24 hours on the Wad

This summer you can experience a unique sailing arrangement: 24 hours on the Wad.
In this day you will discover all aspects of the Wadden Sea. You board one of the ships around noon in the beautiful old seaport of Harlingen.

Travel information

The skipper and sailor give you a warm welcome and after you have furnished your cabin you will receive an explanation about the ins and outs on board a traditional sailing ship. The ship then leaves the port and the sails are set. After a nice sailing trip the anchor goes out at the place where the ship is going to dry up. When evening falls, the ship lies on a wide sandbank and you can take a beautiful walk on the mudflats.

When it is dark the water comes back and the ship starts floating again. You fall asleep with the sound of rippling water. In the early morning the ship falls dry again and you can experience the mudflats again but in the early morning.
In the course of the morning the ship comes loose again and the sailing trip back to Harlingen begins.
