Visited Giethoorn, small canal/no cars village in the north of Netherlands of 2700 residents and over a million visitors per year. Lovely spot but too many crazies that have never driven a boat (or kayak) before.

There were three kayaks in the water and none had a clue. Locals were giving instructions from their houses and boats to get them out of the way as blocking the canal.

The water is a gorgeous colour and so clear. Not surprised it’s cold though! Looks good weather for your jaunt. :)

Considering the distance from Amsterdam, I'm going to say no unless you get there and hire boat/in water about 9-10am so you're before the bus crowd or as late as possible. It's really crowded and lots of nupties that never driven a boat before so there are traffic jams in the water. It must be horrible during summer
