      You can choose the (nearest) pick-up point by selecting one of the piers on the map, which are shown by ⚓ anchors ⚓

    • I see no boats on the map?

      That’s correct! We know where they are though.

    • How long are we going to be on the water?

      You’ll need at least an hour to experience a touch of the majestic Canals of Amsterdam. Therefore we have set this as the minimum time. However, if you specify you time advance, you can sail as long as you want!

    • Which different types of boat can I sail?

      There are four different types of boat: Big Boats (Over 20 people), Open Boats (with a 360 degree view), Romantic Boats (for just the two of you), and Saloon Boats (classical).

    • Can we Hop On, Hop Off?

      Ask us in advance, we’ll ask the captain.

    • What are the facilities on board?

      Per boat an overview of facilities is given. Therefore you know exactly beforehand if there is a toilet on the boat or that a roof will shield you from Dutch rain.

    • Can the captain arrange something to drink and/or eat for on board?

      This is heavily dependent on which boat you pick. However, the captain is always open for suggestions, also regarding dietary wishes. We’ll ask you by chat/phone what you prefer.

    • Can I bring my own food/drinks?

      Overall, this shouldn’t be a problem. Particular boats may charge a fee for this. We’ll let you know by phone if this is the case.

    • Can I change or cancel my order?

      Once you have placed a Free Request you can always cancel it by text/WhatsApp/call. We’ll contact you first to specify the details. If afterwards the boat is underway to the pick-up point you cannot cancel anymore.

    • When can I sail a boat?

      We are available 24/7 on chat. However captains need their sleep as well. Therefore there are less boats available at night and the price could be higher as well. Send us a text and we’ll see what’s possible.
