Oyster safari in the Wadden Sea

Distance: 0.14 Km

There are many culinary experiences, but nothing beats consuming a newly opened oyster in the fantastic landscape under the high skies of the Wadden Sea. Season October to April. Take a nature guide on an oyster trip and pick Pacific oysters in the Wadden Sea. It is recommended to collect oysters only at the cool time of year, ie. the season starts in mid-October when the water temperature has dropped, until spring - until the end of April. By opting out of the warmest months, you minimize the risk of the oysters containing toxic planktonic algae.

At your own risk
Eating oysters collected in the Wadden Sea takes place at your own risk.

The height difference between the ebb and flow can be as much as two meters, and the Wadden Sea hike should only take place together with a nature guide, who can bring the hikers ashore before the tide comes.

Guided oyster tours with the Wadden Sea Center
The Wadden Sea Center's oyster safari is an experience in itself. We are out where the tide determines and where sky and sea go together. At the mussel banks, there are oysters everywhere. The birds, the wind, the water and the unique landscape create a very special atmosphere. The tour starts with an introduction to the Wadden Sea Center. Subsequently, waders are handed out, and we drive in our own cars to the dike. From here we go out over the seabed with a course towards the mussel banks - an oyster trip and Wadden Sea experience of the very big ones. Buy your ticket here

Oyster Safari with the tour boat Mandøpigen
A trip of approx. 3 hours duration. We sail out to the oyster banks in the Wadden Sea, where we usually see seals along the way. We have waders, buckets and knives for everyone, so we at the oyster bank can get off the boat and pick oysters, back on the boat you can taste your fresh oysters and we serve a glass of bubbles for this.
