Rederij Amsterdam Boat Cruises is part of Rederij van Hulst. This is originally a real family business. Before new partners joined the shipping company a few years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Van Hulst worked hard on the shipping company for over 40 years. Mr. Van Hulst is still working with the new partners in the shipping company. His extensive knowledge and experience in the shipping industry are very valuable.
Over the years, Rederij van Hulst has specialized in culinary canal cruises, day trips and parties on the water. The shipping company is a household name in the Green Heart region for events on water. Due to increased work, the shipping company has grown considerably. The office is located in Katwijk. As of 2017, the fleet has been replaced in phases. The older ships have made room for beautiful newbuildings. These have been designed, built and finished in-house under the watchful eye of Mr. Van Hulst Sr. Maintenance takes place behind the office at the company's own shipyard with a real dry dock.
Various expansions have completed coverage in the region and Rederij van Hulst is the only canal company in the Green Heart with sailing locations in Warmond, Leiden, Leiderdorp, Lisse, Noordwijk, Noordwijk-Binnen, Sassenheim and Katwijk aan Zee."
The shipping company Amsterdam Boat Cruises was created by entering into a cooperation with Port of Amsterdam and Amports with the goal: the realization of permanent canal cruise activities in the port area of Amsterdam. The basis is a two-hour harbor tour for the consumer market. In addition, the business market is optimally served through passionate customization. Amsterdam Boat Cruises takes its passengers on a compelling story that tells the past, present and future of the Port of Amsterdam. During the cruise, five generations of Amsterdammers will speak. They talk passionately about their connection with the port. The port area is grand and dynamic and has very progressive ambitions that get a stage on board with Amsterdam Boat Cruises.
