We are going on a treasure hunt!

Similar to metal detecting where objects are found on land using a metal detector, magnet fishing is about finding metal objects in water using strong magnets. Have you always imagined what could be at the bottom of a lake near where you live? There have been interesting finds by people who have been curious enough to tie a magnet at the end of a rope to answer this – many of them were very surprised with what they have found.

Magnet fishing in our canals is one of the greatest outdoor experiences one can have. To throw out your magnet and to see what you pull out feels so exciting. It is unbelievable what metal objects you dig up from our canals. Keys, jewels, warattributes, pistols, knives, axes, parts of bikes, cars, you name it, I saw it getting dragged out of our waters.
We will meet in the centre near one of our famous bridges and I will talk you trough our beautiful history while I hand you all a strong magnet with a rope attached, we trow out our magnets and we're off! This is not only an awesome activity to enjoy, you also help clean our canals, for which the city of Amsterdam is forever grateful!

Hi People! My name is Youri, I am 34 years old and born and raised in Amsterdam.
I used to love fishing but stopped doing this when I became a vegetarian some years ago.
Then I saw this video on youtube of people using a magnet to hunt for metal treasures and that's when I decided to start magnet fishing in our city waters. You wont believe what kind of metal stuff you fish out of our canals. It's the coolest eco-friendly amusement sport to do in Amsterdam. And it feels like a treasure hunt :)
Great, exciting fun for all ages.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will meet at one of the many many Bridges Amsterdam is rich, over one of our beautiful canals. This will almost always take place in the centre. Everyday this will be a different bridge to make sure there's always a catch ;) I will inform you on the day itself where we will meet up.

What an incredibly fun and unique experience! After our first attempts and the first few treasures, we actually ended up fishing out a perfectly functioning bicycle – and returned it to the original owner. Such a fun day!

Youri was a fantastic guide! He picked a really good location, told us stories from his previous experiences and gave us tips about how to increase our catches. We did this as a team event for my company and we all loved it. As a team of 8 people we pulled multiple bikes, a scooter and bunch of other small items. I'll never look at the Amsterdam canals in the same way. Thanks Youri!

Super fun! Youri is friendly and great to hang out with, and despite the cold we had tons of fun. Drew some crowds too -- other people wanted to know what we were looking for. Highly recommend!

We took my 11 year old niece magnet fishing with Youri, and it was great fun! She lives in Amsterdam, and we’re more like locals than tourists, and it was definitely a unique and unconventional experience compared to other activities available in the city. Youri was super friendly, and we could tell he wanted us to have a good experience. He even gave us some extra time when we realized we’d hooked an Amsterdammertje and really wanted to bring it up! Would recommend to anyone looking for a different type of Amsterdam experience.
