Owner description: The Watertaxi was founded in 2011 to entice visitors of the harbour to park their cars outside the city and transport them by boat from there to the centre of the city and the harbour. While sailing they admire the beautiful ancient buildings, canals, locks and how the city was originated. As a result of the enthusiastic reactions we started to offer boat tours where the boatman guides you through all this beauty in your own language.
This kind of tours usually last 60 minutes. On board you can enjoy wine, chilled beer and soft drinks, all for free. On request we can also provide little snacks or fulfil other wishes.
Our first boat, we started with, is a beautiful Norwegian aluminium lifeboat from 1956. This is exactly the right size to pass the lowest bridges and to get to the best spots in town and is also suitable for the Markermeer. The boat can accommodate 12 guests.
Since 2015 we have, as a second boat, a fully electric one, suitable for 18 people. Environmentally friendly and wonderful quiet, so you and your party can enjoy even more.
You rather cruise by yourself? We have also an electric boat for rent, so you can be your own skipper and discover Hoorn at your own pace.
