Boater’s instructions and use of saunas

When moving on a boat, it is necessary to know at least the basic rules for your own safety and that of others – just like in road traffic, but the risks and also the rules are different on the water. Careful equipment, gaining experience and becoming familiar with the rules of the sea routes are part of a safe boating culture.


NOTE! Are you familiar with the diving flag?


The use of ports is based on the boaters’ own initiative and working together. It is important to consider other boaters.


Sauna and area fees

Some ports have a sauna. Reservation lists for sauna shifts can be found at the saunas.

Sauna and pier fees are collected from users to cover the costs of firewood maintenance at excursion ports. The payment can be made with the MobilePay application or by bank transfer to the recreation area foundation’s bank account FI78 5094 0020 1804 99.
