Saarte Liinid

Saarte Liinid is active since 1 October 1994. Our main fields of activity include the maintenance and development of our harbours. First of all it means ensuring safe navigation for ferries between the mainland and the islands. Saarte Liinid handles cargo and services passengers through the ports it administers in the most agreeable way for the passengers.

Who are we?
Saarte Liinid administers harbours and cargo and passenger transportation. There are ten ferry-harbours: Kuivastu, Virtsu, Heltermaa, Rohuküla, Sviby, Sõru, Triigi, Kihnu, Munalaid, Manilaid and Abruka, Naissaare. The larger ones have the conditions for receiving cargo ships.

Roomassaare Harbour is the largest cargo port in Saaremaa, where there are also quays for passenger ferries/ships, (oil) tankers, fishing boats, and (sailing) yachts. Ringsu Harbour is capable of servicing boats which secure Ringsu inhabitants communication with the mainland. It is also possible for other smaller boats to visit Ruhnu Harbour.

Saarte Liinid headquarters, situated in Kuressaare, is responsible for the general management of the company. The headquarters also organises its economic activity and plans and conducts the construction works of its harbours. Saarte Liinid is a public limited company the shares of which belong to the Republic of Estonia 100%.
