The historically important city of Delft is best discovered and contemplated from its centuries-old canals. For almost 50 years the canal cruiser boats of Rondvaart Delft have been sailing people along its canals, historic landmarks and centuries-old arched bridges.

Our experienced team of captains and guides are all passionate and knowledgeable about the rich history of this picturesque city and we pride ourselves on the live commentary we deliver in several languages. Come and see the beautiful old town from the canals that gave it its name, learn about Delft’s illustrious history in Holland and its royal connections including William of Orange, Dutch Masters Johannes Vermeer and Jan Steen, seafaring heroes Piet Hein and Maarten Tromp, Delftware, the leaning tower of Delft which is taller than the tower of Pisa and so much more.

Rondvaart Delft operates four cruise ships of which the silent boat “William the Silent” is one of the first fully electric canal cruise boats in the Netherlands. All our vessels are purpose built for the canals of Delft in order to fit under the low bridges and with their retractable roofs are suitable for all weather conditions.

The ships are moored in the old city centre within short walking distance from all tourist attractions as well as major public transport links and parking facilities.

From April first / 31st October we are open every day. For information and reservations we can be contacted throughout the year via telephone or e-mail. We are always happy to help.
