things to do in Gdansk, Poland

- There are sightseeing ferries that leave from the sea-side end of Dlugi Targ in the Old Town, which give you very nice views of the Gda?sk harbour and shipyards, with destinations such as:
* around Gda?sk port
* to Westerplatte
* to Sopot and Gdynia. Bear in mind that many of the boats to Sopot, in particular, end up fully-booked and that you can't buy your ticket at the boat itself. This is a harsh lesson to learn when you have already waited in a huge queue. Tickets for the Sopot ferry must be purchased from an office directly across from the terminal.
* to Hel

- Make a canoe-tour through the canals
