Zeebrugge: Seal Watching Boat Tour with Glass of Champagne

2. Zeebrugge: Seal Watching Boat Tour with Glass of Champagne

Receive a short instruction in the harbor of Zeebrugge before you board the open RIB boat to go on the Scheldt river to spot seals. They can be found in their natural habitat in the Westerscheldt. It is the ideal environment for these animals with clean water and plenty of space.  Observe the seals lying on dry banks or curiously swimming around the boat. The boat will bring you up close, while not disturbing the animals. Once the boat is close to the seals, you will receive a glass of champagne. If the group wants, the captain can increase the power on the way back with the boat going up to 80 km per hour for an exciting adrenaline rush.

Excellent, so glad we choose this over cruise excursion at double the price. Free shuttle from ship to terminal then we followed Instructions/directions to the ticket collection which were spot on and easy to follow. The two guys at ticket booth were hilarious and so friendly. Smooth 24min trip into Bruge and drop off point literally same place as cruise excursion. Pleasant 15 min walk through park and your into picturesque Bruge. Half hourly return shuttle, last one timed to get you back before ship departs. However we played safe and returned earlier so can’t comment on how busy last shuttle was. Totally recommend.

easy access service. We took the free shuttle bus to the cruise terminal, after exiting the terminal gate, turn left twice, you will find out the big wording -- CRUISE EXPRESS. Only 200 meter walking, you would not miss it.

The very best way to get to Brugge from your cruise ship. Just exit the cruise terminal and its there. Very reasonable price. The walk from the drop off point is at least 15 minutes through a park.

Well organised, friendly staff. Parking place easy to access to town centre.
