Important information

Looking for a child-friendly canal cruise in Amsterdam? Then our Kids Cruise “Wanted: Freshwater Pirates” is ideal. On this cruise for kids, the youngest visitors will enjoy a cool audio story about pirates, while adults have their own audio. Our canal cruise through Amsterdam is the only kids cruise in the Dutch capital and will not bore your kids like a regular cruise might. Our kids cruise is great fun for children… and for parents! So the whole family will have a great time on our 75-minute Kids cruise. Book your tickets for the kids cruise now!

The story of Johnny the Mouse

My name is Johnny the mouse. There’s not much that scares me. My friend Harold, the cat, is a different story… He wants to be a pirate, but he is afraid of water! I am trying to help him get over this fear, but I need some help. Can you help me during this special kids’ cruise? While your parents listen to their story, you go on your own adventure! Spot all the animals in the city of Amsterdam with your pirate binoculars, design a lucky sign and a tattoo for Harold, draw the perfect ship-house and… become a certified Freshwater Pirate!

Book the only kids cruise in Amsterdam at Amsterdam Canal Cruises

If you’re going out for a fun day with the whole family in Amsterdam, then it can be hard to find something that your child or children will also enjoy. That’s why we’ve made the only child-friendly canal cruise in Amsterdam! The story for our kids cruise was specially developed to allow children to get to know the Amsterdam canals in a fun, playful way. As a parent, you listen to the regular audio guide (our audio guide is available in 19 languages!). This makes our children’s cruise a wonderful outing for the whole family!

  • The ONLY kids cruise in Amsterdam!
  • Free of charge with every daytime children’s ticket

Optional: add a snackbox to your booking and enjoy some snacks and drinks during your canal cruise! The snackbox includes chips, popcorn, stroopwafels, salted peanuts and a drink of your choice (soft drink, beer or wine).

Next to our Kids Cruise, we offer tons of fun boat tours, such as our famous City Canal Cruise and our Evening Cruise.
