Full description

Join a kayak tour and experience Gdansk by the water. Many tourists take ferry rides, but a kayak tour allows you to explore a side of the city most people don't see. Enjoy a beginner-friendly kayak tour with easy-to-learn techniques. Gain a different perspective on the historical value of the Main City, paddle through canals, and enjoy the freedom to access locations inaccessible to tourist ferries.  As you paddle down the river, pass two of Gdansk's main islands, Granary Island and Olowianka Island, and make your way past attractions such as The Crane, Olowianka Footbridge, the beautiful Radunia Canal, as well as Gdansk Shipyard, and the Polish Baltic Philharmonic.

We did a super guided kayak tour. We were very lucky to have a private tour and then also with a guide who spoke German very well. It was a little bit like paddling with friends. Great that it is possible to explore this great city in this way. Thanks!

The whole activity was amazing and so fun to do! Me and my partner went on a cold day of September but it was just the perfect weather for this activity. There were not much boats around and overall the whole experience was calm and relaxing. Embrace yourselves for a workout cause paddling for around 1 and a half hours it’s exhausting but Simon (the instructor) made so much fun, specially with my fear of deep waters. 100% recommend it!

Excellent guide, very friendly, relaxed and passionate.

The trip was excellent, fortunately for us there were only 4 of us on the excursion which made it like we were just out some some friends. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and relaxed and even took photos throughout the trip. Our guide was called Simon (I think ). He even helped one client back when she got tired by attaching a tow rope! Seeing the city from the river have a really nice and different perspective and I would highly recommend this trip and guide.
