The fans are known as "Kadłuby" (The Hulls). Once one of the strongest fan groups in the 80's, as the team started to fall down the leagues only a handful of loyal supporters now remain in Gdynia and several smaller towns in the region.
In the past the fast used to have short-lived friendly relations with fans of Lech Poznań, Pogoń Lębork and Ferencváros at various points in their history. Currently they have good relations with fans of Kotwica Kołobrzeg and Cartusia Kartuzy.
The two Tricity derby rivals Lechia Gdańsk and Arka Gdynia are considered the most fierce. The games against Arka, also known as the Gdynia derby have a long history and the fans often contend for dominance in the city. The controversy surrounding the two club's stadium use is also a serious cause of tension between the two.
Due to Bałtyk languishing in the lower leagues for several years, the club has developed rivalries with other clubs, mainly Gryf Słupsk.
