De Robbenboot specializes in various cruises on the Wad, such as company outings and special dinners on the water. This trip takes about two and a half hours. In addition, the boat makes crossings between the islands in high season. You can see these as day trips, but can also be used to get from one island to another.
In the autumn and winter months it is not an option to sail between these islands on a ferry. If you wish, it is best to try to use a water taxi.
The Robbenboot is the most practical and economical way to sail between Schiermonnikoog and Ameland. Due to the limited sailings, it is advisable to plan this well.
