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!
