While we typically offer private boat cruises on our cute saloon boat, we’ve decided to make it possible for visitors to Amsterdam to tour the city the way locals do - on cozy, intimate boats. We keep our groups small (our boat’s maximum capacity is 10 passengers) which ensures that you have the most authentic experience possible.

You’ll enjoy a leisurely cruise through Amsterdam’s legendary canals, discovering both the city’s historic landmarks as well as its hidden gems. The Amsterdam canal system has lots of narrow canals that are only accessible to small boats like the Zavi, so you’ll have a rare opportunity to sail through these “secret passageways” and catch a glimpse at the cute gardens and charming patios that most tourists miss!

Our reputation

Top captain and boat

"Very nice and well kept boat with a captain/guide who loves his city and loves to share his knowledge of it: what do you want more? Lovely expérience."

Roberto G
Highly recommend

"We loved this boat trip. The best one we have done in Amsterdam and all because of Brian. Was a lovely host/captain, we had such a cool time. Would book it again for sure, highly recommend. Amazing experience and wonderful trip"


"Very informative relaxed cruise. Lots of information from an enthusiastic local. The boat has some roof which was great as it was a very hot day so nice to spend some time in the shade. Another great point - the boat is electric!!. No noise, and no fumes."
