Hydrafoils and River Cruises
If you're here between the months of May and October it is well worth hopping on a boat and
checking out the city from the water. Not only does it show you the city from one of it's
most fortuitous angles, but it greatly decreases the chances of you getting run over by a tram while taking pictures.
These water taxis are particularly enjoyable since you can cruise the smaller canals that the
big tour boats can't manage as well as stop wherever you want along the way, which is handy
if you run out of drinks. Cruising the Griboyedov and Kryukov canals and the Moika River is
a great way to see St. Nicholas' Cathedral, the area around Teatralnaya Ploshchad, and New Holland.
At night when the bridges are up you can sometimes get these water taxis to take you to any water-linked destination.
