No queues, free admission, open day and night, seven days a week, 365 days a year. We’re talking about the Terschelling marina where there’s always something to see; from luxury yachts to old sailing ships and of course the Doeksen Shipping Company ferries.
When you hear the ship’s horn, it’s time to rush to the port to watch the spectacle of holidaymakers arriving or leaving and tourists enjoying a portion of battered cod or hake from the two fish stalls. A good spot from which to watch it all is Het Wakend Oog café, which used to be a guardhouse. In the marina for transient boats, things are a bit quieter, but you can still see some lovely craft. Likewise on the Willem Bartenszkade, where old sailing ships berth.
Nice to know!
In the harbour, there are various tourist boats offering excursions. A must is the seals tour in the Talisman which involves a 30-minute sail to a sandbank where seals can be seen sunbathing. You get close enough to them so you won’t need binoculars.
