About us

Ever since its foundation in the 1950’s, Lovers Canal Cruises has been a familiar sight in the Amsterdam canals for decades. Early 2016 the whole fleet of no less then 45 boats has undergone a serious upgrade including new interiors and a beautiful new orange-grey color line. The capacity of our boats varies from 12-120 seats. A part of the fleet operates in a scheduled service under the well-known brand of Hop on-Hop off City Sightseeing.

Lovers Canal Cruises is the best choice to discover the beautiful Amsterdam canals. Boats depart from various  locations, with scheduled time tables from early in the morning till late in the evening (9.00 - 22.00 hrs) and on request for groups. 

The company offers all kinds of itineraries supported by interesting audio available in 18 languages. 

There where catering is involved Lovers Canal Cruises work together with Frans Kelders Cuisinier a former Michelin star chef. He and his team make the difference on our dinner, candlelight, pizza and burger cruises. 

Last but not least the guests can join one of our century-old salon boats or board a solar driven (silent and clean!) small boat that also allows a visit to the smallest canals.
