Tallinn Ferry Terminal Reviews
Tallinn Passanger Ferry Terminal Nov 23, 2014
In my opinion the vast majority of visitors traveling onward from Tallinn go by ship, and it's no wonder - the city has excellent, affordable ferry connections to Helsinki, Stockholm and Saint Petersburg. On the Tallinn-Helsinki route, you have the choice between large car ferries, which make the crossing in about two hours (76 km), and fast ferries (hydrofoils and catamarans), which usually take only 1.5 hours, but are seasonal and don't run in all weather conditions. Ferries leave from various terminals of the city's two passenger harbors, clustered just outside Old Town.
Ferry terminal D is very clean and convenient for tourist, there are stores and restaurants for waiting passengers and left luggage facilities including reasonable priced self luggage lockers for day trippers. I saw the terminal often gets crowded with package tour people arriving from different destinations. I was taking a ferry from Tallinn to Helsinki, I bought the ticket from the ticketing booth at the terminal for 43 Euro. Ferry service to Helsinki was available through out the day, approximately every 2 hour interval.
The ticketing and passenger boarding process was smooth and once on the ferry, I dropped my luggage at the left luggage room with little money and then free to move around the Ferry without any worry. Wi-Fi was free but the food on board was expensive (for me). I enjoyed staying in the outside under the Sun, moving back and fourth between upper and lower deck to make my shots. Met few American tourists from New Jersey en route from St. Petersburg to Helsinki. It was a great experience for me traveling from Tallinn to Helsinki by Ferry.
