The 90 minute cruise does include one small canal, but essentially it is a cruise around part of the archipelago close to Helsinki. You can sit inside the boat and view the scene through the window, or in the open air on the upper deck....More

The Canal Route is the only tour that can go through the narrow Degero Canal. You can see how people live by the water in their beautiful houses and saunas, so pretty. Some islands have public beaches so many people were swimming during the heatwave....More

Took the boat from the Market Square and I have to admit that the almost 2 hour boat ride was great with amazing views around the water bodies of Helsinki. However, it did turn boring sometimes. The information/commentary is in different languages and is played...More
