The Mermaid II handles all services between Riga and Stockholm. Primarily used as a freight vessel, this ship also caters to passengers who are bound between the two ports. The ship can carry between 69 and 110 passengers, along with 170 vehicles. The Vilnius also services this route.

While these ferries are primarily cargo vessels, they are equipped to handle a small number of passengers. Those requiring special attention or accommodation are advised to inquire with DFDS Tor Lines before making the reservation.


Tallink operates services to Stockholm in Sweden. The voyages take place every other day with between three and four crossings every week. The total journey time is approximately 17 hours.
