OPEN BOAT CRUISES – AMSTERDAM LIGHT FESTIVAL
Open boat cruises – guided by your captain!
From November 29th to January 20th the 7th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival will be taking over the city. During this light art festival more than 30 art works from (inter)national artists will light up the Amsterdam city center. On our small, open boats you can enjoy unobstructed views of the artworks. You captain is your guide on this cruise and will tell you all about the sighst and the light art you pass.
This year Blue Boat is the proud sponsor of “Light a wish”by OGE group. This artwork consist of a large amount of dandelion seeds floating above the canal. All around the world, these represent wishes.
This winter, Blue Boat want to make wishes some trough, so we partnered up with the Make-A-Wish foundation. We donate € 0,25 for every sold Amsterdam Light Festival ticket, so they can make wishes of children with a criticall illness come true.

What happens when the weather takes a trun for the worst?
An open boat cruise means you are as close as possible to the city and the art installations. However, you are also exposed to the elements, and we understand this might not be to comfortable in a thunder storm or – you never know in Holland! – snow or hail.
In case the weather is not suitable for an open boat cruise*, we will book you on one of the covered boats.
If this is not possible, or if you do not want this, we will give you a full refund.
*This decision is made by the managing director of Blue Boat
The 2018-2019 theme
The theme that has inspired this years artist is ‘The Medium is the Message’. The idea behind this famous expression by Canadian scientist Marshall McLuhan is simpel: not only the message itself, but the way we send the message is important. And light place an important role as messanger in a lot of ways.
