Next to the ferry port you will find a kind of mini Wadden Sea: the Mok Bay. At low tide you can walk on the seabed. That bottom is full of creepers! The shellfish, worms and snails are a tasty meal for many birds. Expedition Mokbaai is an active program in which you, just like the birds, look for the animals in the mudflats. We also all pull a large dragnet through the channel. The fish and shrimps have gathered in the water of the trench. Exciting what comes in the net! Join an expedition and experience the Mok Bay with all your senses. Start time: depending on the tide. Check the Ecomare website for current times. The excursions last 2 hours.
