The main ports in Poland are Gdańsk, Gdynia, Szczecin and Świnoujście. Apart from these important ports there are also numerous marinas for yachting enthusiasts to call at.
The main ports
The Port of Gdańsk is the largest Polish port. It is divided into two major parts: the first part is the Internal Port, the second – the North Port. Visitors to Gdańsk arrive at the modern terminal and the connection with the city centre of Gdańsk is established by a comprehensive network of public bus lines.
The Port of Gdynia is easily accessible from the sea as well as from the city owing to favourable transport connections. Similar to the Port of Gdańsk, the Port of Gdynia is open for commuter ships as well.
The Port of Szczecin has been, for some time now, in close cooperation with the Port of Świnoujście. There has been an extensive communication link created between these two cities, which is very convenient for tourists.
What are marinas and what do they offer?
Yachts can call at marinas which are ports for yachts, sailing boats and other small watercraft. The marinas are well-located as they are mostly situated in the vicinity of city centres. Apart from the largest and the most popular marinas in Poland, in the main port cities, there are marinas situated in smaller towns and harbours, such as Kołobrzeg, Ustka, Darłowo, Łeba and others. They are fully-equipped with electricity, lighting, water and sanitary facilities that yachtsmen (and yachtswomen) can make use of.
How to get from the city centre to the port?
Getting to the ports is not particularly difficult as the way is well indicated. Just follow the ship-owner logo signs. Ship-owners also organise bus services with their own buses from bus or railway stations to the port.
