Sailing holiday to the islands - As soon as you start sailing on the Wadden you immediately experience the vastness and silence of this exceptional nature reserve. The Wadden Sea Region is still one of the few nature reserves with enormous scale and openness by Dutch standards. This is very special from a national and European perspective.
This area is characterized by a landscape that is constantly in motion. Sea, wind and sand have free rein, so that the islands, the sandbanks and the channels are constantly changing. The Wadden area is a place that you must experience. It is nature that determines your path here. You depend on the tide and the flow of the water. Sailing is different every day, even for experienced skippers who have been sailing here for decades, a sailing holiday to the islands is never boring.
Fall dry and spend the night
With a flat-bottomed ship it is possible to fall dry as soon as it becomes low water. The skipper anchors the ship above a beautiful sandbar and then you can enjoy the view while the water slowly sinks. After a few hours, with a little luck, the ship will be completely dry and you can step off the ship onto the sandbar. Spending the night in the Wadden area is also very special. You are not bothered by light pollution, cars or neighbors. Only you and the boat you came with.
