Sister mock pirate ships, Czarna Perła i Galeon Lew (English: The Black Pearl and The Lion Galleon) ferry people back and forth between Gdańsk waterfront and Westerplatte, departing close to the Green Gate (Polish: Zielona Brama). One ship leaves Gdańsk on the hour, every hour from 09:00 (subject to demand) through to 18:00 and departs Westerplatte on its return at 35 minutes past the hour. The cruise to Westerplatte takes about 50 minutes whereas the return trip is only 30 minutes and comes with a commentary in English, German and Polish as you cruise up to the place WWII began. While this is, of course, a great activity for kids, the bar on-deck allows parents another way to join in on the pirate spirit. In the evening, when cruises finish, these ships become floating taverns. All aboard!
