About the Company
Boat on the grass is a family company which has been connected with the Elbląg Canal, locks and slipways for generations. We are fascinated by the Elbląg Canal and what it has to offer us.
During our cruises by boat on the grass, you have the opportunity to study a unique system of slipways and we have the opportunity to share our knowledge and experience in exceptional scenery of nature and hydraulic engineering.

The vessel was built in 1966 in the Warsaw River Shipyard. In the years 1966 to 1997, it served as a tourist boat in the Silesian Amusement Park in Chorzów. In the years 1997 – 2011, still as “Karolinka”, it provided cruises in the J. Ziętek Provincial Park of Culture and Recreation in Katowice.
In 2011, the vessel was purchased by our company. The boat was transported to Ostróda, where a thorough renovation and lifting took place. In 2017, the boat was launched again, this time as “Bursztyn”, for the provision of services on the Ostróda-Elbląg Canal.
