Ahoy, we are the Amsterdam-born Dutchies behind Eco Boats Amsterdam

Eco Boats has brand-new electric boats, built in 2022, with the newest technical advances and best material. After having worked for similar companies for years, we decided to get our own permit and combine all our knowledge to create the perfect boat. Needless to say, we are proud of the result. Discover it for yourself during one of the beautiful boat trips you can take in Amsterdam.

Choose between different boats

At Eco Boats Amsterdam, you can choose between different boats. The location, the fare and the maximum number of people differ per boat. So there is always a suitable boat for your needs!

Amsterdam city centre and Amsterdam East

Choose between two different boarding locations at Eco Boats Amsterdam. The Keizers Boat and the Prinsen Boat can be hired from location Amsterdam centre (Zandhoek 22 Amsterdam). You will return the boat at the same location. Which location do you prefer?

Plastic fishing

We at Eco Boats Amsterdam find it very important to keep the canals clean. Therefore, it is possible to fish plastic from the canals while cruising the canals. We’ll make sure that everything is on the boat to make this possible. If you would like to do this, please put ‘plastic fishing‘ the comments when making a reservation and we will make sure everything is ready for you. This is completely free when you rent a boat.

You can call us at that time to ask if this is possible because of other reservations. If you are late bringing the boat back without permission we will charge you €30 per 15 minutes late.

We'd prefer it if that won't happen. Should it happen anyway, we will charge you €30 per 15 minutes late. Please call us if you think you're going to be late.

  • Up to 48 hours before the start of the reservation? Then you can reschedule for free. Cancel completely? Then you will get 50% of the amount paid back.*
  • Within 48 hours before the start of the reservation? Canceling or reschedule is then no longer possible. You then owe the full amount.

In weather conditions where it is not safe to sail, only Eco Boats Amsterdam can decide to reschedule the reservation. The reservation will then be moved free of charge to a later date to be determined by the tenant (within one year after the booked date). We will of course contact you in this situation. *Note: special days such as King's Day and Gay Pride cannot be canceled at all.

Yes you can, but there may be different rates and conditions during events. Please check our homepage for up-to-date information.
