Plastic fishing while cruising the canals

Cleaning is fun, during plastic fishing in Amsterdam. You may have heard about it before: you go with a boat on the canals to fish plastic from the canals of Amsterdam. You do this with handy scoop nets that you get from us. And at Eco Boats we only rent out electric boats. So you also cruise the canals eco friendly!

Would you like to rent an electric boat at our boat rental and use the scoop nets? Put ‘plastic fishing’ in the comments when making an online reservation. Of course you can also call or mail us! Also please read the canal rules before going on the canals. 

A nice day on the water

If you are looking for a fun but sustainable activity in Amsterdam then this is the outing for you. For instance, as a day out with friends or family or maybe as a company outing. Plastic fishing is one of the most popular team outings in Amsterdam. Why? 

  • You’re having a lovely day on the water
  • Cruising the canals in Amsterdam is always fun 
  • You have a clear assignment
  • Meanwhile you can enjoy the beautiful route through the canals of Amsterdam
  • You work together with colleagues, friends or family (good for the team spirit)
  • You contribute to a cleaner Amsterdam

Enough reasons to go plastic fishing, right?

Children’s party, team outing or a day with the family

Whatever the reason, plastic fishing is a joyful activity for everyone. A growing amount of organizations want to contribute something to society and nature. But an outing should of course also provide relaxation and team building. With plastic fishing you’re in the right place. But also for children’s parties or other family outings this is a super fun activity. You teach children that they have to take good care of nature and at the same time they are playing outside. Don’t worry, they will all be wearing life jackets!

How does plastic fishing work?

We advise you to take 2 hours for the plastic fishing, of course longer is also allowed. This will give you enough time to collect as much plastic and other waste as possible. You rent a sloop from us, and we take care of the scoop nets and garbage bags. It is handy to separate the waste directly on board. So let’s get this straight:

  • You make a reservation for a sloop (please put in the notes, when making the reservation, that you want to go plastic fishing)
  • You get a map of the canals, scoop nets and garbage bags for the plastic. 
  • We’ll explain all the boating rules
  • There are also blankets and pillows on board to make the cruise comfortable
