Enjoy a half-day at sea spotting seals, porpoises and many more animals in their natural environment in the Wadden Sea, as well as visiting the town of Medemblik.
Wadden Sea Cruise and Seal Safari
After meeting at the indicated time at Amsterdam River Cruise Dock, taking a bus from here to the coast of the Wadden Sea. During this 90-minute bus trip, you'll enjoy Holland's rural beauty filled with farms, little villas, and of course the famous windmills.
Once you've reached the coast, we'll climb on board our boat to cruise the Wadden Sea. From the boat, you'll be able to see grey seals, porpoises and other animals that take refuge in the area's coastal wetlands and tidal system.
The Wadden Sea, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, is a crucial stop for millions of migratory birds. Plus, it's a calm sea with almost no risk of waves. During the cruise, we'll sail along the famous surrounding levee between North Holland and Friesland, which protects the lowlands from flooding.
The boat trip will end in the same harbor from which we set sail. Back on land, we'll pass through the beautiful 17th-century village of Twisk, to the historic town of Medemblik on the IJsselmeer coast. You'll have free time to stroll through the charming narrow streets, visit the windmill, the brewery, the castle, shop or have a bite to eat.
Then from Medemblik, we begin our return journey by bus to Amsterdam.
