Smuggler's Evening Sightseeing

Prohibition Act-themed sightseeing cruise - Outer deck seat

The Prohibition Act, which was in force between 1919 and 1932, created an unprecedented level of smuggling. During the cruise, you will hear stories about perhaps the most famous smuggler, Algoth Niska, and how the police and e.g. customs vessel Nordvakten tried to prevent the sale and importation of the Finnish spirit pirtu.

During the 2.5-hour evening cruise, we will tour the beaches of the wonderful western archipelago aboard m/s Natalia. The cruise starts from the famous Helsinki Market Square, and along the way, in addition to the western archipelago, you will admire, among other things, the beautiful Sea Harbour, the neighbourhoods of Eira and Kaivopuisto, as well as the wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site Suomenlinna Sea Fortress.

During the cruise, you can enjoy the most amazing island views on the ship's large sun deck and feel the atmosphere of a summer terrace with the best sea view while listening to interesting stories from the prohibition era! The ship's café-bar serves snacks and refreshing refreshments throughout the cruise.

Children 0-5 years old cruise free of charge in the company of an adult.
