Ecomare is much more than an attraction to go through mindlessly, you can learn a lot and come to understand how important the sea is and all life that lives in the sea. They do a lot of good things and deserve anyone's support. Even our 11 month old granddaughter watched the fish with amazement.
I used to go here as a kid on our summer holidays. Went back as a 32 year old and it was fantastic. There's multiple basins, they now have porpoises too, not just seals and birds. There's a lot to see inside as well. Very impressed with the new whale room with lots of skeletons of different whales. You could... 更多
Here you find everything about sealife and nature from Texel and other isles. Very good for children's education and even for yours. Nice to visit on a rainy day and find out what life on an isle can be interesting. Of course the sealions and others are very pretty to see.

Nice little sea museum with a busy aquarium and sea-lions to see. This activity should be planned on a rainy day but of course can be appreciated with good weather :-)
on a rainy day in Texel, we visited Ecomare and it was nice to see the love for animals that all the staff has in this place. go there and thank these people
The visit to Ecomare is worth it and, furthermore, the money is used to host and cure hurt animals, like seals, porpoises, gannets, etc... The sea aquarium is particularly interesting as well as the 5 KM walk in the dunes behind Ecomare.
If you visit Texel you should defenitely visit Ecomare. A place where they nurse wounded or sick seals, seabirds and porpoises back to health. Some of them even live there permanantly.
Eco Mare should not be confused with Sea World and its ilk. The mission is to rescue seals and porpoises that are ill,injured or prematurely separated from their mothers. They work to return the animals to the wild when possible. There is also a fine museum and great dune trail with interactive features.
