Boat trips to the sea

Spend a day at sea, in the unique archipelago off Hamina or the outer archipelago in the Gulf of Finland National Park! Relax, refresh and enjoy the naturally beautiful archipelago, which is a piece of the most wonderful Hamina. If you wish, we can also customize the excursion for you according to your wishes!

Excursions to the sea are great for companies, for example for customer events and for families or, for example, a group of friends.
A high-quality Targa 32 boat and a skilled skipper will take you to the island of your choice in the Eastern Gulf of Finland or just to the sea.

Experience a unique trip to the sea and enjoy the wonderful scenery and sea air of the Eastern Gulf of Finland.

If you want a day at sea, the crown is a comfortable hotel stay in the circular city and a good night's sleep - as well as the opportunity to take a sauna and relax in SpahotelHamina's pool section and the new outdoor pool area. Enjoy the atmosphere of a world-class small town and the hotel's delicious buffet breakfast.
