Docking

There are several marinas but the city-run guest harbour is the most convenient, although it gets very full in the high season. It is on the north bank of the Aura river.

It may be possible to anchor off one of the more remote islands, but those nearer the city are private.

For a full list of harbours in the area see www.guestharbours.fi.

Posted on behalf of Sven Hegelund, s/y Njord III
As you know, camping Gaz (butane) is not so easy to get in the Baltic. I am in Turku/Åbo in Finland and the harbourmaster of the yacht harbour on the North side of river Aura, managed to get some containers delivered to Turku from Helsinki and is planning to arrange for a small storage to be kept at the harbour or nearby for the benefit of guests at the yacht harbour.
