Don’t miss out on the annual canal boat tour event! During the Amsterdam FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS (from December 1 to January 21, 2023), the city is illuminated by international light artists displaying their artwork throughout the city center.

Come and join us on this adventure. Get a first-class view and see the historic center of Amsterdam transforming into an open-air light art exhibition. All to be seen by boat.

The Festival of Light is one of the top 10 winter festivals in Europe
—The Guardian

We sail in a heated boat from 1928 with a silent electric motor. The ideal boat for exploring the canals of Amsterdam. The boat has heating, a toilet (a luxury), sunroof, sliding windows and outer deck. Want to sit outside, make sure you wear (warmer) clothes suitable for the weather.

See you soon on board!
Captain Dave Amsterdam
