Estonia - Finland



We transport both passengers and cargo on the well developed Estonia-Finland route between Tallinn and Helsinki. Approximately 97% of Finnish tourists visiting Estonia arrive by ferry. We have a strong position on this route and currently operate the cruise ferry Silja Europa and the  high speed ro-pax ferries Star and Megastar on this route.

The cruise ferry Silja Europa currently departs once a day from both ports, having the evening departure from Helsinki. The voyage takes three and a half hours. Despite the short distance, Silja Europa offers a true short cruise experience during which passengers from Finland spend the evening and night on the cruise ferry and are able to spend several hours in Tallinn in the morning before the ship returns to Helsinki.

Additional services, primarily freight services between Muuga Harbour, the main cargo harbour for the Port of Tallinn, and Vuosaari Harbour, the cargo harbour for the Port of Helsinki, are provided by Sea Wind ro-pax ferry.

With the delivery of our new generation high speed ro-pax vessel Star in spring 2007 the new product Tallink Shuttle was launched. In winter 2017 the Shuttle service was added the other fast ferry - Megastar and Tallink now provides 10-12 fast ferry departures per day. The crossing is made in two hours and as such, the fast ferries are ideal for passengers who need to reach their destination quickly. As Star and Megastar have a high ice class. The fast ferry service offered between Tallinn-Helsinki is available all year around. Passengers on these vessels include business travellers, day cruisers and passengers with overnight hotel packages. Star and Superstar combine the comfort of a cruise ferry and the speed of a fast ferry and are also suitable for transporting heavier ro-ro cargo.

Estonia - Sweden

Currently we are the only operator of passenger services with daily departures between Estonia and Sweden. We operate two different routes Tallinn-Stockholm and Paldiski-Kapellskär between Estonia and Sweden.


Following the positive start and development on Paldiski-Kapellskär route since 1998, we started operations on Tallinn-Stockholm route in January 2001. On Tallinn-Stockholm route (directed through Mariehamn, Åland, to obtain the tax-free status for onboard shop sales), we currently operate two cruise ferries, Victoria I and Baltic Queen, with one daily departure by both cruise ferries from each port in the late afternoon. The duration of the voyage, including a short stop at Mariehamn, Åland, is approximately 16 hours and the ferries arrive to its destination the following morning.
The main product is a short cruise with two nights onboard the vessel and a day at the destination, at the same time one-way trips combined with a hotel package or a private car trip around the Baltic region are becoming increasingly popular as well.
Ro-ro cargo is transported on the car and cargo decks of both Victoria I and Baltic Queen.


We started our first Estonia-Sweden route in 1998 by commencing regular traffic on the Paldiski-Kapellskär route, where we currently operate one cargo vessel M/S Regal Star.


Between Finland and Sweden we currently operate on Turku-Stockholm and Helsinki-Stockholm routes, where our vessels sail under the brand of Silja Line.


The route from Turku to Stockholm is operated by Baltic Princess and Galaxy cruise ferries every day with a journey of 21 hours for the complete short cruise. 


On Helsinki-Stockholm route the overnight short cruise experience is provided by unique Silja Serenade and Silja Symphony cruise ferries. Passengers can choose either one way one-night cruise or a roundtrip two-night cruise.

Latvia – Sweden

Riga - Stockholm

We launched regular ferry service on Riga-Stockholm route in April 2006 with one vessel - the cruise ferry Regina Baltica. Since the launch of the route the there has been a large increase in passenger volumes. Currently we operate on Riga-Stockholm route with Romantika and Isabelle. 

In April 2007 Tallink added the second vessel to the route thus being able to provide daily departures from both destination ports. With the departure in the late afternoon the journey takes approximately 16 hours and the ferry arrives at its destination the following morning.
