Porkkala wreck park is internationally significant dive destination. Thus, the waters around the area have always been strategic value for the various Navies trying to control the Gulf. Likewise, it was the decision point for the merchant vessels, as whether to trust on a local pilot and venture deep into the coastal archipelago routes, providing shelter from the storms or whether to brave the open sea and hope for the best.
