Amsterdam: Canal Plastic Fishing Cruise with Breakfast

5. Amsterdam: Canal Plastic Fishing Cruise with Breakfast

Amsterdam is a city famous thanks to its amazing canals. Unfortunately, some of the locals and tourists that visit the city (over 18 million a year) leave behind a ridiculous amount of trash - most of it is plastic. Throughout this opportunity, fish the plastic that falls overnight out of the water, endangering the beautiful ducks, birds, and swans which live on the canals. The cruise will start on the Amstel River, from where it travels straight to the Red Light District home to the most trash in town. A local guide shows you how to fish the plastic out of the water with a net, guarded by gloves. All that on an amazing, covered, and 100%-electric boat. All the plastic that you collect will be sent to a local artist who produces plastic lamps, trash bins, and souvenirs. Throughout your cruise, complimentary coffee, tea, soft drinks, croissants, pastries, and fresh orange juice will be served.
