Private boat tours & private boat dinners

Are you looking for an exclusive classic boat for a luxury canal cruise in a private setting? Cruising the canals in style? Maybe you are interested in classic boat dinners with haute cuisine dining on board?

You have come to the right place at Private Canal Cruises. We are a high end shipping company specialized in private boat tours for small groups with perhaps the two most beautiful small classic boats in Amsterdam. We have personally restored both private boats with great love and attention for detail and we keep them in pristine condition. We are therefore very proud that both Saloon boat Salute, built in 1922, and Saloon boat Style, from 1914, have received the status of sailing monument and are on the Dutch monument list.

The route

Our professional captains know the city like the back of their hand and can tell you everything about the city on request. We do not have a fixed cruising route but we determine where we go in consultation with your wishes. We would also like to show you the lesser-known parts of Amsterdam. If you prefer to enjoy an intimate romantic cruise for the two of you without being disturbed, this is of course also possible. The size of our boats is perfect to explore the smaller canals as well, there where most others boats cannot go.

Culinary highlights

We also distinguish ourselves culinary because we work with carefully selected caterers and restaurants that mainly work with local and fresh ingredients. Regardless if you book a breakfast cruise, choose a hot or cold lunch, order some bites to go with your drinks or some fresh oysters with your champagne; quality is always guaranteed.

We are well-known for our classic boat tours including excellent 3-course a la carte lunches and dinners. They are a true culinary experience. Our private boat dinners can be extended with extra courses when preferred. We serve matching wines directly from our climate controlled wine cabinet. You do not have to order them in advance. This goes for almost all drinks from our always well-stocked bar.
