The Estonian Navy (Merevägi) is organizationally a part of the Estonian Defense Forces rather than a standalone unit. It was disbanded during the Soviet occupation of Estonia, and restored after independence.

It has frequently taken part in Standing NATO Mine Countermeasures Group 1 (SNMCMG1) exercises.
