Seal tours Texel

Discover the mudflats on Texel with our seal tours!

oin a group of twelve people as we sail to the coast of Texel, where seals can be found. Enjoy a unique one-and-a-half-hour seal tour to the beautiful nature reserve and uninhabited island of Noorderhaaks.

Seal spotting on Texel

Spotting seals along the Texel coast is routine for us. We sail with our boat ‘Het Sop,’ which is not a large boat and can therefore navigate the shallows near the animals. The boat “Het Sop” is not a large boat and can therefore get close to the animals over the shallows. The special seal tours of “Het Sop” therefore guarantee spotting many common and gray seals. The panorama deck offers the opportunity to take the most beautiful photos and videos of the seal area. 

Very curious!

Curious seals regularly swim at the boat and make the trip a unique experience. You will also experience the effect of a speedboat during the trip: traveling to and from the port of Oudeschild with about twenty-three knots. An experience in itself!

Another possibility is a visit to “Vogelzand” on the mudflats: part of UNESCO World Heritage.
