Discover Szczecin... from the waterside
Why not rent a motorboat and cruise around the Oder or Lake Dąbie instead of taking a walk, going to the cinema or taking a bike trip? Żegluga Szczecińska offers seasonal motorboat rental services for residents and tourists. Larger groups can rent a catamaran as well.
With a motorboat you can reach spots that are otherwise inaccessible by foot, car or bike. There are many more things worth seeing other than the city's panorama: the backwater spots along the Święta River and Wydrnik Canal, known as the Venice of Szczecin, Lake Dąbie, and the many canals and islands. A motorboat cruise is also a great opportunity to watch wildlife, including herons, white-tailed eagles, beavers, otters and rare plant species.
Each of our four motorboats can accommodate up to 5 people. Thanks to their small engines, no motorboat licence is required, which means that virtually any adult can drive one of them. Of course there is mandatory training on boat manoeuvring and safety before the cruise.
The motorboats are moored next to the harbourmaster's office in Gdynia Boulevard (3 Zbożowa Street). The motorboat rental is open daily from 10 am to 7 pm (motorboats must be returned by 7 pm).
If you would like to rent a motorboat, we recommend you book it in advance by contacting the harbourmaster at +48 734 401 410. The rental fee is PLN 70 for the first hour, PLN 60 for every hour afterwards and PLN 400 for all day, regardless of the number of passengers (up to 5).
Żegluga Szczecińska also offers cruises in the “Telimena” catamaran, a compact and stable motor-powered vessel that offers a high level of comfort and can accommodate up to 12 people. It was made in the US and uses an aluminium catamaran-type hull. Thanks to its small draft, it can navigate even extremely shallow waters. The catamaran hull is one of the safest hull designs out there.
“Telimena” is powered by a low-noise, economical 50 HP engine and has a maximum speed of 25 km/h. It has been fitted with comfortable sofas, a table, a washbasin and a number of lockers. The boat also has a canopy for protection from rain and sunlight. It can be used for short cruises on calm waters, ensuring comfort and safety.
Small special events can be arranged on the catamaran.
Charter cruise price:
- catamaran charter with skipper – PLN 300 for the first hour, PLN 250 for every hour afterwards.
The catamaran is moored at the Passenger Quay near the Sea Station (7 Jana z Kolna Street). All cruises must be booked in advance. Bookings can be made by phone: +48 728 942 732.
Żegluga Szczecińska is happy to offer its rental services to all residents and tourists who would like to explore Szczecin from the waterside perspective.
