On this unique Amsterdam boat adventure and private boat tour, we take you on a canal cruise from the centre of Amsterdam along the beautiful Brouwergracht towards the Western Islands. Here we discover the Prinsen Islands (Prinseneilanden), which is a charming Amsterdam island oasis that consists of Realen Island, Prinsen Island and Bickers Island.  In the 17th century these Western Islands were a buzzing harbour, shipyard and warehouse district. Today Prinsen Islands have turned into a little hidden gem of Amsterdam, with its tranquil atmosphere and amazing original old warehouses with colourful ship sail shades, elegant white bridges and lovely canals with lots of beautiful houseboats and even a yellow submarine.
