I would recommend Allegro train as it's fast and you pass the passport control right in the train.

The St.Peter Line Limited Sivuliike Suomessa ferry is a bit shabby, in my opinion. It's only worth taking of you want a lightning visit to St. Petersburg without a visa (possible on 'cruises', i.e., a return trip with cabin).

The train is fastest, most comfortable and smoothest. Flying is actually slower once you've figured in check-in times and getting to and from airports. Russians living in Helsinki take minibuses, which are dirt cheap but uncomfortable and slow.

Hi! Check the russian-ferry site - I think it is the most comfortable and cheap way to go to Russia from Helsinki, if you are travelling with friends. (prises can be different for a cabin)

And buses - - they always have discounts. (costs from 7 euro to 25)
