We’ve placed several plastic walls in our rescueboat. Our rescueboat has a maximum capacity of 12 passengers.
The boat has been divided in 3 sections, allowing 4 passengers per section.
Because of this we can take up to three separate groups per expedition.
We charge a minimum of 3 passengers per booking.
Join us on our rescueboat and come closer to the seals than ever! Sail out with a small group of max 12 persons on your own private seal expedition.
You’ll sail across the Waddensea to one of the sandbanks where the seals rest. Thanks to the small size of the boat we can come real close.

Seal Rescueboat Expedition
Join us on our rescueboat and come closer to the seals than ever! Sail out with a small intimate group of 12 persons tops on your very own private seal expedition.
We will meet you at Waddenpavilion De Noorman where you can safely leave your personal belongings. After we’ll get on the boat at the docks across De Noorman and set sail towards the Waddensea.
Once at sea the skipper will bring you to one of the sandbanks at an easy pace where you can spot the seals. During the trip the skipper will tell you all about this stunning UNESCO World Heritage area.
Once we get to the right spot we will try to get as close to the seals as we can. Since the rescueboat is rather small and agile we can come very close. We’ll stay there for about 15 minutes giving you more than enough time to get a real good look.
Afterwards we’ll head back to De Noorman at an easy pace. There you can, at the terrace of by the open fire, enjoy drinks and reflect on the special meet with these stunning animals.
On request this expedition is suited for the less-abled.
