Destination Gotland ferries depart from the Swedish mainland ports of Nynäshamn and Oskarshamn and sail to Visby which is located on the west side of Gotland. With up to 18 rotations daily in the peak summer season, the crossing from Nynashamn takes just over 3 hours while from Oskarshamn it’s a little quicker at just under 3 hours.

Whether you want breakfast, a snack, a larger meal or just a coffee, you’ll be well looked after. The Food Market is always open from departure, irrespective of when you travel and the ship's restaurant serves food to suit all tastes and budgets, hot and cold.

The on board shop has a wide range of sweets, drinks, newspapers and magazines as well as a range of Gotlandish delicacies and souvenirs.

  • "1 ferry out of a 5 ferry trip"

    Clean, ran to schedule. No delays in boarding, very efficient service. Good choice of food available. Better signage of toilets needed, women were queuing a long way from the door. I found other toilets on the floor above but they weren't signposted.

  • "Plain sailing all the way !"

    It's very easy to book in . Once on board it's easy to find your designated seat . These are comfortable and excellent for having a short sleep en route . Good choice of food available . Everything spotlessly clean . Boarding and embarking trouble free but we did travel in the low season and the boats were barely a quarter full . Only complaint that the train back to Stockholm does not coincide with the arrival of the boat in Nynashamm ; we had to wait for 50 minutes for a connection .

  • "comfortable and convenient"

    Lovely ferry trip. On time, excellent seat near refreshments. Helpful staff, very supportive even though I speak no Swedish. This must be the best ferry I have ever been on.
