Eco friendly boats for rent

 Eco Boats Amsterdam owes its name to our commitment to sustainable boating. We find it very important to keep the beautiful canals of Amsterdam clean. We have taken on Amsterdam’s plan to free up the canals entirely of diesel fuel. Our electric boats were built especially for this. We are also always busy keeping the canals of Amsterdam clean. For example, we occasionally go plastic fishing and organize boat trips where you can do the same!
