Private boat tours

Are you looking for an exclusive saloon boat or private open boat for a cruise on the Amsterdam canals? Or do prefer 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 saloon 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, since 1914, have received the status of sailing monument and are on the Dutch monument list.

Enjoy in style and silence

Our luxury saloon boats cruise on 100% electric engines and are equipped with all modern comfort, so you can enjoy everything Amsterdam has to offer in a perfect ambiance. Since various Grand Hotels in Amsterdam request our services, we are used to meeting the highest standards. We are flexible and always try to fulfil your personal wishes. Our excellent service is complimentary and you may expect this from us at all times.

Looking for a tailor-made cruise ?

You can decide how long you wish to cruise for. Our minimum private cruising time is 1 hour, but we recommend a minimum of 1,5 hours. We are specialized in last-minute cruises; just contact us on +31 (0)653993306 let us know where you would like to start and finish your cruise and we will come to you without any extra costs, if you are in the city centre. Do you want to organise a business meeting on board in an intimate setting? Why not use us as a taxi service to cruise, for example, to a restaurant or museum? Something to celebrate or would you like to surprise someone or perhaps even propose?
Our boats provide the ideal setting.


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.


“The boat, the captain, the route; everything was according to our wishes”
