Amazing experience
Jul 2021
Amazing to experience Amsterdam from the water in a beautiful and classy boat. A good combination of relaxation, great food + drinks and fantastic stories about Amsterdam from the knowledgable captain. Would certainly recommend.

Perfect Company Party
Jul 2021
I had high expectations for our trip and was not disappointed. We celebrated our company anniversary with a two hour tour including appetizers and drinks. From the beginning the staff was very friendly and accommodating to our many dietary requirements. I requested a full bar, and although in the end there was no liquor, there was no shortage of options for everyone. The captain was a true Amsterdammer full of character and he provided a fun and comfortable atmosphere. I will definitely cruise with Pure Boats again.

Pure Bots Cruise for 6 People
May 2021
The boat was beautiful. It was a very fun experience. The drink options were fabulous and the seating area was very comfy and well decorated. Lots of space to move around freely and sit comfortably. The electric engine is divine. Silently gliding along the water. What a way to view the city. Expertly driven by Captain James with a nice balance of interesting facts about the city but also leaving you to enjoy the time in the group. Would recommend highly!

Supertime in superboats
Mar 2020 • Family
The last two years, my husband, family and me enjoyed two excellent trips with Pure Boats. One was in the summer and the other was in march. The season didn't made any difference: comfortable noiseless electric boats, high end hospitality, quality standard beer and wine and last but not least, we visited beautiful historic spots by gliding without any noise through the canals; in other words we had a reel feel good experience. Thank you James and Geertje. Hope to meet you again soon and we wish you a succesfull afterCorona-restart.

A perfect way to see Amsterdam
Sep 2020
We had two hours of magic cruising around the canals of Amsterdam, under the professional and very personal command of the Pureboats captain, munching on snacks and taking (moderate) advantage of the free bar. A classy way to get the know Amsterdam without the risk of being run over by a cyclist in the streets! Thanks for a very nice arrangement! Pureboats even managed to get the weather right!
