Seal safaris and trips to Tunø.
Once M/S Tunø was the lifeline to the outside world for the inhabitants of the island Tunø.
Today the ship is a sailing piece of cultural history, and a brilliant way to document a bygone era of passenger shipping to the Danish islands.
Each year thousands of happy people are sailing with the well preserved vintage ship.
In 2005 the ship returned to it’s old waters and is now sailing between Samsø and Tunø. Skibsbevaringsfonden (Marine Conservation Fund) has declared M/S Tunø worthy of conservation in order to ensure the ship as a lasting monument.
The vessel may carry 38 passengers and are licensed by Søfartsstyrelsen (Danish Maritime Authority).
All summer M/S Tunø sail three daily trips to the seal sanctuary at the stone reef Bosserne. M/S Tunø sail every Tuesday and Wednesday. The trip goes to the islands east of Samsø: Vejrø, Kyholm, Besser Rev and Lindholm. The ship stops at the stone reef Bosserne where the many seal in the sanctuary can be admired.
Seals are curious and they can get quite close to the ship. By Kyholm the captain of the ship will tell the fascinating history of Kyholm as a quarantine station. The trip lasts approx. 2.5 hours.
Thursday throughout the summer M/S Tunø sail trips to our neighboring island Tunø. The ship’s old home port. Tunø is a car-free island with 120 inhabitants and a popular destination for sailors. On the island you will find a grocery store, an inn, restaurant, miniature golf, tennis, bike rental and summer shops. Tunø has a lovely varied countryside and you can walk around the entire island in three hours.
