Full description
Discover Gdańsk from the water on board a replica of a Polish river ship used for over 400 years. Used mainly in the 18th century, this intimate, wooden, and spacious 12-seater boat will take you to places large ships are unable to go and thanks to the low number of passengers, you'll feel at ease and special. Start the cruise from the former Gdańsk Shipyard that once was a workplace for nearly 18,000 people and unavailable to visitors for over 170 years. Gdansk Shipyard was established after 1945 in place of the former German shipyards. It was here that the "Solidarity" movement began in 1980, leading to the fall of communism in Poland. Next, cruise on Motława River in the center of the Old Town. You’ll see many tourist attractions, including the ruins of the Teutonic castle, water gates leading to the city, the famous wooden crane from the 15th century, charming old tenement houses, and their new setting. Follow a route that will also show you monuments and new buildings of Ołowianka and the Granary Island. This trip is also a unique and only opportunity to see up close specialist vessels, Gdansk port cranes that are the symbol of the city, and the internal quay of the Port of Gdansk.

    We just got on a cruise with only 2 people, which in our opinion should be a must-see when visiting Gdańsk. Let's call the boat driver a guide who in an interesting and nice way tells everything we can see on the route of the cruise. I recommend it because it is not expensive and it is really worth using.

    The trip gave us an opportunity to see the city from a completely different perspective. The guide was very nice and friendly, he knew a lot and presented many interesting facts about the city. We did the trip in October and it was a little bit windy but the guides were prepared and had blankets for everyone. We highly recommend it!

    Gdańsk Galley boat Tour 2019

    Our guide and captain was very happy and jovial guy with a wealth of knowledge of the boat years and the buildings of Gdańsk. The galley boat was a different experience and amazingly the boat was built by the captain. The tour gave a great view of Gdańsk from the river. I would highly recommend this tour.
