Canal Boat Tour in St Petersburg is one of the iconic experiences you can have in Russia. St Petersburg is embroidered with bridges and rivers so you can take the best pictures of the city from water.
There are two ways to have a boat tour:

  • Private rent of the boat
  • Group tour with English language guide
    Tour length depends on your choice.

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