Oyster tour

Join the Tesselse Oesterman! During this approximately 1.5-hour oyster tour, oyster man Martin Zeeman shows you that oysters, cockles and periwinkles are there for the taking along the Wadden side of Texel. During the tour you will receive an explanation about the oyster and while enjoying a glass of bubbles there is of course time to taste it extensively. Please note: this excursion has a minimum number of ten people. In case of too few participants or bad weather you will hear at least 2 hours in advance whether the excursion can take place.
