Ferries and Cruises Between Sweden and Estonia

There are regular passenger and cargo ferries from the Stockholm area to the Estonian ports of Tallinn and Paldiski. Ferries from Stockholm depart from the city center, as well as the nearby port of Kapellskär. Kapellskär is around 90km to the north of Stockholm itself. All ferries from Paldiski require a vehicle (a bike is also considered a vehicle as well). For passengers without a vehicle, there is an option operated by Tallink-Silja from the center of Stockholm to Tallinn directly. Other ferry operators have offered a route from Stockholm - Tallinn on a seasonal basis (such as Viking Line), though right now Tallink-Silja is the only option.
