 75 Min

Blue Boat Company is your guide to all types of city cruises! On our luxurious boats we take you on a tour of our beautiful city. 
The Amsterdam's canals as a new addition to UNESCO's World Heritage list has no secrets for us, and we love to share all its beauty with you. Our 75 minute City Canal Cruise showing all of the city highlights is simply the best way to do this.

Unique story
At Blue Boat Company, you will be accompanied on your cruise through "Mokum" (as the locals like to call it) by two very local guides: Ron & Nel. Married for over 40 years and living in Amsterdam for even longer, they are eager to share their love of the city with you! On their audio commentary filled with historical facts and stories, urban legends, humor and music, they take you back to the early days of the port of Amsterdam, as well as into the now of this vibrant city.

Rijks Museum Canal Cruise
Experience the Golden Century on the water and in the museum! Blue Boat Company and the Rijksmuseum proudly present this unique cruise that takes you back to the Golden days of the 17th century. During this cruise you pass by places that are all - one way or another - connected to works of art from the collection of the Rijksmuseum. Where did Rembrandt live? Where did he paint his famous painting "The Nightwatch"? And where did they hang criminals - quite common in those days? The unique audio commentary lets you experience all these stories! In the souvenir booklet that comes with the package deal, you can see the art works that are mentioned in the story. On board, you can choose between a Dutch and an English story through our Personal Audio System (German available in our free Guide App). After your cruise, you visit the art works at the Rijksmuseum.
