Canal Cruises with Blue Boat Company
Blue Boat Company is partner for all types of city cruises! On our luxurious boats we take you on a tour of our beautiful city. This new addition to UNESCO's World Heritage list has no secrets for us, and we love to share all its beauty with you. And we think our 75 minute City Canal Cruise showing all the highlight is simply the best the way to do that!
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 & stories, urban legends, humor & music, they take you back to the early days of the port of Amsterdam, as well as into the now of this vibrant city!

Boat with open roof, outer deck & wheelchair acces
Blue Boat Company sails 365 days a year, whether rain or shine. In winter, we close the roof and turn on the central heating, and in summer we open the roofs to let the sun & a fresh breeze in, so it is always comfortable on board.

Reviews of our City Canal Cruise on Tripadvisor:
“This is the Better Canal Tour”
I got the I-Amsterdam card, which includes ONE tour on your choice of two canal tour boat companies. Last time I was in amsterdam, I took the other, since it was closer to the hotel in which I was staying. I was underwhelmed and almost skipped a canal trip this time. But, since I was staying near Leidseplein, I tried out the Blue Boat Company. Having now taken both, Blue Boat was BY FAR a better choice!
