Island hopping

fun since ’85

Sail along the islands of the Wadden Sea


Sail and hop with us from island to island

Would you like to discover many islands during your holiday? Then the island hopping tour is the perfect cabin cruise for you! You will sail on a historic sailing ship together with other passengers over the UNESCO World Heritage Site Wadden Sea. We hop from island to island, where you can enjoy the beautiful nature, dunes and beaches. Each island has its own unique landscapes and attractions. What could be more delightful than a midweek wandering on the Wadden Sea, feeling the salty sea air through your hair, gazing at the horizon and all that in the company of other enthusiastic co-sailors.

Sailing Trip

The cabin cruises are planned on different ships. Our ships are comfortable and cosy and perfectly suitable for several people together. During the sailing you may help with the sailing (gladly). The sailor and the skipper will help you with instructions. During five days you will roam the Wadden Sea and hop from one island to another. On each island there are numerous activities to do. The skipper can help you find your way.

The route

On the Wadden Sea we live on the rhythm of the tide and the weather. That is why the exact route of the island hopping is discussed day by day. The skipper will explain to you the possibilities of the next island based on the weather conditions, tide

An example of the programme (note: this can also be completely different):

Day 1: From Harlingen to Texel
Texel is the most western and largest island and you can find almost everything here that the mainland has to offer. Besides the extensive beaches and varied natural landscapes, you can undertake a wide range of activities here. A visit to the Ecomare seal sanctuary is a must.

Day 2: From Texel to Vlieland
Vlieland is a beautiful idyllic, compact island. On Vlieland you really feel that you are in the middle of nature. One thing you should definitely do on Vlieland is take a ride with the Vliehors express. You ride with a horse and carriage over the beach to the very tip of Vlieland. There, you will find an abandoned rescue house with relics that were once jettisoned from the beach. Enjoy the vastness and beautiful views of the island.
Day 3: From Vlieland to Terschelling
Terschelling is probably the most popular island among holidaymakers. You can do so many things here, that you will not get bored easily. That is why you stay on this island for two days. This way you have enough time to discover the island. Make a nice bike ride from West-Terschelling to the outermost point in Oosterend and walk through Boschplaat nature reserve. Or stroll through the lively village streets of West, Midsland or Formerum.
Day 4: Spending on Terschelling
This day you can continue exploring the natural beauty of Terschelling and its lively character.
Day 5: Sailing back to Harlingen.
In the morning you can make a nice walk on the island. Afterwards we quietly sail back to Harlingen. In the afternoon you set foot on the mainland again after a wonderful midweek full of memories.
