Attraction details
Owner description: At Boats4rent you can rent a self operated boat and explore the beautiful and famous canals of Amsterdam. Upon arrival you will receive a personal instruction about the boat and a detailed map of the Amsterdam canals. This map includes some nice route suggestions. After this instruction it is great fun and really easy to drive our boats. You don't need any licence, nor experience for that. Being on the water in a private boat is a great experience in Amsterdam. It might be the highlight of your trip! The electric propulsion of the boats assures a smooth ride: silent and without exhaust fumes.

Great service as well. We did the Prinsengracht, Amstel, Keizersgracht circuit, as recommended. The boats was easy to handle, and noiseless.

We enjoyed the boat ride and advise everybody to experience this pleasure. Thanks to my friend, Nadire who advises me Boat4rent and to Roos de Klein who gives us the necessary information about the tour.

I am an American living in Amsterdam and really love Boats4Rent. It is a fun, affordable way to see the city via its canals and a good alternative to the dinner/pizza/cocktail cruises. You can rent a boat that you pick up in the Westerpark which is conveniently located right near where I live. You don't need any boating experience to drive the boats. There are maps on each boat with interesting routes outlined which is great if you don't know the city well. You can bring snacks and drinks on the boat for a lovely morning, afternoon, or evening out on the water in Amsterdam. I would highly recommend this to anyone!

Fun boat trip with the fluisterboot. Perfect for a great view of our city from the canal. The boat is quiet with its small electric motor, quite slow too of course but speed is not what it's about. Only thing missing are the trips on the website.

Great boat, good value for money. Can take up to 6 people and the guys give you all the instructions plus a map with the best routes to take. We did it twice, and both experiences were amazing. Bring your drink and some nibbles and it will be a memorable experience!
