Round trip to the island of Naissaar. 2h30 in all. The Bay of Tallinn is of little interest except that you can see the pointed roofs of the churches. On the other hand, it is very nice to go for a ride on the Baltic Sea and to see the island of Naissaar. Very well organized, easy to access.

Great early activity

We did this on our first night in Tallinn, and would say it’s a great way to get an overview of the city and also to relax (particularly if you get in during the afternoon). There isn’t a spoken guide, but actually the maps they give you let you take it all in at your own pace

Great! Gladly again!

Very nice and well-informed captain, willing to explain, about both the ship and Tallinn and all the conditions in the Tallinn Bay, reasonable prices on board, but above all, SUPER MUSIC. Thank you Captain!

Great view from the open deck, comfortable to spend time. There are warm blankets, you can order drinks. Friendly captain. We will be happy to come back again!

Our guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and also shared some personal stories, which all made for a vivid and exciting tour.
