Boat rental Amsterdam

Did you know that at Blue Boat you can also rent our boats for transfers? This means that our iconic blue boats can also be used as a transfer service;, if you want to transport a group from their hotel along the water to the Heineken Experience, for example. Of course you can arrange a bus for such a transfer, but let’s face it: a transfer by boat is a lot more fun in a city like Amsterdam!

Rent a boat for your transfer in Amsterdam

Do you want to make your stay in Amsterdam even more special? Or are you looking for a fun way for a large group to travel from place A to place B? Then Blue Boat Company may be able to help you. If you have to take a large bus from, let’s say a hotel to an attraction, there is a good chance that you will be stuck in traffic. And a bus is of course also a bit boring… Fortunately for you, we also offer another option: renting a canal cruise boat for your transfer! There is never a traffic jam on the canals, which means that the group can move from location to location very quick and easy.

Please contact us to discuss your boat rental. We would like to hear between which two locations you are looking for a transfer.

Rent a boat for a party

Would you like to rent a canal boat in Amsterdam for a party? Then Blue Boat can help! We rent out our well-known blue boats for all kinds of group arrangements. Want to see the beautiful 17th century houses along the iconic canals while toasting with your friends or family? Then rent a canal cruise from Blue Boat.

Boat rental with flexible interior

Six of our boats are our “party boats”, which are equipped with flexible interiors. This means that we can move all tables and chairs or even remove them completely from the boat. This makes it possible to add reception tables or a large table, among other things. 

Blue Boat has been a family business for decades with the aim of organizing the best canal cruises and most beautiful outings in Amsterdam for our customers. So you are not just a number to us; we’d love to discuss with you how we can help you organize a fantastic party.
