All aboard!                                       

On the first day, when you board the ship in Enkhuizen around 16:00, you will meet the crew and your fellow passengers and have the opportunity to explore this handsome town in the evening. After the first night in your cabin, you will sail or cycle to the splendid fishing harbour of Den Oever, then cross the Wadden Sea to reach the first island, Texel.

Seal spotting

Day three is reserved for exploring Texel and enjoying its gorgeous nature and sweeping views. The programme also includes a visit to the seal centre or the island’s traditional beer brewery. After Texel, the ship will navigate between the Wadden Sea sandbanks to Terschelling, which has among others the natural reserve De Boschplaat to offer, with a great variety of unique birds.

Vlieland or Friesland?

The last island to be visited is Vlieland, a small but pleasant island where everything can be explored by bicycle. If the tides or wind make Vlieland unreachable, the trip may be diverted to Friesland instead. On the 7th day of the journey, the ship will take you back to Enkhuizen for one last night aboard the ship. Next morning, it’s time for goodbyes, and you will have a new unforgettable experience to look back on.
