Iconic Venetian style in contemporary Amsterdam. Naturally with a civilized multi-lingual captain / host (m / f) who is dedicated to the unique experience of the guests. Ambolux Classic Ecoboat transports a maximum of three passengers. Personal and exclusive, with a glass of Veuve Clicquot Champagne and delicious snacks and bites always included in the price.

Adam’s Boats

Cruise the canals like a local with an Adam’s boat.  With these robust electrically powered boats you can discover Amsterdam in an entirely unique way. Discovering the maze of canals at your own pace in one of these sturdy aluminum boats is a great experience. This is not the typical tourist boat, but a boat to be seen on! These sloops are easy to drive and a license is not required. There are 10 Adam’s boats so if you want to go out with multiple boats, no problem. Book, sail and enjoy!
