If you can't take a trip on one of the big boats going to Gdansk or Sopot, don't despair. You can still enjoy a round boat trip into the open sea on one of the smaller boats. They are there off season as well and for the small sum of 10 (for 30 min.) or 15 (for 45 min.) zloties will take you along the coast to see the war time shipwrecks, the beaches and the lighthouse at Hel. We chose the Cpt. Morgan, a fishing boat built of wood after the Viking designs. It was my birthday and, coincidentally, the boat turned out to be exactly my age (well, not to the day, but anyway). Beautifully renovated (I wish I could undergo this as well), it is now used for boat trips, fishing trips for groups, trips organised to watch sunset or sunrise at sea. I somehow don't believe I would get up that early but even by day we greatly enjoyed the rocking of the boat to the sound of traditional shanties, with the wind in our faces and the sun shining brightly. The boating fan that I am, I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate my birthday.
