I've rented at Canal Motor Boats at least 8 times and always return. Friendly owners, no nonsense, good and reliable boats and a perfect location to start a day on the canals. Pack your wine and sandwiches and enjoy!

We rented a boat here twice - once with adult friends at the beginning of our trip and then later when kids arrived. Both groups found it fun and easy. The boats are simple to drive and can get through the small side arches of the bridges, making it easy to stay out of the way of the big tour... More

We rent a boat for 4 with canalmotorboat. The guy was very nice to us despise our late arrival. Very nice outing to have an overview of the city. We recommend to wear warm clothes (Amsterdam and its canals are very windy) and to bring a pair of scissors and a knife with you in case a (or many) plastic... More

We rented a boat for 4 hours this weekend to enjoy the nice weather in the canals of amsterdam. The experience was just great starting from the time we called for reservation until the end. The people running the place are extremely friendly and helpful. They explained the boat and where it is best to go in detail. We lost... More

This was a great experience! after nearly 6 years living in Amsterdam, we decided to finally rent a boat and have a tour around the city with some friends. We booked this company and couldn't be happier! The boat was nicely equipped and easy to handle, however the customer service was AMAZING. From the start we were amazed of how... More

I lived in Amsterdam for a few months in 2011 and always envied those with boats to wander the canals. Canal Motorboats gives you the opportunity to see the city like those who live in and love it. The owner, Ron, was extremely pleasant, funny, informative, and laid back. He made us feel welcome and gave us great instructions on... More

Five of us rented one of these boats for an hour for 50 euros so great value - we did not pre-book and just turned up and got a boat straight away with no issues. It is a great way to see the sights and we managed to make it down past Anne Franks house and back in the hour.... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
