Owner description: Step aboard our classy, electric canal cruiser and experience the Amsterdam canals as if aboard your own private boat. We strive to keep our cruises as local and laidback as possible; while our highly experienced captain guides you through the enchanting waterways, sit back and enjoy our extensive on-board bar, which is always stocked with seasonal craft beers from various Amsterdam breweries, hand-picked organic wines, soft drinks, juices and local spirits. And for snacks, we work together with various local companies to give you the true taste of Amsterdam. Allow us to make your cruise with Pure Boats the highlight of your stay! You can choose to have the boat to yourselves with a private and personalised cruise, or reserve our 2-hour all-inclusive experience, which is shared with a small group (up to 10 guests) Want to join us for a cruise?

We had an absolut fantastic time on the boat with James & Geertje. The weather was nice and mild and the traditional Dutch snacks was an absolute treat - and the fact that we were only 6 guests on board made the experience even more exclusive. If you want something different and personal, go with James and Geertje

If you'd like to enjoy a good, personalized, and fun tour, James and Greetje are perfect. The boat was fully equipped, they were waiting for us with typical delicious food and different kinds of drinks. Even though it was freezing outside it was warm inside the boat. Not only were they kind, but also thoughtful, we were with a two-year-old girl and the boat was perfectly safe for her to enjoy the tour as well. We warmly recommend it.

Nice leisurely way to cruise the canals. Way better than those large cruise boats. James and Geertje went out of their way to make the evening cruise special for one of your party who was celebrating her birthday. Snacks and beverages were super and fellow guests on the cruise were fun too. Highly recommended. Watch for their 3 new boats that will be on the water this year!

My wife and I had the best experience on this trip! Unlike the big city canal tours, this was small, intimate and super personalized! They knew it was someone’s birthday and our honeymoon and celebrated by having a surprise bottle of champagne for everyone. It was super cool to see some sights we didn’t get to see by just walking around and we learned some facts and history we never knew before. It was by far the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam and we highly recommend it to anyone visiting! You won’t be disappointed.

This boat tour definitely made my trip in Amsterdam! Both James and Geertje are really nice and welcoming. They offered some organic wine, local beers, and crackers. Everyone on the tour was fun to talk to and laid back. I was traveling by myself so I thought it'd be a great way to meet people, and I was not wrong! I actually ended up hanging out with two other travelers afterwards from the tour! So if you are traveling alone, DO THIS!!!!!

This is not a normal boat tour around the city because you actually talk to the people around you and have a great time doing it! I LOVED the experience and will definitely be back if i am ever in Amsterdam again! Thank you James and Geertje for such a memorable trip!!!
