The ferries remain free and a great way to see Amsterdam and it's water from a different angle. You could stay on all day I guess as no-one checks that you have to get off.

Easy accessible ferry to A'DAM Tower. Queue in the given lane makes it easy to get on and off. Only takes about 5 minutes. Be careful of the many bicycles. There is cover in case it's raining.
