Tours and transports to nearby islands
We offer tours in the Helsinki archipelago (starting from €199 / 60 min.). We also arrange transports to the nearby islands of Helsinki (starting from €99 / one way). Our boat can accommodate up to 9 passengers and you can also order delicious seaside snacks from us – or enjoy the delicacies of the wonderful seafront cafés and restaurants.
Enjoy chilled champagne on the waves
Fancy a wonderful evening out at sea with that someone special? We know the most beautiful spots and sheltered coves around Helsinki and are happy to whisk you and your loved one away to enjoy a glass of champagne at sunset. We also provide delicious packed lunch at request. (Please bring your own alcoholic beverages with you.)
Water sports available for all ages
We provide the opportunity to try various water sports. Our options include, for example, water skiing and tubing.
Island hopping that suits your schedule
If you wish to see a lot in one day, island hopping allows you to explore several islands and their restaurants and adventures during the same day.
Delicious seaside lunch baskets complete the experience
Don't miss out on our delicious lunch baskets that are offered upon request to enjoy by the sea.
Scattering of ashes at sea
The service includes transport to the official ash scattering area at sea as designated by the Helsinki municipality. There the ashes can be scattered peacefully while remembering the deceased. If the urn is approved to be sunk, then the whole urn can be sunk into the sea as well.
For the event you should reserve up to 1,5 hours and the boat accommodates 1-9 persons.
It is also possible to do ash scattering in Espoo municipal waters.
Create those special memories
Enjoy some of the most beautiful views of Finland and create unique and lasting memories on our boat trips.
We operate sustainably and care for the environment
Being responsible and operating in a environmentally-friendly way are important values to us. For example instead of using toxic paints the boat hull is mechanically washed 2-3 times during the season. Also operating a modern boat and motor allows for as low CO2 emissions as possible. With catering services we also favour local produce and partners.
Helsinki Cruising Charters is also a participant in Business Finland's Sustainable Travel Finland program and in August 2023 has been awarded The Good Travel Seal (www.goodtravelseal.com) for it's contribution to sustainable tourism.
We operate a brand new beautiful Finnish built Finnmaster T7 Day Cruiser that can accommodate up to nine passengers.
The modern and powerful 250hp engine enables various water sports activities as well as transporting larger groups with ease while keeping environmental impact as low as possible.
The fridge will keep your drinks cold and passengers also have access to a toilet, and the boat's canopy provides shelter from the elements. The on-board heater also allows for comfortable and enjoyable boat trips in early spring and late autumn.
Book a tour, a trip to an island or try some of our water sports. We can also tailor a boat trip to your wishes.
The port of departure is Linnanallas, Helsinki Market Square, but we are also happy to arrange another departure point within Helsinki.
Please bear in mind that you will be spending a lot of time outdoors. It is a good idea to carry an extra layer of clothing as it is typically colder at sea than on the mainland. Depending on the season, we recommend that you bring some sun protector, waterproof clothes or headgear to protect you from the elements.
