By Sea

Ships from Helsinki bring thousands of travellers to Tallinn's busy passenger port each day. There is an overnight ferry link with Stockholm and a semi-weekly cruise ship connection to St Petersburg. Large cruise ships stop in Tallinn from spring until autumn. Tallinn also welcomes visitors arriving with yachts.


CONNECTIONS

Ferries cross the Gulf of Finland between Tallinn and Helsinki several times a day, covering the distance in roughly 2 to 3 hours. From late spring to late autumn, high-speed vessels also operate on the route, reducing travel time to just 1.5 hours.

Ferries between Tallinn and Stockholm depart every evening, with the trip taking approximately 15 hours.

All St Peter Line's cruise ships make a Baltic Sea circuit twice per week and can be used for one-way overnight travel from Tallinn to St Petersburg. A return trip is possible by bus or train. In some cases, continuing cruise passengers can stay in St Petersburg visa-free.

The world's largest cruise agencies have included Tallinn in their itineraries – the city receives over 300 calls per season, making it the third busiest cruise destination in the Baltic Sea region.

TO GET TO THE CITY CENTRE

Passenger terminals are located within walking distance of the medieval Old Town.
Bus no. 2 connects the port’s A-terminal to the city centre and airport, departing approximately every 30 minutes from 7 am until midnight. Tickets can be bought from the driver for €1.60.
A taxi from the terminal to the city centre costs about €5 to €10.
