Rondvaartbedrijf Zeehond verzorgt al jaren rondvaarten met het schip ms Zeehond in het prachtige Waddengebied (Werelderfgoed Unesco) tussen Ameland en de Friese kust. Het is een mooi, en schoon schip welke altijd goed wordt onderhouden zodat o.a. de veiligheid van de passagiers ten alle tijden gewaarborgd is. Niets is mooier dan zeehonden van dichtbij te bekijken in hun eigen omgeving en de schipper vertelt onderweg interessante weetjes over de natuur, de zeehonden en Ameland. Het echte waddengevoel beleef je op de "Zeehond"!

Perfect trip, great boat, very nice hospitality! We have seen the seals, pretty close. On the way back the younger kids had their own hall of toys downstairs. Don't miss this trip! If you want to see the seals, make a trip with them.

What a wonderful trip! It takes approx 2 hours, very informative and the owners who run this are absolutely lovely and friendly people. There's enough time to properly watch the seals, you get really close to them without disrupting them in their natural habitat. A GREAT value for money

The trip starts at the harbour in Nes, near the ferry. The two hour round journey to Robben Eiland takes approximately 45 minutes each way, leaving a good 30 minutes for you to look out on and photograph the seals. Although the trip is certainly suitable for all ages, during the time near the island it is necessary that everyone... More

Went this morning with our two year old son. We did not visit the Schelpenbank, which was our intent as to fit our trip in our sons' nap schedule. The staff (family run) is very friendly, with a tour in Dutch and German on the sights along the way. The boat is stable, clean and spacious. It takes 45 minutes... More

We could enjoy a nice morning going to see the seals in their habitat. It has a nice children's area and nice place to have drinks. Out in the deck can be lovely.

You will be greeted with a smile and a friendly word by Adinda as you embark the boat. Dogs are welcome, they even get some fresh water aboard the boat. Captain Mario likes to crack a joke or two, in Dutch and German. Kids can go and play in the 'belly' of the boat. There are drinks and snacks available... More
