Shore Excursion Private Helsinki Boat Tour

Absorb the beauty of Helsinki's archipelago on a private boat trip, with me as your personal skipper at the helm. We will be out on the sea for three hours and one hour is reserved for seeing the sights in the city on foot. (Kruununhaka neighbourhood, the oldest part of Helsinki).

Settle aboard a comfortable day cruiser and enjoy the scenery and charms of some of the waterways and 330 islands lying off the Finnish capital. Cruise along canals to see historical Suomenlinna fortress.

Stop for a picnic, relax on the sands of Pihjalasaari island, or simply unwind on deck with family or friends — it's up to you. This is a private tour, so you can customize your itinerary to suit you.

We can visit all the attractions only accessible by boat. I will explain to you many alternatives from what you can choose where to go! Helsinki is a city by the sea, and it is best experienced from the sea! You can make a few stops on the way, at one of the islands you can enjoy a pic-nic.
