KINboat canal cruises Amsterdam

KINboat is a fairly new boating company in Amsterdam. It operates small vessels compared to the classical boating companies. This results in a more intimate, cosy setting. You can book private canal tours on your very own boat, or hop on one of the public cruises. Most boats operated by KINboat are electric powered and thus environmentally friendly. The boats barely make any noise, so you can enjoy the pretty Amsterdam surroundings to the fullest. Renting a boat with KINboat always comes with a captain, this way you can enjoy the ride without having to concentrate on the busy Amsterdam waterways. You can sit back and enjoy a drink.

Cruise Like a Local – by KINboat

A canal cruise is an absolute must-do in Amsterdam! The Cruise Like a Local cruise by KINboat is a great choice for anyone who wants to avoid the big canal boats.

In this boat, you’ll enjoy the comfort of being able to sit inside in case of bad weather. However, if the weather allows is you can also go outside to the front or rear deck to have the most magnificent views and shoot the best possible pictures.

  • 1 hour of sailing on the Amsterdam Canals in a comfortable boat with shelter from wind & rain
