Welcome to the perfect Canal Cruise Experience!Language guarantee!We strive to create a unique experience on our regular cruises (our City Canal Cruises, Evening Cruises and Blue Boat Dinner Cruise); all our boats are equipped with an extensive Personal Audio System that lets you select the language you prefer. On our City Canal Cruise we offer 17 languages choose from! We provide you with your own set of headphones, which are yours to keep. It also means you do not have to listen to any of the other languages, just to the one that you have selected. And because you only hear one language, we can tell you more!Blue Boat Company's fleet consists of luxurious party boats; six of our boats are fitted with wheelchair access en two are powered by electricity, using “green electricity” to make our contribution to cleaner air. All our boats have a glass roof that can be opened, an outside deck on the back (ideal for picture taking!)and in winter, we turn on our central heating!In summer, take our unique small open boat, the Blue Sky Boat, for a more intimate tour.And don't forget our unique 4 course a la carte dinner cruise, which combines a lovely meal, specially selected wines and the best views in one evening!

Amazing tour around Amsterdam. Comfy seats with tables. The information through the earphones pieces are very historical and tell you all kinds of different information about the different parts of Amsterdam. I love Ron's voice. But a bit repetitive. Highly recommend

Warning: avoid at all costs! As simple as that The worst burger I had ever had in my life. Dry as hell. Not to mention the hard nachos and the boiled cold (instead of fried) potatoes. We were almost alone on the boat. So boring.......More

Took a Amsterdam history tour on blue boat .. was very plain and not so exciting. Boat passes through many places but not really much understandable. No food or drinks on offer on board.

Had so much fun! The tour was 2 hours long with a clear explanation about Amsterdam. It’s definitely worth going.

We decided to go on a canal trip on one of the most blisteringly hot days of August, so the boat was full of like-minded people, all of us hoping for a bit of breeze! The boats are essentially floating greenhouses so not the most...More

After disembarking from a cruise ship, we had several hours to kill before we could check into our hotel. So, we took this canal cruise. It was very informative and provides views of the city that you cannot get from any other vantage point. If...More
