    What to Expect
    We begin the adventure in the beautiful Jordaan; one of our favourite districts away from the crowds. We'll explore our tailored routes through the quaint canals, which we've cruised for the past 15 years, sharing fun facts and stories such as the evolution of the historic canals and what it's like living in this amazing city.
    Your expert captain & host will explain the heritage of Amsterdam, and the typical Dutch lifestyle from a modern perspective. On the 2 hour cruise you can see the larger main canals with the grand mansions, as well as the river Amstel and the smaller canals with beautiful views such as the Raamgracht. We tailor the route on the weather and the time of day but of course we can also include your wishes and ideas, so don't hesitate to let the captain know!
    While the age old canals pass you by you can enjoy a variety of drinks and snacks that are locally sourced and are hand picked for you to make your experience on the water even better. We offer a selection of 5 craft beers and various wines, which change per season, and a large variety of non alcoholic drinks as well. The snack platters included offer you a taste of Amsterdam, including local cheese, cookies, sausages, grapes and other snacks.
    The boats in the Pure Boats fleet are fully electric, newly built and/or fully restored and suited with comfortable couches, a canopy in case of sunshade or rain and a large on board fridge so ensure you have the most relaxed and comfortable cruise.

    There are multiple cruises each day. We took one at 130 PM in April. Contact Pure Cruises Geertje, and she'll help you find one that works for you.

    That may be a little bit more difficult for them to put together, why not take your own vegan snacks? It's really all about the beautiful boat ride and scenery anyways.

    We were in a small boat that was able to go where the larger ones couldn't. Six passengers on board for our cruise, Ten would be too crowded. Maybe they have a larger boat.
