CANNON SLOOP DIANA'S PUBLIC SAILINGS IN THE HELSINKI ARCHIPELAGO
Phone:: 09 6899 9850
Cannon Sloop Diana's public sailings are historic cannon sloop cruises on Suomenlinna's fortress islands.
The voyage is led by no other than the most accomplished Admiral Chapman, who takes the passengers through times in an entertaining fashion, introducing them to the famous fortress and life in the navy.
The participants have the opportunity to assist the crew in raising and lowering the sails, and the most courageous ones can join forces with their fellow traveller and try rowing with the oars. The sailing voyage offers fascinating history and combines elements of drama tour, relaxed outdoor activity and sightseeing boat cruise. Welcome aboard!
Duration and point of departure:
The duration of the sailing or rowing tour is approx. 1 h 45 min. Sailings depart from Suomenlinna’s Artillery Bay (in Finnish Tykistölahti). You can reach Suomenlinna on JT-Line’s water bus or HSL’s ferry from the Market Square (the boat trip is not included in the ticket price).
Diana is an open boat, so dressing according to weather conditions (sun, rain, wind) is important. Due to the wind, it may be cold at sea even on a warm day. It is good to wear a warm and relaxed outfit, as well as flat shoes. 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.
Private tours are organised on request.
