Waddensea UNESCO World Heritage Site
Upon arrival at the harbor, we will board the ship that takes us onto the Waddensea. The Waddensea is the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world. It is a refuge for a huge number of animals, including marine mammals such as seals and porpoises. The Waddensea World Heritage area is one of the most important wetlands for waterbirds on earth. The Waddensea is a calm sea with hardly any risk of uncomfortable swell.

Exploring the Island of Texel
We will set sail to the biggest Dutch Wadden island of Texel. On the island, there will be plenty of time to explore the historic villages, the beach and dunes. This island is famous for its incredibly beautiful nature, and is a paradise for bird watchers! We will even get a great view of the Wadden Sea at low tide.

Lunch in a historic village
Half way during the day we will enjoy a lovely lunch in one of the historic villages. Please notify us in advance if you have any dietary requirements. At the end of the afternoon we will set sail for home again, arriving in Amsterdam around 6 PM.
