What you'll do

Unfortunately we are closed because of the corona measures until 14th of January .

For only a limited period of time (December and January), you can experience an amazing wonder of Light Art installations by boat. The artworks are specially designed for the Amsterdam Light Festival. During our experience you will see a big part of these artworks and installations.

Our beautiful and safe electric boats are cozy, exclusive and comfortable.
With a boat cover and large windows between warm blankets and comfy pillows, you have nothing to worry about. We will sail under, next and even over some of the artworks. We will cruise the east part of Amsterdam which is designated as the Festive area. The tour is appr. 70 min. where drinks and snacks are all inclusive.

The boats are open which will give you the true feeling of being one with the artworks, but can be closed as it can be very cold or rainy this time of year. Blankets are there to keep you comfy and we serve wine, beer, soft drinks, Gluhwein (mulled wine), tea and coffee to keep the inner you warm.
The only thing we need from our guests is to sit back, see art, enjoy each others company, share stories and meet other people from all over the world.
Doesn't that all sound GEZELLIG?

We enter the eastern part by passing University Island, Artis zoo and Entrepotdok with It’s impressive warehouses. Then Nemo, Maritime Museum with the famous VOC replica.

    This experience is beautiful on its own but this experience was made unforgettable by the staff on the boat! Due to restrictions of everything non essential shutting at 5 we had our tour at 3:30 which can effect the experience due to the light but this team had changed their route so installations we couldn’t see at the beginning we looped round and saw at the end. They had thought of each way to make the experience as amazing as I’m sure it was before covid.

    The boattrip through the canal was a very nice experience, especially because of all the inside information they gave us. Everything was well organised and they provided us with a lot of information, and made sure we had something enough to drink! Very comfortable! I can recommend this trip with these tourguides to everybody!!

    This was amazing. Staff were so friendly and told us so many interesting facts about the city. If you have the chance to do this, I would.

    An awesome experience! A great way to see and learn more about the city. All staff members were very nice and friendly. Very cool also that the price included snacks and drinks. Would definitely recommend!😊

    A great trip. We were entertained throughout the tour. Win beer and snacks were provided. The crew was amazing and very, very accommodating, they tried to show the lights as best they could, but due to the 5:00 curfew the light show itself was a bit lackluster. But the crew made up for that in pure entertainment. Were we in Amsterdam again we would repeat the experience.

    Usually not one for the “tourist gimmicks” but this was truly a great experience. The staff was excellent—knowledgable, quirky, and friendly; the boat and drinks were great; the dock was easy to find. Would absolutely do it again, and our local Amsterdam friend agreed.
