We had an absolutely incredible time! At first it took a bit of getting used to, but once we got the hang of it, it was great! Such helpful men taught us what to do, and showed us where to go before we set off!...More

Great service from these guys - and the electric boats are easy to use. Also - much cheaper than lots of the other rentals out there.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
