About Väinamere Uisk

 
Muhu uisk (Muhu serpent ship) - 1000 years of history
Centuries ago, the people of Muhu developed a big sailing ship
(uisk) from an old Viking vessel. “Uisk” carried people across the sea
until the beginning of the 20th century. Today, the historic sailing ship
“Moonland” awaits new passengers, giving an amazing opportunity to admire the cliffed coast of the Strait on the way. In addition, you can book picnics on the deck or longer cruises.

In 2009 marine organisation Väinamere Uisk was founded to re-build the traditional uisk vessel of Estonian islands and expose the local sea traditions to a wider audience. 

In the early Middle Ages people from the western islands (Saaremaa, Muhu etc.)  were called vikings and their vessels named huisk (snake). It was a narrow and light-weighted vessel, carried easily over different hindrances.

The new uisk follows the characteristics of the large transport models of the 19th century.
