  • At Ecomare they know how to catch seals (different species) and seals and only if they are suitable they will be restored. The Sea aquarium is also worth a visit. Very educational design; Also for children.

  • Of course you come to watch some seals and of course you want to see the feeding. But the exhibition space inside is quite beautiful. Not only with beautiful, clean aquariums, but also the information that is shown is just nicely done. A lot of useful information about the origin of the Wadden Sea, the composition of biodiversity, but also about the threats as pollution have been made very clear. Very creative and interesting for everyone.

  • Its might be a fun place for kids. There is an aquarium with some fishes and a feeding show with Seals and porpoise dolphins. After the aquarium , you can walk around the ecomare which is a national forest. There is absolutely nothing to see unless you are lucky and spot some wild birds or hedgehogs. (We did) . I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a kid.
  • A bit hyped place . It is pretty expensive at 13.5 euros which is not worth the experience. There are few seals and small whales and have a good show on feeding these animals. But considering the distance and time taken to reach here, it is a bit of let down. If you are in Texel and has nothing else to do, this is an option. Could be a good outing for kids though.
