Canal boat ride in the center of St. Petersburg

Canal boat ride in the center of St. Petersburg

Our comfortable private boat will take you along the granite embankments of the small rivers and canals to the main waterway of Saint Petersburg Neva river, showing you the gorgeous palaces and bridges from different perspective.

St. Petersburg was conceived as a city on the water, a counterpart of Venice and Amsterdam, and rightly earned its nickname, «the Venice of the North.» A boat trip along the canals will show you the city through the eyes of Peter; you can fully immerse yourself in the rich history and architectural heritage of the city or simply enjoy your ride.

More than 30 bridges are waiting for you to discover their legends and alluring stories. Behind every turn, you will see beautiful palaces and castles. A tour of St. Petersburg’s canals will reveal to you the finest architectural monuments of «the Northern Venice.»

In total, the city’s rivers and canals are about 300 km long. During the trip around the canals, you will not only get to see the main attractions in the city center but also visit the cozy quiet corners on the outskirts.
