Experience the Magic of Amsterdam at night on a private boat.

Romantic Night Canal Cruise Amsterdam

When the sun has set thousands of lights are turned on, the gorgeous merchant houses twinkle in darkness, the lights glitter on the world-famous canals, and the city comes alive with nocturnal activity. This gives way to a moment of wonder and romance making it a truly magical place. 

On this Amsterdam night canal tour, we will take you on a cruise through this intimate landscape. Picture yourself in Amsterdam when the night has fallen. All the bridges light up and you and your loved one sit closely together with a glistening glass of prosecco in your hand aboard a cozy heated boat.

On our small, comfortable, and quiet electric boat you will feel like you are the only ones cruising the Amsterdam canals. Nestle under warm blankets and drift past the impressive 17th-century canal houses, underneath the famous Amsterdam bridges, and see how the locals live in their houseboats.

While you listen to the sound of the rippling water, your private captain and guide shares heartwarming stories. You connect with long-forgotten Amsterdam legends and tales of love and learn fascinating details about the streets and architecture of this unique city. Often accompanied by a selected song that makes the experience complete. We promise, after your evening canal cruise, we will leave you and your partner set for a cozy night together. And yes, cruising the Amsterdam canals at night is as romantic as it sounds.

My husband and I had a lovely evening on Rocco’s canal cruise. It was intimate, and we really enjoyed the stories and music along the journey.
