Full description

Discover Rotterdam from the water with an electric boat rental from a jetty in Oude Haven. Enjoy the use of life jackets and get detailed instructions on how to use the boat without needing a boating license. Choose from a 1 or 2-hour rental period.

Head to the jetty next to the iconic yellow cube houses in Oude Haven and check in at the front desk. Listen as a staff member explains how to operate the electric boat. Embark on a self-guided adventure from the jetty aboard the boat.

Make your way to see the stunning architecture that lines the city's waterways with time to visit districts like Scheepsmakershaven, Leuvehaven, Wijnhaven, Haringvliet, Boerengat, and Buizengat. Return your boat to the jetty at the end of the rental period.

As a family (kids 4+7 yrs), we really enjoyed the ride. Uncomplicated booking and payment, very nice briefing and we were able to start 30 minutes earlier because we were too early. They are "experienced in boating", but really anyone can operate the e-boat - therefore: if your feet are burning and the little ones are nagging, get on the boat and go for a spin. And if you get tips for the city at the end, then that's it added value! Would do it again!
