Pilotage Zones

Finnpilot’s Pilot Order Centre operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Pilot Order Centre serves all parties that require pilotage services.A binding request for a pilot is made three hours prior to the vessel’s arrival at the pilot boarding site upon entry into Finnish waters, and two hours prior to the intended departure from a Finnish port.

The Finnish coastline and Saimaa waters are divided into three pilotage zones: Southern, Eastern and Western pilotage zones
