“Nice Boat to Vaxholm”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We took this boat to Vaxholm and it was very pleasant. We were there early, so we got good seats on the boat and it was a gorgeous day. Everyone was in a great mood and I felt like it was a very Swedish thing to do. Lots of Swedish families taking the day trip to Vaxholm and enjoying the fabulous day. It was very easy to get this ferry back to Stockholm. All in all a very enjoyable day.

“Pleasant boat trip”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Nice way to spend 4 hours, cruising along on a boat looking at all the small islands off Stockholm.
I found it a bit long, but if cruising along on a boat is your thing, then youäll love it.
I didn"t get off the boast to explore as I didn"t see anywhere that I thought would be worth spending the rest of the day in., but if you"re looking to spend the day somewhere secluded then take this boat trip. They"re reasonably regular (timetables available) so you can hop onto the next one.
Toilets and food are available on board.
A full return trip costs 75SKR, which is about 8EUR.

“Take a boat into the Archipelago”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We had already taken an inner city boat excursion but we also wanted to go out into the archipelago. The trick was figuring out where. There are dinner excursions that take 4 hours, islands that are pretty far out where the adventure can consume an entire day. Our decision was to take a 1.5 hour boat trip to the island of Waxholm. That's 1.5 hours out and 1.5 hours back. This seemed long enough to be on a boat during a 5-day visit to the city.

The boat travel was quite pleasant. One passes many bucolic islands with summer houses and boat docks. It's not so different as being off Maine or Massachusetts. Maybe a bit greener. There are also two kinds of ferries; we took the more modern one out and a steamer back. We liked the steamer style best.

When we got to Waxholm, we walked around the small town located there. While there are Segways to rent, we didn't do that. Unfortunately, there aren't a whole lot of restaurants and, since we had been out on the water, only one that seemed to have seafood. And while the dish we ordered (we each got the same thing) was pricey, it was ample and tasty.

All in all, it was a nice way to see how many Swedes spend their long summer days. So, it's a good idea to do this if you're not just stopping in Stockholm for a day or two.
