Sunbathing Seals

Seeing a few seals is certainly the cherry on top of your holiday on Terschelling.

Perhaps you’ll spot a few from the ferry, but you can also watch them up close during a seal spotting tour with the M.S. Talisman.

A seal spotting tour is an absolute must when you’re staying Terschelling, especially with children. If you’re lucky, the seals are curious and even swim up to the boat.

When staying on Terschelling, a seal spotting tour is really an absolute must. Especially with children, because they’ll be talking about it for weeks to come. The impressive trip starts in the harbour where you board the M.S. Talisman. You’ll then sail out onto the sea towards the sand flats where the seals enjoy sunbathing. The captain will tell you all about these beautiful creatures and their habitat. If you’re lucky, they’ll even swim to the boat, so there’s no need to bring binoculars.

Hey, did you know?

You can also go fishing with the M.S. Talisman. You can bring the caught fish (mackerel) to smoke or cook on the barbecue.
