About
At Hey Captain we do Social Sailing, where you meet new people and explore Copenhagen harbor. We started as friends on a boat and this is the atmosphere we want to deliver to our guests. It's a talk and a dialogue more than your standard classical tour. During the tour your captain will show you our favorite sights in the harbor. There is plenty of time to ask questions and we hope you want to engage in a conversation about life in Copenhagen. Our ambition is to give you a sense of the city more than an overload of historical facts. The route is not 100% standardized as we want to try to accommodate specific wishes of the group and special events in the harbor. The 2-hour Hidden Gems Tour will take you off the beaten track from the standard canal tour routes in the inner town, exploring the upcoming residential areas of either the South or North harbor. We hope to see you on board and that you will embrace our concept of Social Sailing. The Hey Captain Team

Did the one hour landmarks tour. Our only regret was not being able to do the two hour hidden gems tour.

All the staff were excellent; friendly, chatty, informative and the boat was very comfortable with blankets provided, and beers in the coolbox. The social element of the tour was very enjoyable too, so especially good if you enjoy talking to people.

We were very pleased to have done this rather than one of the big bus-style boats which looked very busy! Our boat only held about 12 people so was much more personal.

What a lovely way to see the city,in fact this one-hour boat tour was one of the nicest things I did in Copenhagen.What makes this boat trip special is that it's a very small group and we all sat comfortably around chatting and interacting with our friendly,knowledgable captain Olivia while taking in some interesting and beautiful sights.Don't miss it !!

Excellent 1 hour tour by a very knowledgeable guide. Showed us all the main sites in Copenhagen and was able to answer any questions from the guests onboard.
This is a tour designed for a small number of guests and is slightly more expensive than the bigger boats on the canal…..worth every krone!

We were a group of 12 people out for a tour on the water to celebrate a soon-to-be-bride, but none of us will probably use Hey Captain again. Our departure was almost 30 minutes delayed which messed up our schedule for the day. We could have lived with this if it wasn’t for the very unfriendly and rude manager. From the beginning it was unclear to us whether or not we could bring our own drinks on board since we were told on the phone that this was a possibility, but when we arrived it was apparently not allowed due to the size of our group which we found very strange and unclear. Only if we purchased expensive bottles of alcohol in their own bar were we allowed any drinks on board. The Manager made a scene in front of the entire group, including the person that we were celebrating which killed the mood. The concept is supposed to be about social sailing and having a cosy time, but these values didn’t shine through at all in this behavior and how the situation was handled. Very unprofessional and such a shame as the captain of the boat was actually a nice person.

Hi Viktoria. First of all, our deep apologies for being 30 min. delayed. We always strive to keep our agreed times, so this is of course not okay. In regards to the confusion about drinks, we feel we have been very clear in our communication. When you book, it clearly states that you are not allowed to bring your own alcohol. We sent you 3 emails in the week leading up to your tour, reiterating this point very clearly. We recieved no response from you, and hence also tried to call and text you days in advance of your tour to clarify - again with no reaction from you. Our alcohol policy is due to restrictions in the alcohol license we have and for safety reasons. Our concept is about social sailing, but we never compromise on alcohol policy and safety. Best regards Joel

We were part of a great group of friends on a Rick Steves's Tour and had one afternoon to ourselves. We chose the Harbor and Outer Island tour of "Hey Captain" and were totally satisfied. We so enjoyed the trip out to the artificial island used as a fort by the Danes and then by the Nazi's in WWII called Trekroner. It's inner harbor is now a popular boat dock and swimming area. The Fort itself is really interesting, with many parts in almost pristine condition...even showing a WWII German map of Denmark on the wall.

It's said the island was originally made by the Danes sinking twelve tall ships to keep out the Swedes. Cool! We then cruised the harbor and port facilities and saw the tail end of the Little Mermaid. All-in-all a wonderful time and we highly recommend it!

Highlight if our weekend. Captain was funny approachable and made everyone at ease. Learned interesting facts as well as wonderful way to see the city. My 12 yr old son got to steer the boat - it made his day and memory of Copenhagen unforgettable.

We took the 2-hour tour. There were 8 people our boat and everyone was very nice. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. This tour is not great for those with mobility issues. My daughter was recovering from surgery and was hoping to tour some of the canals in the city. We spent a lot of time on an historic deserted military base - the views were beautiful!

We absolutely loved our one-hour canal cruise! It was so relaxed and friendly. The guide (Mattio - not sure how to spell his name) did a great job - just the right amount of sharing information and letting us ask questions. We had 9 people in our group, and had great conversation among us. The day was beautiful, and getting the perspective of Copenhagen from the water was totally different than just walking around the town. I highly recommend this cruise.

We have taken many of our family and friends on the usual Copenhagen tourist cruises but decided to do something different this time. Hey Captain was brilliant, personal and great fun. Meeting passengers and getting to know a little about them was a cool way of introducing ourselves. Will do the same when our next visitors come to Denmark.

We took a Hidden Gem boat tour first afternoon in Copenhagen. It was the best way to start our adventure. Our guide was very easy going and informative. We loved our time on the boat seeing the beautiful sites of Copenhagen. It gave us insight into the culture of Denmark. Highly recommend!
