Plastic fishing in Amsterdam

What do you do to keep mother nature a clean place? And do you think it’s important that everyone contributes to diminish the ecological impact we have on nature? We couldn’t agree more. Amsterdam is our home base and, like everyone else, we love our beautiful canal belt, which has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2010. Let’s all make sure that these beautiful canals remain so beautiful. Will you help us?

Try out plastic fishing

Plastic fishing while sailing

Find out that cleaning can also be fun, during plastic fishing in Amsterdam. You may have heard about it before; you go out with a group 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 sail sustainably!

Would you like to rent an electric boat at Eco Boats Amsterdam and use the scoop nets? Put ‘plastic fish’ in the comments for your online reservation. Of course you can also call or mail us!

A nice day on the water

If you are looking for a fun but sustainable activity in Amsterdam then this is for you. Maybe as a day out with friend or family or maybe as a company outing. Plastic fishing is one of the most popular team outings in Amsterdam. Why? We can tell you:

  • You’re having a lovely day on the water
  • Sailing in Amsterdam is always fun (even though I’ve done this a few times already)
  • 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, company outing or family occasion

Whatever the reason for your occasion, 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 sailing 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 (indicate when you make the reservation that you want to fish plastic)
  • You get a route map, scoop nets and garbage bags on board
  • We’ll explain all the sailing rules before you go out
  • There are also rugs and pillows on board to make the cruise comfortable
Reserve your sloop
