Whale Watching Tour

‘Observing NOT Disturbing'
Experience a close encounter with the gentle giants of the ocean by joining us on an informative, educational and magical whale watching trip. The boat is licensed to approach the whales up to
50m, and they can then decide whether or not to come closer and investigate, being naturally curious, they usually come right up to the boat.

With a qualified, registered skipper and whale specialist as your guide, including translations in Dutch and German you are sure to have a unique experience at sea.
