General information:
The fishing harbour was established in Orłowo in the 19th century. In 1829 fishermen Johann Adler established an inn at the mouth of small river Kacza, which was the first landmark at the settlers. In 1921 there lived seven fishermen families in Orłowo, and they used one sail fishing boat and thirteen row boats.
Orłowo is a S district of Gdynia situated at the foot of a steep cape-over 90 m high. About 3 cables northward of Orłowo is a picturesque elevation known as Redłowska Islet, which stretches over several km and ends abruptly in a steep slope in the centre of Gdynia.
In 1935 Orłowo was included in Gdynia as its district. Its shore descend steeply into the sea and its woods of mixed trees, with specimens of rare Swedish sorb-tree, are under special protection. There is a hill, known as Stone Hill, which is a splendid vantage point from where the town and harbour of Gdynia may be seen.
At Orłowo there is a pier built in 1934 that extends about 180m from the shore, which is used by visitors to go out for a walk.
Salmon nets are laid annually from mid January to mid May, in the area between the Gdynia inner anchorage and Orłowo, within 2 miles of the coast. In order to avoid damage to the nets during that period, vessels should keep clear of the area.
