Boat tours

In the centre you will learn everything about the seals and their habitat: the Wadden Sea. On our boat you can really visit this area! See seals in the wild while our guide tells you all about this unique nature area. It is for a reason that it has been listed by UNESCO as World Heritage! We offer several boat trips to experience the Wadden region.

Please note: no seals are released during the tours on this page. Do you want to join a seal release? Check here for more information about seal releases!
