Your holiday starts as soon as you step onto the ferry to Texel! If your ferry trip gives you a taste for water-related activities, you're in luck, because Texel has a wide range of boat trips on offer.
Prawns, fish, seals and sandbank walks
Various boats head out from the port of Oudeschild on trips across the Waddenzee. Some sail on an almost daily basis. Step on board one of these boats, sail out of the sea gully and prepare to explore our unique World Heritage Site!
The TX10 Emmie and the TX20 Walrus are the ideal option for anyone wanting to fish for prawns and watch the seals. The tidal/mudflat walking trips organised in the TX 10 are not to be missed.
The TX44 organises ‘Wadden cruises’ for passengers wanting to watch the seals or travel to the port of Den Helder and include a demonstration of dragnet fishing.
The Egbertha tug, which dates back to 1930, is a great boat for seal watchers and also sails to the port of Den Helder.
