You can make a reservation on the day itself. You can always call us or make a reservation on our website.

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.
