Nature education activities
on Zandvoort beach

(The crew of)
Bram -the pirate- offers honest nature excursions, workshops, and training sessions about the elements, nature's forces, sustainability, and self-sufficient living for all ages. You can come to us for fun and educational activities on the beach of Zandvoort.

We are happy to receive you for a children's party, family outing, or a fun gathering of colleagues or friends. We guide schools and classes with nature education packages at your location and on the beach.

We not only offer fun, entertainment and transportation. No... we also have a mission! And that is that every participant goes home with a 'scoop' of knowledge about the local nature.

Are you curious about what we can teach you?!

    "You’ve never been on a nature tour quite like this one! Bram, the Climate Pirate will take you on a trip in his beach wagon to explore the amazing nature on Amsterdam beach. There are a few options for tours, including a beachcombing excursion, a shrimp fishing session where Bram will show you the skills he learned from his father and a treasure hunt where you can work together on beach-themed puzzles and find the treasure.
    Bram’s tours are fun for all ages – everyone in our group really loved the experience and we all learned something new. My favourite new fact is that dolphins eat jellyfish tentacles to get high! - Helen on her holidays"

"The Pirate"

  • September 2023
    "What a fantastic afternoon my 9-year-old daughter had with her 10 friends! We were all very pleasantly surprised by the cart, the “real” pirate and Bram's enormous amount of knowledge and stories! Both adults and kids LOVED it! Thank you very much! We definitely recommend it to everyone! - Smit"
    "Louis and his 9 fellow pirates look back with great pleasure on THE children's party of the year! What a great experience for this group of boys aged 5-6. Adventurous and educational from start to finish! Everyone hung on the lips of this tough pirate. Highly recommended! - Majella"
  • August 2023
    "I did the pirate excursion with 9 children aged 7 years. What a party! Bram the climate pirate is very good with children, they hung on his every word. And how much he knows about everything you can find on the beach and in the sea. The boys are still talking about it, telling whoever will listen that your hands are the best shovels and belt weed is useful for fastening your trousers. - Jolanda"

"The Shrimpfisher"

  • May 2023
    We have i.v.m. a Family Event with us 19 people (and children) made a covered wagon ride with Bram de Piraat in May 2023. In short it was fantastic. Everyone loved it, including the adults. Bram is a born Pirate and knows better than anyone how to entertain, motivate and inspire a group of different ages. A true professional who is a role model (in my opinion) for everyone who works in the leisure industry. I can recommend Bram and his organization without any doubt, give it a try and you won't be disappointed, I promise! - Alan

      "Bram Molenaar opens the doors to a world that remains hidden to many. Enlightenment and a nature experience by the sea with a high fun factor! With a passion as deep as the sea itself, he leads visitors to nature experiences that go far beyond an ordinary walk on the beach. It's like walking through a living history book, where every page, every stone and every shell has a story to tell. Mega, fantastic! - Tanja (Article on"

We are starting this wild (foraging) season with a beautiful romantic blossom: the magnolia. Many people have a magnolia tree in their garden, but don't realize that the flowers are edible or that you can make a delicious tea or syrup from them!
