We will guide you in learning boating!

A boating license is not mandatory in Finland, but obtaining one through SB is a good way to get started with safe boating. After completing the course, you will be ready to handle a boat in marked inland waterways using modern instruments. You can complete the theory portion of the course online. Practical boat handling and navigation exercises are done on the boat under supervision.

Charter boating in style!

If you want to enjoy enchanting scenery and holiday relaxation with a captain as your guide, leaving you to enjoy only boating and Lake Saimaa, a charter is the right choice for you.

Rent a new, high-quality excursion boat

Saimaa Boating's new and fully equipped excursion boats are the best way to enjoy boating on Lake Saimaa affordably. Rent only a boat or a boat with a skipper. You will have a free slip at SB's home marina during your rental time.

Boat time share - The easiest way to enjoy boating!

Enjoy boating affordably and easily. Finally, you and your family can have the use of a quality boat - at a sensible price. Saimaa Boating's boat share selection is the most comprehensive in the world. Choose the best size and type of boat for your needs, and the amount of time you would like to spend boating in the summer. We will handle everything else!



Boating with modern instruments is not mysterious, and does not require extensive training and experience. Our expert instructors will personally guide you into the world of boating. We have organised a basic course for SB skippers. If you do not have previous boating experience or are just starting to learn, we require that you attend the course. This increases water safety and ensures boating and docking safely. The practical portion of the course is always organised before the start of the boating season.

Students use SBC's equipment during the course, usually the exact type of boat in which you have purchased a share. The course, which lasts a day and a half, is 120 Euros for share owners and 450 Euros for others, inclusive of VAT. The price includes an overnight stay on the boat. You can also rent a double hotel room at SB's affordable price.
