We kayaked 6+km in light rain. It was good exercise and fun. Piotr was very patient and a gracious guide. I would do this tour again and would recommend this to anyone that is at least a little fit. You will have fun! There is a little shop near the kayak spot where you can buy cheap drinks and snacks too.

Exploring Gdansk from the water, by kayak, was a good idea. You can get to a historical site quickly and avoid the hustle and bustle. The weather played along, only the sunset wouldn't show itself. But the guide can't help that ...

Amazing experience from beginning to end!! Guide was very knowledgable and made it really easy for a relative newbie. Would definitely recommend and do so again whenever I am back in Poland!!

Friendly and helpful guides, with lots of information about the city. Best done during the summer as the sunset view is apparently a lot better, but was still worth it in October.

bellissima esperienza! la città è stupenda dai canali :)
