Walk or bike? Great. Segway, bus or car? Forget it. Float by boat? Absolutely.

So boat with the best. Meet Those Dam Boat Guys, the pioneers of intimate and (sometimes) irreverent boat tours in Amsterdam. It’s an interactive boat tour and you’re invited.


Who are Those Dam Boat Guys?

Jesse, Neil and Alec are three dudes from the west coast of North America who found themselves in Amsterdam. They realized that they were passionate about history, had good people skills, and loved the sound of their own voices, so becoming tour guides was the logical career choice. In 2015, they created an Amsterdam boat tour company unlike others.

What's This Experience About?

Jesse, Neil and Alec are the pioneers of small boat tours — with no pretense. It’s the kind of experience that they themselves would enjoy — intimate boat tours with genuine, flowing conversations. BYOB, smoke whatever you want, have a laugh and learn about Amsterdam. Have your knowledgeable captain all to yourselves and have the greatest time on water with your gang — no matter what you’re celebrating. Got a bigger group? They have boats that fit up to 25-ish people. Float like a local and join the best interactive boat experience in Amsterdam.

“This boat tour with Captain Julian was amazing!!! The city of Amsterdam is beautiful to see from the canals and our tour guide Julian made the city come alive even more with the knowledge he shared. He was funny, friendly, and professional! A MUST do!!”

“If you’re looking for a more personal experience, then this is the one for you. We can’t wait to come back and set sail with them again, this time for longer because 90 minutes on a beautiful sunny day just wasn’t enough. We would’ve spent the entire day with Lee if we could have!”


– Holly

“Julien was a wonderful host and captain. We sailed away with him regardless of weather! (Cold and rain!) He supplied lots of stories and history and blankets. We booked a private tour and asked him to take us to HIS favorite spots. We were not disappointed with his choices, I would definitely tour with them again. Smaller boats with much more personal service.”

Untamed. Easygoing. Hilarity guaranteed. Every hang out with Jesse, Neil and Alec starts with a hug and inevitably spirals to side-splitting laughter.  Oh yeah, and booze. We met while working at an improv theatre years ago. All of them have that West Coast-cool mixed with Amsterdam savviness. What we love about them is their creative and unpretentious vibes, and that’s exactly what they bring to their boat tours. This is why we love having them on board.
