Prices and tickets
Duration and point of departure
The duration of the sailing is approximately 1 hour 45 min. All sailings depart from Artillery Bay in Suomenlinna. Most cruises end in the same place in Suomenlinna but the 17:45 departure ends in Halkolaituri in Kruununhaka (Kruununhaka, Pohjoisranta, Helsinki).
Diana is an open boat, so dressing according to weather conditions is important. Due to the wind, it may be cold at sea even on a warm day. It is good to have a warm and relaxed casual outfit, as well as flat shoes, with you. In case of rain, it is good to bring a raincoat. It is also worth taking a bottle of water with you. Children can participate only with an adult.
