Evening Cruise

Following the recent developments regarding COVID-19, we regret to inform you that we’ll stop running all of our canal cruises until 31 May 2021. Read more about what this means for you on this page.

Our Evening Cruise is a 90 minute night cruise that introduces you to the unique vibe of Amsterdam by night. Thousands of lights highlight the hundreds of bridges and the iconic buildings alongside the canals.

Our waiter welcomes you on board our comfortable, luxurious boat. Order a nice cold drink and take your pick from one of 21 available languages in our Personal Audio System. Through earphones our audio guide will guide you through Amsterdam and tell you all about its history, how it flourished and what is happening right now.
Or just sit back and enjoy the views rolling by your window as night falls over Amsterdam.

Please note: we request our visitors to book their ticket online in advance to avoid crowds at the cash registers. We don’t offer any bar service on board for the time being. Drinks and snacks can be purchased in the ticket office before your cruise. 

Please note

If there’s a wheelchair amongst your company, it is necessary to make a reservation beforehand. This will ensure that you’ll be on a boat that is wheelchair accessible. We have a priority boarding for wheelchair users, so we kindly request you to be present at least 15 minutes in advance.

Please contact our reservations department to make a reservation. They are available on weekdays from 09:00 to 17:00 via + 31 20 679 1370 or by e-mail at

    What sets this evening cruise apart, is that it will take you through parts of the famous red-light district daytime cruises can not visit. Disembarking after 90 minutes, you will have seen a little of everything our wonderful capital has to offer.

    On board you can use our Personal Audio System (of our free Guide app!) to listen to audio commentary in one of the available 21 languages, or quietly enjoy the views of Amsterdam by night.

    Drinks on board

    Drinks can be ordered with the waiter and have to be paid for bij debit- or creditcard. Unfortunately, we do not except cash payments on board.

    Please note that during the Amsterdam Light Festival there are NO Evening cruises! Instead we run regular Amsterdam Light Festival Cruises.
