TESO (Texels Eigen Stoomboot Onderneming) provides the crossing between Den Helder (‘the other side’) and Texel. The ferry service runs daily from early in the morning until late in the evening and departs every hour from Texel and every half hour from Den Helder. The last ferry departs from Texel at 9 p.m., from Den Helder the last ferry leaves at 9:30 p.m. On busy days, TESO deploys an extra ferry and sails a half-hourly service from both directions.
Do you make sure that you are at the ferry well in time? It is always advisable not to go for the last ferry (9:30 p.m.) due to any delay along the way. The ticket purchased online or at the counter is always a return ticket. You can throw this away or keep it for the scrapbook. You will no longer need it on the way back.
More information about the timetable can be found on the TESO website. You can also buy an online ticket here.
