Hi, I'm Skipper Paap

I started touring the canals 12 years ago and have lived in Amsterdam for over 25 years.

I started sailing because one of my friends got sick and I wanted to show her around the city after her rehabilitation.

Getting around in a wheelchair can be a hassle in the small streets. So I decided to buy a boat.
All of my friends thought it was a cool idea and went on boat trips with me.
Then I started to invite strangers on board and the rest is history.

Hello from Amsterdam!
