    Harbor

    by Skeptic-jr Updated Jul 16, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A few piers cut the Sea from the Gdansk Bay. There are harbors: tourist, trade, fish, navy... You can go on the piers, catch the ferry to Gdansk, Sopot or Gdynia (about 10 euro), rent a motor boat, admire yachts or just listen how waves hums.

    Fishery Museum

    Museum in Hel

    The museum is located in the gothic post-evangelical church from 16th century. After WW 2nd museum - now you can see there almost everything: pictures, tables, models, old exhibits of boats, trawlers, fish and other animals (e.g. porpoise, Baltic whales, related to dolphin).

    But probably the most attractive for statistic tourist is the tower of the former church, from where there is a nice view of the town, haven and "small beach".

    Entrance (2004): ~1 euro / person (1,5 with entering the tower). Special charge for photo/video.

    Museum of Fishing

    by katmag Updated Mar 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the former historic, 15th c. church, the Museum of Fishery is seated. At the Museum, you can see the only open-air display of old fishing boats in Poland. Close by is also the seal aquarium where you can see the baltic seals, and buy all kinds of seal-inspired stuffed animals and t-shirts to help the cause. The shop that donates its proceeds to the seal cause is "Jantar" on ul. Wiejska 121.

    Cruise Ship "HEL"

    by katmag Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This rusty wreck is located on the pier. Unfortunately, you won't be able to take a lovely picture like this one, because the wreck has been scrapped. The pier is huge, and serves as the docks and harbor for Hel. Here you can check out everyone else's boat, and also catch one of the touristy ships that take people on a little tour around the peninsula, or to Sopot, Gdansk, or Gdynia.

    Excursion Ship "Sandra"

    by katmag Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a few ships leaving every hour from the pier that take you on a trip around the peninsula. Believe me, you'll hear it loud and clear when they're leaving thanks to their megaphone advertisements. Sandra costs $3.75 and the trip is an hour long. It's pretty fun, but gets very cold sometimes. For that cheap, it's worth a try! You buy the tickets right on board. If you want to take a ship to Gdynia, Sopot or Gdansk, however, you have to buy your ticket in the little booth at the entrance to the pier.

    Strolling through the main street you will find some renovated Fisher Houses. Have a look inside. In some of them there are souvenir shops.

    Strolls on the shore

    Baltic beach

    For this purpose try for example go in evening at the "Great Beach". Of course, sunset on the sea is a kind of banality, but it is still a must-see.

    Pier

    Here's as good of a shot as I got of the pier. It's very big, and on a clear day you can see Poland on the other side of the gulf from the right side.

    The town was cool, but I was there on a day when the fishery museum was completely covered up for renovation. The most beautiful building in town, and I didn't get to see it. :(
