If you say Sail Amsterdam, you think of ships, nautical history, fun and enjoyment and … fireworks. True to tradition, each Sail day ends with a dazzlingly beautiful and sometimes deafening fireworks display above the IJ bay. On board one of our saloon boats you are ‘bang in the middle of it’.
We will take you on an evening cruise alongside the Tall Ships moored in the ‘IJ haven’. Many of the ships are illuminated with festive lights and shine from afar. But it gets even better…..
Around the time the fireworks start, we will look for more space, so that you can have the best seats in the house. Obviously we will be at a safe distance from the ship setting off the fireworks display. Prepare yourself for a blaze of light and colour that not only sparkles and lights up the night sky, but is also mirrored in the water of the IJ bay. Doubly beautiful!
Would you like to experience the unique atmosphere of Sail in the evening and enjoy the ships and the fireworks? Choose your day, choose your saloon boat and make your reservation. We welcome you on board!
You and your party will be received at Museum ‘t Kromhout in Amsterdam with drinks. This historic museum shipyard is the perfect nautical begin for your boat trip.
Once your party is complete, you embark on one of the saloon boats. The boat is cast off and we set sail for the ‘IJ haven’ and Sail Amsterdam via the Nieuwe Herengracht and the Oosterdok. Your cruise takes you past the Tall Ships and other sailing ships moored in the ‘IJ haven’. Be amazed at the fireworks that are already shooting into the night. Throughout the entire trip our hostesses provide drinks and snacks and make sure that you lack for nothing.
End of the programme and we moor once more at the Kromhout shipyard.
