Boaty Rent a Boat Amsterdam
14:18 21 May 22
Great way to see the city! 4 hour tour was more than enough to do a big loop and see many of the sights for touring. We stopped at a Café along the way and moored to the side. Map made it easy to navigate. Just stay alert of bigger boats and guve them right of way and you won't have any issues! I would def recommend this company they were great!

Wonderful way to experience the city of Amsterdam! Great service - special shout out to Nootge for her pro-tips and hospitality. Would recommend to any of those looking for a good time on the canal

We had the most amazing time hiring a boat from Boaty for 3 people to celebrate my birthday. The booking was very easy and the location central and easy to find. I booked one day before and there were still available slots.The people were very kind, gave us information and directions on popular routes. The best value for money in Amsterdam by far, we enjoyed the full 3 hours, and had time to make stops and be relaxed. Highly recommended! There is nothing like getting around the city through the canals on a sunny day.Thank you!

Was super good fun! The boat was clean and well maintained. There are a few routes they propose and the one we took through the center was nice. The boats are electric so not super fast but you want to take it easy around the beautiful canals ;-)

Incredible. Cruising down the canals, 10/10.
13:35 12 May 22
Amazing experience on a good weather day. Definitely will go again through the canals of amsterdam with boaty.🙏

Boating throughout the canals with Boaty was a wonderful way to end our trip in Amsterdam. The crew was helpful in getting us started, and Roos was extremely accommodating when we had an issue with our reservation. Great value for a must-do activity in Amsterdam! Would do again!

We've used Boaty in previous years and the locations are great as it allows you to have a relaxing boat trip on the quieter areas of the canals as going from the centre can be chaotic. I also made my booking on the wrong day this time but the staff at Boaty were very helpful and went above and beyond to accommodate and offer us different days where they had availability which they didn't have to do. We'd definitely recommend them and will be using them again on future visits to Amsterdam

Goede prijs en sympathieke perfecte manier om Amsterdam op een andere manier te doorkruisen!(Translated by Google)Wonderful boaty sailing with the smartest skipper! Electric boats, good instructions.

If you're looking to hire a boat in Amsterdam this is the company to use. A lot cheaper than most and the experience was top class. We phoned to book as it was same day - customer service great and when we arrived we were met by Lars who was really attentive, he took time to answer questions and show us routes to take and made sure we were set to go. Really friendly and helpful. The boat itself was great and the 3 hours spent cruising the canals was the best experience we had in Amsterdam. Thanks again Lars, and thanks for the restaurant recommendations too 😀

We randomly chose to hire a boat from Boaty and we were so glad we did. The guy was super friendly, informative and welcoming. For 3 hours on the canals it was worth the money. So relaxed and because you go really slowly you get to take in Amsterdam properly. Highly recommended!!

Geweldige boottocht gehad door de amsterdamse grachten met boaty s we vielen in t ene avontuur na t andere en ondanks dat het weer niet optimaal was hebben we allemaal het erg naar ons zin gehad. Voor herhaling vatbaar!(Translated by Google)We had a great boat trip through the Amsterdam canals with boaty s we fell into one adventure after the other and even though the weather was not optimal we all had a great time.

Tot volgende keer!(Translated by Google)Basic boat but excellent service by Noah and Lars. All this for a competitive price, great location, handy map and instructions. See you next time!

Spencer was very nice. We had a really good time there.

(Translated by Google) The pier is a little off the beaten track on a quiet canal. We found that to be positive, as you first want to get used to it in peace and quiet (even if the boat isn't fast). We were still able to easily walk to Boaty from Vondelpark. The boats are clean, functional and robust. You get seat cushions, life jackets (if you want), instructions and a laminated map with possible routes. Since we had already explored the city center largely on foot, we decided on route 2, which we found very beautiful and which, in addition to the zoo and the university, leads past the large historic ship galleon, the fantastic NEMO museum and partly through the city center ( see website). It was our best experience in Amsterdam and the boats are really easy to drive. Also very cool for slightly older children and teenagers. However, the driver must officially be 18 years old. Tip from personal experience: take a pocket knife with you in case plastic gets into the propeller and blocks it.(Original)Die Anlegestelle liegt etwas abseits in einer ruhigen Gracht. Das empfanden wir als positiv, da man sich erst einmal ein bisschen in Ruhe einfahren will (auch wenn das Boot nicht schnell ist). Wir haben Boaty trotzdem locker per Fuß vom Vondelpark erreichen können. Die Boote sind sauber, zweckmäßig und robust. Man erhält Sitzkissen, Schwimmwesten (wer will), Einweisung und eine laminierte Karte mit möglichen Routen. Da wir die Innenstadt schon weitgehend per Fuß erkundend hatten, haben wir uns für Route 2 entschieden, die wir sehr schön fanden und die neben dem Zoo und der Uni an der großen historischen Schiffsgaleone, dem fantastischen NEMO-Museum und teilweise durch die Innenstadt vorbeiführt (siehe Webseite). Es war unser schönstes Erlebnis in Amsterdam und die Boote sind wirklich sehr einfach zu fahren. Für etwas größere Kinder und Jugendliche auch sehr cool. Allerdings muss der Fahrer offiziell 18 Jahre alt sein. Tipp aus eigener Erfahrung: Taschenmesser mitnehmen, falls Plastik in den Propeller kommt und diesen blockiert.

(Translated by Google) Very funny thing. We spent three hours by boat in the various canals and on the Amstel. A fine ride.(Original)Sehr witzige Sache. Drei Stunden waren wir mit dem Boot in den verschiedenen Grachten und auf der Amstel unterwegs. Eine prima Fahrt.

This has to be the best thing I’ve done in Amsterdam !!!Having been to Amsterdam a few times now, we saw a Boaty boat go past us and after a quick Google I found them online. Called up in the morning and booked a boat for the same day and then the rest was history.Great customer service. Great price. Great thing to do in Amsterdam.I will be recommending this to everyone.

Leuke kleine gebruiksvriendelijk bootjes die bijna zichzelf varen. Zelfs met weinig ervaring kun je heerlijk genieten van de Amsterdamse grachten tegen een schappelijke prijs.(Translated by Google)Nice little user-friendly boats that almost sail themselves. Even with little experience you can enjoy the Amsterdam canals for a reasonable price.

My friends and I rented a boat with Boaty and it was perfect! They showed us how to use the boats, gave us maps with recommended trails through the canals, and answered all of our questions. Everyone was extremely kind; I'm especially grateful because after my necklace went missing during the boat trip and I thought it was lost forever, someone found it on the dock and Jan biked it to where I'm staying!!! Thank you Jan, and thank you Boaty!

(Translated by Google) Going around the canals with the private boat is simply wonderful! Every time I go to Amsterdam I book at Boaty and I lose myself in the magic of this city! I have tried various rentals over time but in town they are the best and I will never change again! Never had any problems, neither with reservations nor with the means. Livia and Jill, the girls present at the rental are really fantastic, super kind and available for any explanation or suggestion, plus they gave me a super welcome with a lot of welcome back since it was the fourth time I booked with them. I highly recommend trying this experience at least once!(Original)Girare per i canali con la barca privata è semplicemente meraviglioso! Ogni volta che vado ad Amsterdam prenoto presso Boaty e mi perdo nella magia di questa città! Ho provato vari noleggi nel tempo ma in città sono i migliori e non cambierò mai più! Mai avuto problemi, ne con le prenotazioni ne con i mezzi. Livia e Jill , le ragazze presenti al noleggio sono davvero fantastiche, super gentili e disponibili per qualsiasi spiegazione o suggerimento, in più mi hanno fatto una super accoglienza con tanto di bentornato visto che era la quarta volta che prenotavo con loro. Consiglio vivamente di provare almeno una volta questa esperienza!

Top bootje! Makkelijk te bedienen en ruim. Boaty heeft een super centrale locatie en is makkelijk bereikbaar. Bootje is helemaal uitgerust inclusief kaart. De plek waar je opstapt is heel leuk en vanaf daar is het heel gezellig varen, nergens heb je een beter uitzicht op Amsterdam! Daarbij zijn de werknemers en eigenaar heel aardig en behulpzaam :)(Translated by Google)Great boat! Easy to operate and spacious. Boaty has a super central location and is easily accessible. Boat is fully equipped including map. The place where you board is very nice and from there it is very pleasant sailing, nowhere do you have a better view of Amsterdam! In addition, the employees and owner are very nice and helpful :)

Ich kann Boaty wirklich nur weiterempfehlen! Eine super liebe Mitarbeiterin hat uns am 11.9 bestens in das Boot eingewiesen und uns die möglichen Touren empfohlen. Das Gedamtpaket stimmt einfach. Wir hatten 3 Stunden unsere Privatsphäre auf dem Wasser in einer so belebten Stadt und konnten gleichzeitig Sightseeing machen. Der Preis ist allemal gerechtfertigt - besonders cool ist auch, dass Verpflegung mitgenommen werden darf 🚤💙I can only recommend Boaty! A really nice colleague gave us a good introduction to the boat on the 11th September and recommended the possible tours to us. The whole trip was amazing. We had 3 hours of privacy on the water in such a busy city while sightseeing at the same time. The price is definitely justified - it is also particularly cool that you can take food with you 🚤💙
17:13 20 May 20
Really loved our trip with this electric boat. Book one with a roof if its a hot day! Friendly staff and very good map . Can definite recommend.
09:08 20 May 20
it's a great place to rent a boat and see the sights from the water. Also to explore the architecture of the suburbs. You can stop off and pick up some food and drink from places like Hanneke's Boom or the Waterkant. And, by the way, they are the least expensive boot rental company.
18:08 24 Apr 20
Zer vriendelijke ontvangst. Hele leuke ochtend gehad op het stille water in Amsterdam. Bijzonder om tijdens deze Corona-tijd de route door het centrum te varen.
19:25 18 Mar 19
Absolutely the best way to see Amsterdam. You gain an entire new perspective of this beautiful city.To glide past the Anne Frank house and the Museums is amazing 😉
17:27 12 Feb 19
I've probably recommended Boaty over 100 times to friends, family, and complete strangers - really, anyone who will listen. The boat trip we took a few years ago (my mom, my boyfriend, and me) was charming and fun and for sure the highlight of that particular visit to Europe. The price for that experience seemed to be a reasonable value, even split among just three people. I loved the thrill of determining our own path (using the Boaty map), figuring how to navigate the boat, and exploring at our own, slow pace with conversations instead of listening to commentary. We had some funny moments and bonded over our (my) minor mishaps (two very slow 360s on the Amstel) 😎

we had a great time on the canals today for a few hours. Really enjoyed it. Really good information provided about safety and the best routes to take, would definitely recommend. thanks for a great day out Boaty 🙂

We had a great time on our boaty last month with family over, I have just booked our next one for July!!Much cheaper then other rental companies in Amsterdam! Slightly smaller boat but easier to steer. Can't wait for our next adventure on the canals! Best way to see the city, we even got a sneaky view of the giraffes and elephants� at artis �

Had a Fantastic time renting a boat from Boaty tonight. Guido did a great job of explaining all the rules and giving us the best tips on where to go and what to see. The rates were very reasonable, the boat worked great, was perfect for our family of four. Very relaxing, brought drinks and snacks - highly recommend Boaty - Thanks again Guido, we had a wonderful time. :-)
