Blue Sky Boat: our gorgeous open boat in Amsterdam
Open boat Amsterdam– An intimate introduction to Amsterdam.
This summer you can experience an intimate, personal cruising experience with our Blue Sky Boat. Because this is an open boat, you can fully enjoy the views and the beautiful weather. And with this small open boat, we can show you places in the city that are inaccessible to larger tour boats. The captain of your open boat in Amsterdam can tell you everything about the city and is happy to answer all your questions. Of course you can also take the most beautiful pictures of the canals of Amsterdam and the buildings of the Golden Age during your open boat tour. Looking for a very special tour in Amsterdam? Our open boat in Amsterdam is so much fun!
What can I expect from Blue Boat’s open boat in Amsterdam tour?
A tour with an open boat in Amsterdam is a very pleasant and personal experience. After all, there are only a limited number of people on the boat. During your open boat tour in Amsterdam, the captain tells you all about the history of the city and shows you the prettiest houses and canals. And because our open boat is so much smaller than a normal canal cruise boat, we can sail through the smallest canals. This way, you also see lesser-known parts of the city during your open boat tour in Amsterdam.
Just imagine: the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and you are cruising through the water, taking pictures of the beauty of Amsterdam to your heart’s content. Suddenly, you see the stately Westerkerk appear and next to it the Anne Frank House, you see Amsterdammers cycling along the canals and you quickly take a photo. All of this is possible during your tour with an open boat in Amsterdam. Buy your ticket(s) now and sail with us along the most beautiful spots of the city.
Tip for sunny days: while it is absolutely wonderful to sail with the Blue Sky Boat on a beautiful day, don’t forget to bring your sunscreen (and maybe a hat) to enjoy the sunshine. It usually feels a bit colder on the water, but the sun can also be very treacherous.
What is included in the open boat tour in Amsterdam?
If you book our Blue Sky Boat, this is included:
- Amsterdam canal cruise of 75 minutes
- Personal explanation of your captain
Please note that drinks and/or snacks are not included in this sightseeing tour, but are available at the ticket office before departure.

Where do I board the Blue Sky Boat cruise?
Your open boat tour in Amsterdam departs from the Blue Boat dock at Stadhouderskade 501, opposite the Hard Rock Cafe.
Please note that Blue Boat has two docks. If you accidentally end up at the Stadhouderskade 550 (at the Heineken Experience), you’ll have to walk about 750 meters towards the Vondelpark entrance. On your right, you will see our dock opposite the Hard Rock Cafe.
Is a tour with Blue Boat’s Sky Boat also fun for children?
Our canal cruises are fun for young and old! The open boat is super fun because nothing’s blocking your view, which kids love. Other than our open boat, we also recommend our Kids Cruise. This is a cruise with an audio story for kids, so they don’t get bored.
Is the open boat wheelchair accessible?
Unfortunately, our open boat is not wheelchair accessible, but our regular cruises like the City Canal Cruise are. You’ll find more information about how to book a wheelchair accessible cruise on the product page.
Which other cruises does Blue Boat Company offer?
You can also discover the beautiful city of Amsterdam during one of our other canal cruises in Amsterdam. We offer evening canal cruises, a special cruise for children (our Kids Cruise) and of course our famous City Canal Cruise. We’ve been offering canal tours for years, so every Blue Boat tour is a winner!
Would you rather rent a private boat? That’s also possible. Take a look at our group arrangements. You can for instance book a Dinner Cruise or a Buffet Cruise. A private cruise is wonderful to celebrate with friends and family.
