About Us

—cruise different

Great Teamwork

We are a team of fully licensed captains with one thing in common; we are storytellers and love to share our passion for the city, the canals and Amsterdam’s’ Life in a lively way.

Our Vision

There are many boat companies in Amsterdam to choose from. With them everything is fixed; one hour, one tour, one script. Here we differ; we tour 90 minutes, our guide is non-scripted, our itineraries flexible and our tours are fun!

Our Mision

We want people to connect with the city like we do. Thats why we tell our own stories, share the things we admire and belief in. 

Captain Dave Amsterdam canal cruises

Captain Dave, born and raised in Amsterdam. He lives close to the Jordan area with his wife, son and daughter.

End 2017 he decided to quit his job, rent a luxury boat and start doing what he loves the most sailing on the Amsterdam Canals.

What started with one cruise, turned into a small company with a devoted team. In 2020 he had the opportunity to buy his own boat, not just any boat —The Royal Lady.  

Our boat trips are informative, fun, and entertaining and sure to be the highlight of your visit. We cruise like a local in a small group setting. Rain or shine!
