Discover Texel’s Wad

1 August 2017

There’s so much experience on Texel. But don’t forget to also explore Texel’s western side, where the island borders the Waddenzee. Here are three tips for undertaking a very special outing on the Wadden coast.

Outings on the Texel Wad

  1. RIB experience
    RIB stands for Rigid Inflatable Boat, a seaworthy type of inflatable boat with a rigid bottom and air-filled sides. Adding one or more powerful motors turns the RIB into a manoeuvrable speedboat. You can ride in one of these powerboats on Texel. With a maximum of 10 people and 350 horsepower you can zoom across the Wadden, or mudflat shallows. A truly unique experience!

  2. Harvest oysters
    Oysters are there for the picking on the Texel Wad, but you do need to know where to look. Together with Texel oysterman Martin you undertake an excursion to the best oyster beds alongside the Wadden dyke. Naturally you’ll also taste the oysters, with a glass of bubbly. That’s really enjoying the Wadden!

  3. Watch seals
    The boat ‘Het Sop’ departs from Oudeschild daily. This relatively small boat takes you to the sandbanks in the Waddenzee where the seals like to stay. The more curious seals dare to actually approach the boat. The trip takes an hour, and booking is advisable.
