Seal Watching Tours:
Seal Safari (1,5 hours with guarantee)
Our boat offers room for a small group, making the trip a personal and exclusive feeling.
A toilet is present, a large deck with panoramic view, and a cabin where you can comfortably sit inside
In the Dutch Wadden and North Sea area live 2 breeds of seals that we can encounter on the trip, the 'harbor seal' and the 'gray seal'.
In calm weather it is even possible to encounter a porpoise, the smallest tooth whale on earth.
Seal Safari (1,5 hours)
Join us for 90 minutes filled with adventure!
Join this select group (12 people or under) as we sail to the seals that live off the coast of Texel. A special 90 minute tour takes us to the nature area and uninhabited island of Noorderhaaks (also known as The Raging Ball among locals) or to Vogelzand on the shallow, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Marine Programme.
The Sop is not a large boat, which means we can even reach shallow depths and see the animals up-close. This special seal tour therefore guarantees spotting many grey and common seals. Curious seals will sometimes swim right next to the boat, which makes this tour a unique experience! You can take gorgeous pictures and videos from the panorama deck, or you can enjoy the warmth and comfort of the cabin (which also offers a restroom).
On top of all this, the trip to and back is a true speed boat experience! We sail at 23 knots from the harbor of Oudeschild and back again. This is quite the experience in and of itself!
We are the only ones on Texel to give a 100% seal spotting guarantee. No seals = money back!
Reservations and more information:
(9.00 till 19.00)
When we can't sail out, for instance due to bad weather, we highly recommend a visit to Ecomare, the centre for the Wadden Sea and North Sea. Ecomare is beautifully located and offers a wealth of information about seals.
To see actual seals in their natural environment, our vessel 'Het Sop' ships out to find them in the Wadden Sea and North Sea.
We recommend reserving in advance,
