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!
