Amsterdam's picturesque canals are one of the city's most popular attractions. One of the best ways to see the city is from the water. Take a canal cruise or rent a boat and explore the waters at your own leisure.
It's quite simple to rent a boat in Amsterdam. A special license is only necessary for boats longer than 15 metres or capable of speeds faster than 20 kph. Even hiring larger yachts is very straight-forward. You can also hire a boat with its own captain and full crew - a great suggestion for celebrations, parties or corporate events.
There are numerous locations that rent boats, and plenty of options to choose from. Browse the list below for a few recommendations.
