Tour ferry "Mandøpigen"
Book a special boat trip - experience the seals, oysters and birds of the Wadden Sea very close

We call 3 different places:
Juvre on Romo
Ribe Waterway Lock
You can see the exact boarding points on maps by clicking here [Map] Oyster Safari is a trip of approx. 4 hours duration. We sail out to the oyster banks in the Wadden Sea, along the way we stop at the sandbanks where we know that the seals tend to rest / sunbathe. At a suitable distance there will be good opportunity to see / film the seals. We have waders, buckets and knives for everyone, so we can get off the boat and pick oysters at the oyster bank. Back on the boat you can taste your fresh oysters and we serve a glass of bubbles. Seal safari is a trip of approx. 3 hours duration. We sail out into the Wadden Sea to the sandbanks where we know that the seals tend to rest / sunbathe. At a suitable distance there will be good opportunity to see / film the seals. Seals are curious and will often swim very close to the boat. Island hop is a trip of approx. 2 hours. The trip always goes to or from Mandø - with Ribe Kammersluse or Juvre on Rømø as another port.
It is free and obvious to bring bicycles on this trip.
NB: There must be a minimum of 4 people registered for the tours
It is said that it is quite impossible to travel in the Wadden Sea: there is too little water for you to sail - and there is too much water for you to drive. And it's a pity because there is so much to see and experience in the vast area, the Wadden Sea National Park, which is on UNESCO's World Heritage list.
B&B Mandø has now made this possible with the "Mandøpigen" tour ferry, which is a flat-bottomed, relatively light vessel that can effortlessly glide over flat-water areas, and which is at the same time stable in the deep tidal currents that intersect the Wadden Sea.
Due to the shallow Wadden Sea, there is no port on Mandø. Therefore, it is necessary that the "Mandøpigen" can both sail on very shallow water and drive the last stretch into the dry beach. So that's why we also equipped the "Mandøpigen" with wheels.
