A good thing if you want to see Helsinki from the water, absolutely recommendable. However, if you are not quite weatherproof/windproof, it is advisable to have a jacket or similar with you....we had a good deal of wind, which eventually blew through you so much that it got very fresh. The view from the water side is definitely worth it.

The ride along the coast of Helsinki was very relaxing and enjoyable. The crew was nice and helpful. Thankfully, the weather was great. I highly recommend carrying a windproof jacket and a cap even in the summer if you want to sit on the deck. A nice activity also for kids.

Easy to find the location to board the boat. The commentary was excellent. The ride was lovely. The only problem is if you sit on the left or right of the boat you can’t see the view on the other side (without standing on tip toes or moving to to the back) as the seats in the middle are elevated
