St. Petersburg boat cruises operator Astra Marine resumes water hop on — hop off excursions which were suspended in July 2016 and turned into an ordinary boat excursion. Passengers can buy a ticket valid for a day and take off and take on at six stops in the downtown.
For the first time, a city sightseeing cruises concept was introduced in the city a few years ago, but last year the company decided to make it an ordinary one entry — one exit route.
As of April 22 to November 5, 2017, the concept comes back. Daily hourly departures start from 11.00, the last departure is at 20.00.
You can hop on or hop off at six stopovers within the city’s center:
— Admiralty embankment just across the Hermitage museum;
— The Peter and Paul fortress;
— The Summer Garden (near the Savior on Spilled Blood Cathedral);
— Cruiser Aurora;
— The Kunstkamera museum;
— The Faberge Museum at the Fontanka embankment.
Number of enters and exits during a day is unlimited.
Ticket valid for a day costs 1000 rubles ($17).
A trip without taking off at any points takes just two hours and there is a ticket for such an excursion for 800 rubles.
