Seals Watching tours

We are the only passenger ship in this unique area in the northern Wadden Sea. In the ‘Eierlandse Gat’, seals and gray seals live in their natural habitat. Because of the unique area large groups of seals live there. With running water, large groups of seals crawl on the sandbank to rest and enjoy the sun.

Did you know this is the only area where there are large groups in Sea by Texel? Do you want to be certian you see seals? Then join the Seal Watching trip with 'De Vriendschap'. The captain let the ferry float past the sandbanks. The seals know the blue Silhoutte of 'De Vriendschap', so the ship can get very close to the animals. The seals are used to our boat and often watch curiously around when we arrive.

The journey takes about 60 minutes. We tell/inform you about the seals when were there. You also have enough time to make beautiful pictures.

Tours fill up quicky, make sure to book early. You can book and pay online on our reservationpage
