Our ferry Wasa Express has been in traffic between Vaasa and Umeå since 2013. Wasaline is the shipping company that operates this line and is owned by the two cities on both sides of Kvarken. The connection is used by utility passengers and freight customers but also fills a function for recreational passengers looking to go shopping in the neighbor city or just to experience the sea route aboard a comfortable passenger ferry.

Wasa Express has the capacity to transport 915 passengers, and two large car decks of which the upper also has hanging shelves that enable the simultaneous transportation of large numbers of passenger and cargo vehicles across Kvarken.

Wasaline is investing in entertainment and every Friday and Saturday we have live music at our panorama bar on deck 8. There are three restaurants onboard, an a la carte restaurant, our popular archipelago buffet and a café.

On board Wasa Express there is good food, entertainment and atmosphere. We guarantee you the most comfortable passage across Kvarken.
