Is a commercial cruise of Amsterdam’s canals not appealing enough and would you rather explore the intricate waterways by yourself? You can! Canal Motorboats Amsterdam rents out motorboats that they call whisper boats, as their engines hardly make any noise at all. The 5,5 meter long and 1,8 meter wide boats are spacious enough to fit up to 7 people comfortably. But the best bit is that you don’t need any experience with boats or even an official licence. The helpful staff will thoroughly explain how to steer the boat safely over the Amsterdam canals and then you’re ready to go.
Located only a 5 minute walk from Amsterdam’s central train station, you will be cruising the hot spots in no time at all. What are you waiting for? Get some supplies and have a snack and drinks on the water and experience Amsterdam like a local.
