Heading up the bay of St Petersburgh is a challenge due to heavy traffic.
Loads of Hydrofoils are passing close in high speed and the mixture with ordinary boats,crusieships and jetskis can be demanding and stressful. The best is to stay just outside of the dredged channels where depth is still around 4mtrs, and to stay focused. Making landfall in the marinas is also a bit challenging due to the current from the Neva river which will be 1-2 knots also inside the marinas.
