Welcome to the perfect Canal Cruise Experience!Language guarantee!We strive to create a unique experience on our regular cruises (our City Canal Cruises, Evening Cruises and Blue Boat Dinner Cruise); all our boats are equipped with an extensive Personal Audio System that lets you select the language you prefer. On our City Canal Cruise we offer 17 languages choose from! We provide you with your own set of headphones, which are yours to keep. It also means you do not have to listen to any of the other languages, just to the one that you have selected. And because you only hear one language, we can tell you more!Blue Boat Company's fleet consists of luxurious party boats; six of our boats are fitted with wheelchair access en two are powered by electricity, using “green electricity” to make our contribution to cleaner air. All our boats have a glass roof that can be opened, an outside deck on the back (ideal for picture taking!)and in winter, we turn on our central heating!In summer, take our unique small open boat, the Blue Sky Boat, for a more intimate tour.And don't forget our unique 4 course a la carte dinner cruise, which combines a lovely meal, specially selected wines and the best views in one evening!

Did the Burger and Beer trip by a well known restaurant chain. Was good to see Amsterdam at night and lit up. Over-rated trip with the meals etc. should have just done a standard boat ride.

This company offers a range of canal cruise options throughout the day. We took the nighttime dinner cruise on a Saturday. They advise getting there 15 min before boarding which is a good idea because the boarding process was chaotic since another cruise was also...More

Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed

need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand

We didn't pre-book and just turned up at the booking office. The trip was reasonably full but no queues for the boat. I think that a lot will depend on the time of year/day that you want to travel. Even if you had to wait, I... More
