Leisure Fleets

Vessels up to 24m length overall.

Upon arrival


Leisure and tourist boats are to be docked on the inner side of our tourist pier.

You can see the designated spot for docking on the map marked «AVAILABLE» in green.

The Tourist pier is an unsheltered dock unprotected from weather and drifting ice. Docked vessels must therefore have available crew to move the vessel at the request of the Port Control.

Docking fees and payment

Leisure fleets and vessels <24m pay quay fees and other services by the ticket machine on the shoreside or by using the GoMarina app.

All payments are due within 30 minutes of arrival. Common waste is included in the quay fee.

Vessels docked at the diesel filling area for refueling for less than 30 minutes are not required to pay the quay fee as long as the Port authorities are notified of this.
