From Terschelling to Ameland with the m.s. Ameland
The m.s. Ameland, also known as the Robbenboot, was specially made for sailing on the mudflats and is actually a tour boat. The reason that the boat is mentioned on this ferry website is because the Robbenboot also makes crossings between Ameland, Terschelling and Schiermonnikoog. This is therefore ideal for those who want to go island hopping on the Wadden Sea.
Tickets can be bought at: “De Noorman” at Volharding nr 2a opposite the KNRM building, near beach pole 33 in De Cocksdorp. This is also the place where the jetty is where you get on the boat. Tickets are also easy to order online.
Again, this website is only available in Dutch, so it's probably best to contact them yourself.
