Coffeeshop Boat Tour
Many coffeeshops in Amsterdam are located on the beautiful canals. The Coffeeshop Boat Tour will educate you on the history of coffeeshops in Amsterdam and their culture and heritage. In Amsterdam we have 165 canals totaling 75 kilometres. The oldest Amsterdam canal is the Oudezijds Voorburgwal in the red-light district and was built in 1385. With more than 1500 bridges, we can safely say that Amsterdam has more bridges than Paris. Amsterdam is known globally as the Venice of the North.
Amsterdam has about 120 canal cruise operators, BUT….. There’s no one like us! The Coffeeshop Boat tour is unique – it can be called the Coffeeshop (Private) Boat Tour, as it really is like being on your own private boat.
Your captain will teach you about Amsterdam’s liberal opened-minded approach and the history of coffeeshops. Have a smoke, ride the boat and experience one of the most beautiful cities in the world from a different perspective. While Amsterdam has a tolerant policy towards cannabis, you are generally not permitted to smoke cannabis during a normal canal cruise or on public transport – but you can on The Coffeeshop Boat Tour!
Our Coffeeshop Boat Tour is a highly unique experience. Our convertible boat is heated in winter, stocked with drinks and nibbles and an ever-smiling skipper. Come aboard, smoke, sit back and relax for your private ganja cruise with your partner, colleagues or friends.
