Every local will confirm: “Amsterdam looks the most beautiful from the water”.
Sailing the canals, being outside and all the beauty that Amsterdam has to offer in one job. The Rijksmuseum, Leidseplein, the canals, you can see it all from the water. As a boat host(ess) you sail along on the boats or fix the ins and outs at the quay. Sounds good so far?

  • You get a beautiful workplace
  • A great team because we believe that your colleagues complete your work day
  • An even better salary of 13.93 euros gross per hour all-in wage (holidays, holiday money is included)

What are you going to do?

As a boat host(ess) you have a very varied workday. Your job is constantly changing. You can receive passengers at the quay, sell tickets, keep track of the boat schedule and of course sail along. On the boat you take care of the drinks and make the trip an amazing experience for the passengers. You can literally show Amsterdam to hundreds of people a day. In summary, your working day consists of:

  • Sell and scan tickets
  • Welcoming passengers and helping with questions
  • Catering on the boat
  • Make sure the shop, the boats and the jetty look great

Stromma has no less than 11 boarding locations in Amsterdam. All are centrally located and are among the most beautiful places in the city. Think of the Westertoren, Central Station and the Rijksmuseum. On a working day you regularly switch between the locations. Usually it is a short walk, but with the bike you are there in no time!
