helsinki-tallin ferry in rick's scandinavia dvd

which ferry is shown in the dvd? there are several ferry lines, and this one looks like what i'm looking for, can someone tell me which one it is? also, for someone without the need for a car ferry, which ferry would you suggest, will be staying at least a night in tallin in a hostel...like to leave my options open instead of scheduling times in advance, how will i go about getting a ferry ticket when i am there, and a ferry back a day or two later? thanks, virginia

I have no idea if it is the one shown in the DVD, but I booked a round-trip through http://www.lindaline.fi/en/. They have numerous departures each day, so it's possible you can walk up and get a ticket.

I'm not sure of the ferry featured in his show, but there are several. Any one of them is perfectly fine for a 90 minute ride. Just make sure you get the highspeed ferry (about 90 minutes) and not the slower ferries. You can buy tickets prior to boarding or a day in advance if you want to be more efficient or it is a busy time. The ferries all leave from Helsinki's central harbor and arrive at the same harbor in Tallinn.
