Add To Plan

A short walk from your ship brings you to the speed boat. After changing into appropriate waterproof clothing, which is provided for you, you will begin your exhilarating ride.

Start off cruising toward the center of the city, making your way past the embassy park, Suomenlinna Island Fortress and Open-Air Market.

Pass impressive icebreaker ships as you continue through the narrow strait of "Kustaanmiekka." Then, it will be time to open the throttle for a chance to experience the scenic archipelago at speeds up to 40 knots. Zipping through the water, you will pass large and small islands and view Finnish summer homes, some dating to the 19th century.

After reaching thrilling speeds, your boat will come ashore at a private summer cottage. Your host will tell you about the local history and the Finnish way of life. You will enjoy Finnish-style summer refreshments, grilled sausages and authentic Finnish beer. After reboarding your boat, you will cruise back to the city passing a modern high-tech center and a residential area.

Your boating adventure concludes at the dock, where you'll walk back to the ship.
