Boating and sea rescue

It doesn’t take many hours to travel by boat from Sweden or the Finnish mainland to Åland, but it surely is a memorable trip.

Respect the enviroment

Now and in the future, Åland wants to be able to invite all visitors to a clean and fresh nature with clear and wonderful water. All boats, regardless of size, are bound by law to empty their wastewater in tanks provided in the harbours. Emptying wastewater in the waters surrounding Åland is prohibited.

Recycling stations and wastewater tanks are provided in the guest harbours and service harbours in Åland.

For further information please contact The Åland government’s Environment section, tel. +358 18 25 000


If you have an accident, it’s important that the Coast Guard know where your boat is. That’s why you should use the official fairways marked on the nautical charts.
