I was looking for kayak rental, but they don't offer rental alone. So, I took the canal tour. Relatively easy kayaking on the canals. Last portion on the Neva is mildly strenuous, but a nice workout. No boats on the canal during the trip, so overall very nice calm waters for the trip. (Note: they don't have a actual shop. You have to call/email in advance to book a spot.)
Great evening with PiterKayak I took the evening trip to the islands, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a perfect mix of physical exertion with beauty and calm. I was the only tourist on the trip, but they made sure that there would be someone who could translate for me. Warmly recommended!

Great Kayaking in SPB Kayaking with Piterkayak was definitely the highlight of my trip to St. Petersburg. My guide Denis was excellent, he made sure that my kayak was appropriate and safe for my skills and, thanks to him, the trip was a lot of fun, even in the rain (I was quite comfortable in the waterproof jacket provided by Piterkayak). I will definitely remember the beautiful views of St.Petersburg from the water. I highly recommend this company and their trips.

The right kind of sightseeing :) We have enjoyed the views of Kazan Cathedral, Church on Spilled Blood, cruiser Aurora, Peter and Paul Fortress and many other attractions. It's much more interesting than seeing it all from ground. Crossing the Neva in heavy wind is an unforgettable experience too :) The guides are very friendly and professional. Duration of the trip is perfect. Don't be afraid that 6 hours is too long, time will pass quickly. And you will still have almost full day to continue enjoying the city.
