    Friendly owner. A tour boat aluminum and electric motor. A very good idea and not that expensive. A point of view of Amsterdam very nice. A bit far from downtown but doable pier on bike or on foot

    The boats belonging to Canal Motorboats are fine and the people who rent them out are very friendly and helpful. They are also in a great location for a walk before or after you go out on the water!  more »

    Went here as an American Tourist. They speak great English. Great guys running a down to earth business. Good prices for the experience you get. Helped me understand the boating process and rules to the canal since I was a tourist. Gave me recommendations about places in the area. Cannot recommend this place enough. Truly a 5 star ecxperience

    Great motorboat deal and a perfect way to see the city of Amsterdam. It is certainly an experience not had in other cities. It requires literally no boating experience. The owner shows you how to operate the boat within 5 minutes and then you're off on your own! It is very easy to learn and get the hang of. The prices are fair compared to other rental places and the owner and staff is super friendly. Definitely bring some sort of food and drinks to sit back and enjoy while sailing along the canals. 2-3 hours is plenty of time to see most of the canals. Rent it longer if you plan on docking the boat and visiting areas around where you dock.

    I arrived with my friend who has mild autism and they were extremely accommodating, allowing him to wear a captains hat and drive the boat. The boats themselves aren't scuffed and very modern. I'll definitely come back!

    Wonderful boat trip with my autistic brother Paul Denino. Me and Paul had a great time and Alfred was very accommodating. He sometimes screams out loud but we managed to keep him calm at all times. Overall wonderful business!
