Great value, simple online booking and hassle free crossing. Ship has lots of facilities to help pass the time. Don't know if any better or worse than the numerous other operators plying this route, but would guess (being one of the larger operators and also taking vehicles) it would be more likely to run in bad weather than some of...

Ekerö Line is a good option for a day trip to Tallinn. They have a good buffet restaurant serving breakfast and dinner. I recommend this as the selections are good and Ekerö prides in preparing the meals onboard. Weekends are busy and booking a table for the meals is wise. If you have luggage use the lockers or book a... More

Took the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn on Eckero line and it was a great and hassle free way between destinations. The trip was just over 2 hours a d departed and arrived on time. The ferry itself was comfortable with plenty of seating and entertainment to keep you occupied for two hours. The band playing in the front bar... More

There were also live entertainment on the way back to Helsinki. Did not check out the whole liner as we were enjoying the cold wind on... More

For only 19EUR, I took a 2 hour ferry ride on a cruise liner from Helsinki to Tallinn. This was probably the best 19EUR I’ve ever spent. Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 12.39.20 AM There are actually several ferry companies that go between Finland and Estonia. I priced them out and Eckero happened to have the best price for the time...

A day in Tallinn but also two, with Eckero Line. Clean Ship, many shops, supermarket, restaurants, concert, entertainment for adults and children. It is an opportunity to enjoy and relax, waiting to know the extraordinary Tallin.

We came from Tallinn to Helsinki on this ship. It was clean and efficient but had a party atmosphere about it with bars and (loud) live music. That being said, it was quick and got us there in 2 hours. The mad rush to get off is best avoided by sitting still until it subsides a bit.

Porridge breakfast surprised me with its cheap price and saved my otherwise bad morning.. During our way back from Tallinn to Helsinki we decided to check out the buffet and oh my, oh my how good it was! As a friend of fish foods the starter table would've been enough to fill my belly: smoked salmon, cold salted salmon, 2... More

Was a bit wary about booking Eckero because it was the cheapest operator from 3 options. However should not have been, lovely ferry, only on it for a couple of hours, and a live band at the front for part of the crossing. Eckero does not have the best time slots, BUT it leaves from the quieter West port docks... More
