Seeing the beautiful canals of Amsterdam by boat is undoubtedly the most enjoyable way to take in the city sights, but being crammed onto a glass-roofed tourist boat with hundreds of others clamouring for the best view or photo opportunity can be a real disappointment. If you’d prefer to enjoy an option with a more personal touch, why not consider a private boat tour? This provides a more tailored cruise where you can see everything that you would on a standard tourist cruise but in greater luxury and with the added bonus of a personal host and skipper to make your voyage as memorable as possible!

Enjoy a unique al fresco dining experience on our BBQ Boat
Having a BBQ onboard a boat might seem like a somewhat unusual activity but with limited BBQing spots along the canals, it’s the best way to enjoy a bit of alfresco dining! With a personal chef cooking up all the BBQ classics and a host to keep you entertained and informed, there’ll be no arguments about burned sausages! There are fewer joys so great in life than being out on a boat but this really takes things up to the next level. In addition to enjoying the tasty treats served up by our Grill Master, our open bar will keep your thirst quenched throughout with a selection of ice-cold beers, wines and soft drinks. Spirits are available on request – after all, what could be more civilised than a refreshing Gin and Tonic before dinner? Any dietary requirements can be catered for – just be sure to mention anything like this when booking.
Amsterdam Light Festival
The Amsterdam Light Festival is one of the city’s premier cultural events and has grown to be one of Europe’s most popular annual art festivals. The Amsterdam Light Festival exhibits installations from some of the world’s foremost contemporary light artists across the city’s canal belt. It really is a highlight of the winter months but, with colder weather and the unpredictable Dutch climate, being able to enjoy the festival in comfort is an absolute must! Starboard’s boats come fitted out with heated cushions, a retractable roof and enough Gluhwein for the thirstiest of groups! Book your Amsterdam Light Festival tickets here now!
If you’re looking to hire a private boat but without a skipper or host, it’s perfectly possible to rent one from Mokum Boot and set sail on the canals at your own pace. Although they lack the luxury of a hosted private boat tour, Amsterdam can be explored however you wish when you’re at the helm of your own little boat. Want to be your own captain and explore the city with a handful of friends or family on board? Find out more here.
