WHEN ARE YOU LAUNCHING?
The service has been soft launched in 2018, with tests continuing in Helsinki and Espoo in 2019 as the first cities to experiment with a new type of way to travel by sea.
IS IT SAFE?
To be able to provide services on the platform, the captain needs to fulfill all legal requirements. The requirements are the same for ordering boatrides anywhere and we do as much as we can to ensure passengers get the best rides possible. We also use ratings for both Passengers and Captains to ensure that users who act inappropriately are not able to use the service.
