What you'll do

Let's do some kayaking together to discover amazing Gdansk by kayak! Many tourists take ferry rides, but kayak tour allows you to explore the city most don’t see.

We will meet in kayak center in Gdansk Dokowa 1 street (historical shipyard area). We will start with short safety briefing. After that we can jump into kayaks and paddle to explore Gdansk by water!

We will paddle through the river Motlawa around two islands of Gdansk: Granary Island and Olowianka Island. Gdansk is quite uniquely located at the crossroads of sea and river routes, waterways of the Vistula river at the Baltic estuary, as well as the Radunia and Motlawa rivers. This had a significant impact on the city’s development. The daily living as shown in literature and drawings proves that water was the important element of the city’s life. It is important today to show Gdansk through its relation to water.

Kayak tour gives a different perspective on the historical value of the Main City. Paddling through the canals allows freedom to see places ferries cannot access. I will show you a completely different Gdansk to the one you’ve seen on land. Paddling in the city is a must-do!

That is really a must-Do when you visit Gdansk! Even if I was a little scared in the beginning of the tour, because I hadn’t much experience, I enjoyed the tour very much. Szymon was a very well informed and caring guide. You‘ll have a wonderful perspective, which you have just from the water side. I would definitively join this tour again.

My first Airbnb experience :) I recommend experiencing Gdansk from a Kayak. I never knew that the name cranes as we know it today originates from Gdansk.

Gdańsk is such an underestimated city and this kayaking experience makes it even more special. Szymon is an excellent instructor for me as a beginner and I feel safe and relaxed during the whole time, and fall in love with this sport immediately. The communication is also fluent and informative. I highly recommend Szymon’s kayaking tour!

This is a great opportunity to see Gdansk from an unique perspective. Szymon is a professional and competent host, though it was my first time doing kayak, thanks to him it has been very comfortable and I had any kind of problem.

Bardzo polecam tę atrakcję! Przemiły przewodnik bardzo otwarty oraz znający się na swoim fachu. Zobaczyliśmy Gdańsk z innej perspektywy co dało nam okazje to zobaczenia miejsc do których nie dotarlibyśmy na nogach. Świetna zabawa a przy okazji aktywie spędzony czas. Bez żadnego doświadczenia w kajakarstwie na spokojnie można pokonać trasę :)
