Could anyone advise as to the best way of travelling between Helsinki and Tallinn. I understand that there are ferrys and a hydofoil in operation. Which is the quicker/cheaper option and how do you book?
Any info would be greatly appreciated

You can choose between the faster boats (super sea cats, operated by silja line) or other cruises by viking line and cheaper ones by eckero line. There are smaller ferries as well that can be taken from the Olympia terminal in Helsinki. U can check out silja line and the other lines on the net. Search with google or try

ide recommend the viking line - its cheaper. But be warned i got stuck in a storm and got sick - along with the entire ship - for 3 hours! terrible.

Theres also a Helicopter that takes 20 min. awesome! but its expensive - i dont recommend unless, ofcourse, you're a Bond Villian! ;)
