Job Title: Captain/Skipper and Guide for Amsterdam Boat Adventures

Amsterdam Boat Adventures will be seeking an enthusiastic Captain/Skipper and Guide to lead our boat tours and provide an unforgettable experience for our customers. Our tours take place on the beautiful canals of Amsterdam and we will be looking for someone who has a passion for the city and its history, as well as a love for boating and the water.



  • Commandeer our open boat like a true sea captain, navigating through the winding canals with ease and grace (and maybe a little bit of swagger).
  • Enchant our passengers with fascinating stories and anecdotes about Amsterdam, all while maintaining a smile and a level of enthusiasm that makes them feel like they’re on a boat cruise with their new best friend.
  • Ensure the comfort and satisfaction of passengers, responding to any questions they may have.

Job Requirements:

  • Live in the region of Amsterdam and have a valid BSN number and/or work visa if from outside of European Union
  • A passion for Amsterdam and all of its quirks and charms, and the ability to share that passion with others in a way that’s both informative, relaxed and fun.
  • A good sense of humor and the ability to roll with the punches (and the waves, and the occasional tourist who insists on taking selfies during the entire tour).
  • The ability to work flexible hours, including weekends and holidays
  • Language skill: English and preferably also Dutch. 

The following requirements are preferred or you are willing to get these on short notice:

  • VHF licence (marifoon basis certificaat) or RYA Marine Radio Short Range Certificate (SRC)
  • The certificate for Social Hygiene (SVH)
  • Experience operating boats, preferably in Amsterdam or similar waterways.


  • Competitive salary and bonus opportunities
  • Paid training and courses, so you’ll be fully ready to entertain our guests.
  • A fun and dynamic work environment, with a team of passionate and dedicated individuals.
