A cruise around Shipyard

Take part in an incredibly interesting, full of information and unique sights cruise around Gdansk shipyards. The Galar cruise is the only possibility to experience such an attraction in Gdańsk. An intimate, spacious, 12-person replica of the historic Polish Galar boat, will take you on a unique cruise around Shipyard, during which you will discover the shipbuilding industry from the inside. You will sail a route inaccessible to other vessels, learn about the history of Gdańsk shipyards and see how the Gdańsk Shipyards and Repair Shipyard look today.

A cruise around Shipyard

Explore the Gdansk shipbuilding industry from the water level, aboard a replica of a Polish river boat that has been in use for over 400 years. Boats of this type were used mainly in the 18th century. Start your cruise from the Galar Gdański marina located at the Gdańsk shipyard, which used to be a workplace for almost 18,000 people and was unavailable to visitors for over 170 years. The Gdańsk shipyard was established after 1945 on the site of the former German shipyards. This is where the Solidarity movement comes from. This trade union, established in 1980, led to the fall of communism in Poland. Go around the Ostrów Island, where the Gdańsk Shipyard is located, and the Gdańsk Shipyard “Remontowa”, the fifth largest repair shipyard in the world. The Galar cruise is a unique opportunity to see the work of the shipyard from the inside. Different things happen in the shipyard with each voyage – new ships are built, new vessels are affected by repairs and inspections, and if you are lucky you may witness a side launch of a newly built vessel. A cruise around Shipyard is a unique opportunity to see up close specialized ships, port cranes, which are the symbol of the city and the quay of the Port of Gdansk. End your Galar cruise around Shipyard at the same location from which you departed.
