These are strange times, in which we have to make a lot of adjustments to our daily lives. But that doesn’t mean you have to sit inside all day! In the Netherlands, the main measure is to keep 1,5 meter (five feet) distance between yourself and other people. Even with this measure, there’s tons of fun stuff you can do in gorgeous Amsterdam! For instance, you can check out the beauty of the city from the water – of course according to national measures to control the spread of the coronavirus. At Amsterdam Canal Cruises we follow the measures of the RIVM, which means you can enjoy a corona proof canal cruise at all times!
Are you looking for a corona proof outing? Then you’ve found the right website! All our canal cruises are adjusted to the corona measures; for example we sail with a smaller occupancy. Read all about corona proof sailing in Amsterdam on this page!
