About Flagship Amsterdam

In 2017, three young entrepreneurs started working together to create the best canal cruise company in Amsterdam. Their goal is to make sure that everyone enjoys a great experience and become the best in the industry.

Last year, Flagship Amsterdam was named the second-best day cruise in the world by Tripadvisor. This year, Tripadvisor and our customers rewarded us with the title #1 best day-cruise in the world. We couldn’t do this without our lovely customers and our, over 250, hard working colleagues.

About us

Three enterpeneurs, one goal!

Flagship Amsterdam is the brainchild of three entrepreneurs (and wannabe pirates) Eduke, Raimon and Silver, who all own 46 beautiful and 100% electric boats. Bothered by the impersonal approach of the cruise companies that dominated the Amsterdam waters,  they headed on to plan a take over. Less tourist traps with boring audio tours and cranky captains and more of the true Amsterdam hospitality with drinks on board and incredibly enthusiastic local hosts.

What others say about Flagship Amsterdam

Amazing experience

"We rented a big boat for Gaypride and we had such a great experience! The boat was perfect, in a great spot, and... working with Eduke was great. He was SO nice and patient with us, and reliable. "

Very nice cruise

"This is the cruise you should take! Why choose one of those standard tour boats when you could choose this one!! Super relaxed. It was so much fun! I highly recommend this."

Beautiful cruise, beautiful boat, excellent service!

"A day out with family in Amsterdam - a beautiful city when you walk around but you only see the real beauty of it from the water! Giel and Carrie were super and created a good, relaxed atmosphere on board with nice stories about Amsterdam. Thank you for an unforgettable hour on the Amsterdam canals!"
