Full description
Experience breathtaking views of the setting sun against the background of shipyard cranes. Discover Gdańsk from a water perspective onboard a replica of a Polish riverboat used for over 400 years. An intimate, wooden and spacious 12-seater boat will take you to places unavailable to large ships, and thanks to the low number of passengers, feel at ease and special. Start the cruise from the former areas of the Gdańsk Shipyard, which was unavailable to visitors for over 170 years. Next, go on a cruise on Motława - the center of the Old Town. 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 the Ołowianka Island and Granary Island. This trip is also a unique and only opportunity to see up close specialist vessels, Gdansk cranes.

We arrived very early as walked to the venue. Unfortunately I can’t remember our guide’s name but informed us that it was going to rain in approximately 15 minutes but forecast to clear up and he was bang on!! Able to have a drink in the café and keep dry until heavy shower passed. We were the only 2 British but he was excellent in telling us what we were passing and lots of information about The Cranes, The Floating Dock and the building of the extremely expensive Catamarans. The trip through the city, past the islands was also very informative, passing places you wouldn’t normally see, right to the end of the basin where there was a flood gate. On the way back we were dropped off nearer the centre which was a great help for my husband, as needs a stick for mobility.

I would highly recommend this tour in a historic Polish boat. This tour will cover most of the old town. The captain of the boat was very friendly and explained all the important historic buildings throughout the route. You would see some spectacular view of the old town from the river. If you are going in winter, get yourself a good jacket and a woolen cap to cover your head and ears.

A really great activity! Totally unique experience and a truly excellent way to see the city from a completely different perspective, low down on the water with nothing but the sound of the water lapping alongside. A very peaceful and relaxing tour taking in all the highlights of the city, the historic dockyards at sunset, the stunning old town and even up the river and out into the tranquility of the upper river, complete with ancient ramparts. Our guide was excellent and knowledgable - providing just the right amount of information as we went along! Superb. Couldn’t recommend it enough! Thank you
