Fishing for Shrimps and spotting seals

20150319_144416 (Custom)

Almost daily we depart for a 2 hour boat trip on the Wadden Sea with our two original Texel Fishing cutters, the TX20 (Walrus) and the TX10 (Emmie).
During the trip we will fish for shrimps and of course we hope to spot a few seals. They often lie on the tidal flats along the coast. Sometimes they swim near the boat! However, due to the natural circumstances it could happen that we do not spot a seal.

Not only on deck there are things to do and see, also below in the cosy and warm cabin you can relax and get coffee, tea or the famous liquor of Texel; ‘ Juttertje’. You can also find the toilets here and the TX10 has an elevator for disabled passengers.
