The oyster safari of THE WADDEN SEA CENTRE is an exceptional experience. We are out where the tide rules, and where sky and sea melts together. Oysters are everywhere on the oyster reefs. The birds, wind, water and unique landscape create a very special atmosphere.
The tour starts with an introduction on THE WADDEN SEA CENTRE. Afterwards waders are handed out, and we will drive in our own cars to the dike. From here we walk across the seabed for one of the oyster reef and mussel beds - a one of a kind oyster tour and Wadden Sea experience.
Participation demands that you are healthy and in normal good shape. If you order tickets for others, we expect, you to inform them about this.
The seabed is soft in some places and the oysters are heavy carrying home. To get to the oyster reeff and home again we will be walking 6 km on the seabed and 2 km through water - perhaps reaching your navel - while wearing waders. This trip is normally not suitable for children and elderly. To join this tour one needs to be at least 150 cm high and able to walk 8 km.
