Semi-open Boat Cruise

Semi-open Boat Cruise by LOVERS Canal Cruises

Discover the Amsterdam Canals with the Semi-open Boat Cruise. This cruise is perfect on a sunny day, with the open roof you can enjoy the sun of your face and take in your surroundings. The roof can be closed though, so when it rains you will stay dry, warm and comfortable. The boats are environmentally friendly, they are completely silent and run on solar energy.

The Amsterdam canals

Cruise on the UNESCO world heritage listed Amsterdam canals with the semi-open boat cruise. The boat is a bit smaller than the regular cruise boats which makes it possible to cruise the more narrow canals like the ones in the Red Light District. On board, there is audio commentary available in multiple languages so you can learn about your surroundings along the way. You’ll see the 17th-century merchant houses, old bridges, and famous attractions and sights.
