By air.

Pulkovo (LED) is the only international airport in St. Petersburg.

By ferry.

Today is no ferry to Saint-Petersburg. We wait opening new lines on Summer 2009.

There's ferry from Lappeenranta, Finland to Vyborg, Russia on Summer (15.5.-1.9.2009). One way ticket 43EUR. See:

Today is no ferry to Pskov, Russia from Estonia by Peipsi(Chudskoe) lake.

NB: On autumn a new russia migration law take in force. Duo to that law every foreign traveller, who goes to Russia by ferry (not only by cruise boat) can entry without russian visa (not longer 72 hours), if he/she arrives via "special port". Listing of "special ports" is making now in Goverment of Russia. Saint-Petersburg will be in this list obligatory.
