Ferry travel to and from St. Petersburg

by John Azzaro

Where may I find schedules, costs and booking info for return ferry travel from Tallinn to St. Petersburg and back this september?

Is there direct overnight service, does the ferry operator book the St. Petersburg hotell?

For less than 72 hours, no visa is required, right?

Thanks for your help,

Hello John,

Thank you for stopping by!

Regarding your questions, you can find your answers on the main website of St Peter Line Ferry, which www.stpeterline.com -

For your information, St. Peter Line is the only ferry operator linking to St Petersburg from Stokholm, Helsinki and Tallinn.

The company provide you only a round trip service, including food on board and a cabin for sleeping, and a compulsory city bus tour, which is simply a transfer from the port to the city center.

Yes! No visa is required if you stay less than 72 hrs.
