Established in 1612, the Lord’s Canal (Herengracht) is one of three major canals in the center of Amsterdam. With its beautiful Golden Bend section, stately mansions, and inner gardens, it has long been one of the snazziest places to live in the city. To this day many of the Dutch capital’s fanciest abodes are located along this canal.

Amsterdam Canal Cruise Like a Local

Amsterdam Canal Cruise Like a Local

We cruise like a local: you enter as a guest and leave as a friend. Sit, enjoy, and relax! Where most boat companies like to stay on a fixed route and give a standard lecture, we like to be guided by the day and group. The captain is your host and guide in one and will make sure you have a fun time. After this boat trip you will understand the city even better. We sail in an incredible special boat (if I may put it that way); At the end of 2020, I had the opportunity to buy the former government boat from 1928, which was used by heads of state, mayors, and our own Dutch royal family. The boat is fully electric has sliding windows, a sunroof, an open aft deck; heating and toilet on board (a luxury!). It is perfectly equipped for the Dutch weather, which can be very changeable. In short: the best boat to discover the Amsterdam canals. Jump on it and let your love for Amsterdam grow. Captain Dave Amsterdam
