Boating

Taivallahti marina

The coastal location of Helsinki offers great opportunities for boating. Boat harbours are managed by the Sports Services of Helsinki and several boat clubs and associations.  

The city’s guest harbour is located at Katajanokka right next to the Kauppatori plaza and its varied services. The Suomenlinna Fortress, Pihlajasaari and Valkosaari also offer guest harbour berths.

Announcement for applicants of winter storage places of boats

Due to the introduction of a new system, customer service for berth reservations is backed up, and the processing of winter storage places on hoisting order areas is impossible to hold on schedule. Therefore, we will use the old practice for one more season.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THOSE WISHING TO STORE THEIR BOAT ON HOISTING ORDER AREAS, INCLUDING THOSE WHO ALREADY APPLIED FOR A PLACE ONLINE:

1. Look for a suitable spot for your boat on the hoisting order area. The western hoisting order areas are Hernesaari, Pajalahti, Kaisaniemi, and Lähteelä, and the eastern ones are Ruusuniemi I and II, Puotila, Marjaniemi, and Strömsinlahti.

2. Once you find a suitable place, come to the boat berth reservations office to pay for the winter storage (card payments only). We are open Mon–Fri 9–16 at Paavo Nurmen kuja 1 E, 00250 Helsinki. Once you have paid, you will receive a sticker proving your right for winter storage.

3. Hoist your boat on the area and attach the sticker on a visible place on your boat or docking equipment.

The application for client-specific square spaces remains online at venepaikat.hel.fi. The number of square spaces is limited, and due to the large number of applicants, we cannot grant everyone a square space.

Ahti will help discovering Helsinki archipelago with one app

Helsinki City is developing a new service that gathers the possibilities of archipelago in one single platform. Ahti is a mobile optimized web page where user can find information, services, routes and for example boat rides. Idea is to inspire people to go and explore the possibilities of Helsinki archipelago, whether you are a boat owner or not.

Ahti is now in its second staging version and collecting feedback. You can test the beta version at ahti.app. If feedback is good, Ahti is planned to be ready for Helsinki Biennial in summer 2020.
