The excursion to Westerplatte is useless: you can go there by bus and that allows you to have more time on the spot. The one to Hel - I did it. The place is nice. However, the people from the ticket office are very unfriendly,...More

This is a trip from the Golden gate to Westerplatte and back. You can see the ship yard and marinas. The trip itself is quite nice but the commentary is in Polish.

A very pleasant tour through the harbour and shipyard to Westerplatte, with some explanations in Polish and German. Payment at the ticket office by cash only, but there's an ATM and exchange office nearby. Ships (not new, but perfectly fine) depart once an hour.

I booked tickets to travel to Hel from Gdansk. The experience was fantastic. It is slightly expensive so I suggest using this transport for only way.

Great value. Great boat. Great staff. Nice bar. Wonderful views and interesting sights. The only slight downside was the on-board commentary was in Polish and German only, no English.
