About Open Boat Tours
Experience Amsterdam from the water with an open sloop. From the boat you will have the best view of the picturesque capital. The captain will also act as your guide and has endless stories to tell about the places of interest in Amsterdam that you will pass by. Furthermore, because it operates on electricity, it is also sustainable.

I believe the tours start at 10 am and run until late in the night (maybe 9 pm). They leave every 30 mins from Dam pier 6. I would book tickets the night before for the time you want.
