Aboard a boat is the best way to experience King's Day. Not only do you have a fantastic view of the canals from the water, but you also enjoy the ships on the water. In addition, the stands on the shore and the live music on the bridges. Celebrating King's Day on a boat is a unique experience. Amsterdam Boat Events tries to give as many people as possible a chance to experience King's Day from the water. Given the crowds, however, it is wise to inquire about availability on time.
