Full description
Your vessel for the tour is a replica model of an antique, wooden galley boat, which would have been widely used in Gdansk during the 18th century. The cruise departs from the former Imperial Shipyard where the production of submarine u-boats took place during WW2. From your expert local guide, learn about this fascinating period of time and how it impacted the shipping industry in Gdansk.

As you explore the shipyard, which is situated next to the current shipbuilding yard, you have the unique opportunity to admire cranes, specialized ships, and exclusive yachts. The shipyard has been previously inaccessible to residents and tourists for over 173 years and can only be reached by boat.

During the tour, discover the fascinating landscape and rich-history of the Gdansk Shipyard, the Remontowa, the city’s former shipyard, and the Isle of Ostrow.
