Actually our cruise was hilarious. We were expecting sightseeing but saw old, rusty ships and harbor area. We couldn't understand anything that came out of the loudspeakers. When heading back to Gdansk, a troubadour started to perform. The whole experience was... I don't know. Out...More

Bad service and no good feeling on board. The trip takes 35 minutes. The loud speakers are very poor and so is the English being spoken. Hence, we did not understand a word of what was said about the places we passed by. The boats...More

I took to first sail to Westerplatte at 10:00 AM. It takes 35 minutes to get there from Gdansk. The ship back goes every hour but you can't take any of them. You have to go back the first sail available giving you just one...More

We had a very pleasant boat trip with guided tour and traditional folk music. Very good value and a must for any visit to Gdansk.

The phony sailing ships are rather hokey, but the 1:20 trip was well worth it. The extensive shipyards and port facilities are impressive. Food and drink are served on board. It's optional whether one disembarks at Westerplatte and catches a later ship. The English commentary...More

Decent way to spend s few hours travelling up and down the Vistula to Westerplast. Good that it passes the shipyards which are quite interesting to see. We went on the modern boat and not the pretend pirate boat but still pleasant. Commentary was in...More

Very informative day out. Went from Gdansk to Westerplatte. We had lots of time to have a walk at Westerplatte and visited the outdoor display about the history of the town.

We went on the Black Pearl pirate ship cruise out to westerplatte. The cruise advertises a commentary in English. In reality, the sound system is so bad and the background noise on the ship too loud to hear anything - better stick to the guidebook....More

Very good ride up the river and interesting to see all the industrial side of gdansk! The only problem was there was no English on the boat so all the information given out we didn't understand but still highly recommended .
