The ideal mode of transport in Amsterdam
Has your group considered renting a boat for getting around in Amsterdam? With over 200 boarding locations, there is always one close to where you are staying or meeting up. Even with the slower, quieter pace, we tend to arrive at our destination quicker than a coach because there are no traffic (or lights) to worry about. And with up to 80 passengers per boat, we offer a similar capacity. And as a bonus, your guests will enjoy a relaxing canal cruise!

Or if you want to party into the night, why not book one of Blue Boat Company's six party vessels? Five of our fleet are equipped with wheelchair access and two powered with electric engines.

With an average standing height of 1.95 meters plus tables and chairs that can be moved or removed, our boats are unique in Amsterdam.
