Really enjoyable trip on a Summer's day and especially to a very important area of history - an area where the first shots of the second world war were carried out. Westerplatte has a very sombre feel. It isn't very well signposted so given you have an hour only, it may feel awkward wandering around but it seemed hard to... More

If you want to see more of the shipyards; get right inside the heart of it all then take a Westerplatte cruise. The cost is relatively cheap and you can catch the boat right from the city centre on the hour. The whole journey to Westerplatte takes about an hour and takes you right through the shipyards and past the... More

We took the ferry for this trip but you can also take the pirate ships. They both leave from the embankment just past the " Green Gate" and before you get to the Old Crane. The ticket office is easy to find and the return trip cost 40 PLN (zolte) This was money well spent in my opinion. The trip... More

The docks are an awesome sight the scale of which is mind blowing. Interesting photo opportunities. A must see if you have an interest in the historical significance of the area.

We payed 40 zloty each for this boat ride . We were told that we'd have an hour there . Off we went . Now if you like looking at cranes , docks & rusty old ships this is right up your street ! It was grey and depressing and lasted ages . There was full commentary in polish .... More

We purchased a ticket very clear that we would "sail over" - spend an hour sightseeing Westerplatte - and catch the next "sail back" to Gdansk. When we arrived in Westerplatte we were informed that we must stay aboard or not get back. You can imagine how disappointed we were. No effort or offer was made to remedy or address... More

We made the cruise on "Black Pearl" starting nearby Zuraw. Good looking ship, good guide, nice crew. And we could take the dogs on board.
