Kids Cruise

An adventure on the canals of Amsterdam

KIDS CRUISE "Wanted: Freshwater Pirates!"

An adventure on the canals of Amsterdam!

My name is Johnny the mouse. There’s not much that scares me. My friend Harold, the cat, is a different story... He wants to be a pirate, but he is afraid of water! I am trying to help him get over this fear, but I need some help. Can you help me?

The "Wanted: Freshwater Pirates" kids cruise is an audio tour for our smallest visitors. This interactive story comes with a booklet with games, pencils & a pair of real pirate-binoculars and is included in every childrens ticket. During the regular cruise, the kids listen to their own story (available in Dutch & English through our free Personal Audio System) and enjoy an adventure with our friends Harold & Johnny and hopefully become certified Freshwater Pirates!

Departure times

This audio story is available on every departure of our City Canal Cruise.
Summer season (March-October): Daily every half hour from 10:00-18:00

This exciting, interactive adventure is included in every children’s ticket (5-12 years) and includes an audio tour (available in Dutch & English), a log and a pair of binoculars.
It is available on every daytime departure at both locations.

TIP for the smallest pirates: We provide everyone with free earphones, but these usually do not fit the youngest pirates. So if you have your own headphones, bring them with you!
