Unique half day seal safari at the UNESCO World Heritage site Waddensea.

Experience the amazing beauty of the unique mud flats at the UNESCO world heritage site Waddensea. Join us on our ship to go seal spotting on the mudflats of an empty sea. Listen to the thousands of birds that stop here during their migration. Enjoy the picturesque traditional towns along the IJsselmeer coast. Capture yourself on a selfie next to the famous enclosing dike.


This half day small group heritage adventure will take you from Amsterdam to the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world. We will pick you up right in the center of Amsterdam in the morning and drive you through the beautiful Dutch country side: land claimed from the sea; past farms, villages and windmills.

Upon arrival, we will board our ship that takes us onto the Waddensea. Because of its unique coastal wetlands and tidal system, it is a refuge for a huge number of animals, including marine mammals such as the harbour seals, grey seals and harbour porpoises. The Waddensea World Heritage area is a crucial stopover for millions of migrating birds. The Waddensea is a calm sea with hardly any risk of uncomfortable swell. We will sail along the famous enclosing dike between Noord Holland and Friesland, which protects the low country against flooding.

Once back in the harbor we will drive through the beautiful 17th century village of Twisk to the historic town of Medemblik on the IJsselmeer coast. You will have some time to wander the narrow streets, visit the windmill, brewery or the castle, shop or have lunch!
