National Park Oosterschelde is located in and around the water, the Oosterschelde. Here you can spot porpoises during the safari on excursion boat De Onrust or admire the many seals on the sandbanks. There is also plenty to see under the sea level. Because of the unique underwater life, the Oosterschelde is the ideal place for divers.
Grevelingenmeer is the largest saltwater lake in Western Europe. Through a rich underwater life it is a popular dive site. Because of the combination of wind and calm inland water, this is also the hotspot for kayaking, sailing and windsurfing.
