Russkaya Bay

Russkaya Bay is on the southeastern coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula in Eastern Russia. Near to Petropavlovsk, it is a fjordlike bay located in south-western part of the Avacha Gulf. Here you may see sharks, killer whales, sea otters and a sea-lions rookery at the entrance to the bay.


Petropavlovsk is the administrative, industrial, scientific, and cultural center of Kamchatka Oblast (Russia). The city itself has more people than its neighboring regions Magadan Oblast, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, and Koryak Autonomous Okrug, making it the largest by far in the far northeast. The city is situated on high hills and surrounded by volcanoes. In fact, the horizon cannot be seen clearly from any point of town as volcanoes and mountains are everywhere.

Zhupanova River

To the north-east 120 km of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy the Zhupanova River watershed boasts being one of the most productive trout rivers in the world. The Kamchatka south-eastern Peninsula and river is home to the richest rainbow trout habitat. The Zhupanova drains a 1.1 million acre area extending into the central Kamchatka Range of volcanic mountains. The river contains exceptionally large trout, some reaching 7.3-9 kg, (12-15lbs) five species of Pacific salmon, and two species of Anadromous char (Salmo alpinus L). The Zhupanova is a resting place for migratory birds, who gather here in the thousands during their fall migration. The Russian Far East has more brown-bears than Alaska, and the Zhupanova, before or during the annual salmon run is a good place to see them. The eye stopper here is the huge steller sea-eagle, the heaviest eagle in the world. They build their nests overhanging the river, and there is the opportunity to see chicks, as well as adults.


Korsakov is a port town of 36.652 people in Sakhalin Oblast, Russia. It is located at the southern tip of the island on the shores of Anniva Bay, some 42 km south of the island's primary city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. There is a great view over the harbor, along with a monument on the hill just behind the sea terminal.

Distance from port to City - 0kms

Places of Interest
The town features a museum with an exhibit describing the local frontier history, and the Japanese possession of the city (1905-1945).
