General FAQ

  • What is BoatNow?

    BoatNow is an independent platform where you can rent a boat. We have the largest selection of boats in Amsterdam (over 115). On the website or in the app you can filter on boat type, number of passengers etc. and ask for an offer for up to 5 boats. You can use the BoatNow website or app to browse through all the available boats and book your favourite well in advance, but you can also choose 'Boat Now' in the app: within an hour you can be on the water and experience the beauty of Amsterdam in a very special way.

  • What is a free request?

    Like it says, a request for a boat totally free of charge. You let us know which boat(s), how many people and at which date and we will check the availability. We will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • What is the difference between Boat Now and Boat Later in the app?

    With Boat Now we guarantee you to step aboard a boat in under 60 minutes from now. With Boat Later you can be assured of the availability of your favourite boat well in advance.

  • What if no boats are around on the app?

    We’ll still contact you by phone to see how we can help you out. Perhaps there is a boat available a few tram stops away!

  • Are all boats always available?

    We have unique tools to determine whether or not a particular boat is available. Send us a Free Request and we’ll let you know.
