About Watersportcentre Sloterplas

Watersportcentre Sloterplas is the best location to be outdoors in Amsterdam. Sailing, supping, canoeing, watercycling, or have a drink with a view, it’s all possible! 

Learn how to sail, celebrate your birthday or join the Splashweeks in the holidays! You can also come by with your school, or organize a great teambuilding activity for your business.

Our instructors are there for you to make sure you have an unforgettable day on the water. Young and old, everyone and everything is welcome, because watersports are for everyone!


Want to spend your holidays on the water? Come join the Splashweek! Everyone between 8 and 16 years old is welcome to explore the waters of the Sloterplas during the May and Summer Holidays. You can choose between different activities, such as sailing and windsurfing. If you want to do a different activity every day, check out the Allround Camp, where you can build your own raft, explore the jungle in a canoe or pedal boat, or try to balance yourself on a SUP-board. That means a lot of fun on the water!
