Night cruise around shipyard

Take part in one of the best attractions in Gdańsk – a night cruise around the shipyard! This is the only and unique opportunity to see the shipyards and the Port of Gdansk illuminated by thousands of lights, and to witness work taking place in shipyards under the cover of night. A cruise full of interesting information in an intimate, spacious 12-person replica of the historic Galar boat. Our boat trip through the shipyard area is the only such attraction in Gdańsk that must be seen.

Night 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 and the “Remontowa” Shipyard are located, 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, and the night gives the shipyards a unique charm and atmosphere – you must see it in Gdańsk! Our cruise is a unique opportunity to see up close specialist ships, port cranes, which are the symbol of the city and the quay of the Port of Gdansk. End your cruise around the shipyard at the same location from which you departed.

The experience was excellent. The time spent really lasts the time mentioned in the offer. The guide was very friendly and explained the whole history of the places we passed. The boat is super safe and had blankets in case we felt cold during the tour.
