School trip on the water

Book a school trip on a ship and take a trip with your class or group, or with the whole school to the Wadden Sea. The possibilities are very diverse. Whether you come sailing with one class or an entire school, can arrange this for you. It often happens that a school chooses to sail with several ships. Each group sails on its own ship and then you can make a nice trip on the Waddenzee or IJsselmeer in 5 days, where the classes meet again in the ports.

An example of a school trip

School trip sailing Wadden SeaTo give you an idea of ​​the possibilities, here is an example of what a school trip can look like:
On Monday you arrive in Harlingen and you are welcome on board from 10.00. After everyone has found a cabin and the provisions and luggage are on board, the sailor will give you an extensive tour of the ship and instruction about the sails. Then the ship sails out of the harbor and you can put the sailing lessons into practice. In the afternoon you moor in, for example, the port of Vlieland and you can walk through the dunes and the beach towards the village.

On Tuesday you will sail towards a sandbank where you will dry up with the ship. The ship is then on a sandbank. At low tide you can walk around the ship and see the life on the bottom of the Wadden Sea up close (see video). On Tuesday night you stay overnight at sea in good weather and the next morning the skipper sets sail for Terschelling. There you can go shopping or visit a disco where many other students are also present.

Thursday on the way to Texel to visit the seal center Ecomare. Friday, already the last day, you will sail back to Harlingen. A versatile and adventurous school trip.

Several possibilities

This trip can also be divided in two if a school has less budget or wants to spend less time with the students. This way you can also change groups on Wednesday. Then you leave on Monday with group 1 and then you change the classes on Wednesday and sail the rest of the midweek with group 2. The big advantage of this is that you only have to book 1 ship and you only have to put the groceries and other supplies on board 1 times.

Group tour young people

In addition to the school trips, the ships are of course also very suitable for associations that want to spend a few days with the youngsters. The ships are regularly rented by sports clubs who, for example, want a nice end to the season with the youngsters. A weekend sailing with a tjalk to the Wadden Island guarantees a successful youth trip.
