Ships ahoy

For those who prefer their own company or for groups who want a bit of peace and quiet, there are plenty of places around the coast to choose from.

Renting a boat makes it possible to pop off for a picnic on an island where you are guaranteed not to see another soul.

Boat rental outlets also offer fishing trips to proven waters in the Helsinki area.

A sightseeing trip by boat is one of the best ways to get to know Helsinki and its history.

You can step on board at several places, for example in the Market Square and at the Merisatama quay referred to earlier.

You can choose between a number of companies and routes for archipelago cruises.

Some companies offer lunch or dinner cruises, and the ticket prices start at 15 to 20 euros.

Summer Helsinki is a dream destination for anyone who is into sailing.

Local yacht clubs have numerous marinas and harbours with guest facilities, in the south, west, and eastern parts of the city, and there are also chandlers and boat supplies stores close by.
