Great experience, boats with space for 20 people, not cheap but recommendable, nice to see the Schären from the waterfront side

Im from Stockholm and I really wished this attraction could have been really cool and make all tourist visits to Stockholm even more memorable. And sure, when entering the site you feel .. yeah, this will be loads of fun! You put on some professional safety gear etc and sit down in the boat. After 10 minutes of slow cruising out of the speed limited area you will feel 30 seconds of thrill when the boat accelerates.... But then... nothing more. Just another 80 minutes of boring boating where 75% of the time in the boat is just slow cruising on speed limited waters. The captain says you will go 45 knots but I saw on the GPS the boat never went faster than 41.7 knots. You pay about 50 euro's for this tourist trap and I would not say its worth it. When taking off the protective gear you might notice the overall had a bad smell and eventually made stains to your white clothes (because of rain making the overall wet and the waterproofing didnt work that well) ... not what you expected :/

Excellent! A tour and a mild adrenaline trip all in one!

You get to see quite a bit of the coast of the archipelago around Stockholm, but as the rib boats are fast you cover a lot of ground in the time.

On the way back to the city there's also a section up one of the rivers/canals.

It's an interesting and fun ride!

If you are pushed on time and have the budget then this is a great way to see the archipelago and the beautiful houses dotted around the hills and islands. You are unlikely to get wet and have little chance of being thrilled and you certainly will not learn anything beyond what you already know about the area. The 'Captain' climbs aboard, starts the engines and you're off. Not a hint of interaction, a welcome, anything. You are handed a laminated map of the route and have to interpret things as best you can. It is a stretch to call it a 90 minute ride, particularly when your speed is limited in and out of the main port. This is a missed opportunity from the boat company to enhance the experience and make it something people will remember and talk about, but then maybe they do not want it to be more than a boat ride.

a great way to sightsee and visit the beautiful archipelagos around Stockholm... on a high speed Rigid Inflatable Boat! You get suited up in wet-proof suits and sit in a RIB-boat with at least six other people in one boat. It's not a leisure, scenic cruise because you definitely get to ride some waves. But it's also not
river rafting. so much fun, gotta try it at least once!
