Boat tours in Amsterdam with Rederij Plas – our route*
The Boat Tour of Amsterdam takes roughly 1 hour. The boat departs from the Damrak and proceeds along the Oostelijk Openhavenfront towards the Oosterdok. From the Oosterdok the route continues along the Kromme Waal, Oude Waal and Oude Schans. The boat joins the Amstel river by way of the Sint Antoniesluis (lock) via de Zwanenburgwal. The boat cruises past the Stopera, under the Blauwbrug and then turns into the Herengracht. This takes you past the official residence of the mayor of Amsterdam and some of the most magnificent merchant houses in the Gouden Bocht. At the end of the Herengracht the boat turns into the Brouwersgracht and via the Haarlemmersluis (lock) you will once again join the river IJ. This will take you round the back of Central Station where you will see the Eye Film museum on the northern bank. From the Ij the boat turns into the Oosterdok, past the Oostelijk Openhavenfront and back to the Damrak.
