Welcome to the perfect Canal Cruise Experience!Language guarantee!We strive to create a unique experience on our regular cruises (our City Canal Cruises, Evening Cruises and Blue Boat Dinner Cruise); all our boats are equipped with an extensive Personal Audio System that lets you select the language you prefer. On our City Canal Cruise we offer 17 languages choose from! We provide you with your own set of headphones, which are yours to keep. It also means you do not have to listen to any of the other languages, just to the one that you have selected. And because you only hear one language, we can tell you more!Blue Boat Company's fleet consists of luxurious party boats; six of our boats are fitted with wheelchair access en two are powered by electricity, using “green electricity” to make our contribution to cleaner air. All our boats have a glass roof that can be opened, an outside deck on the back (ideal for picture taking!)and in winter, we turn on our central heating!In summer, take our unique small open boat, the Blue Sky Boat, for a more intimate tour.And don't forget our unique 4 course a la carte dinner cruise, which combines a lovely meal, specially selected wines and the best views in one evening!

Loved this. Many other canal cruise companies advertise "evening" cruises. But when it's summertime, and the sun doesn't set until 10PM, a 6PM cruise isn't going to show you the lights on the canals, or the Dancing Houses all lit up, or the city twinkling...More

We bought a 24 hour ticket for a reasonable price and enjoyed a comfortable canal cruise with the bonus of getting off to see a few sights. Very efficient and picturesque.
