Bering Strait links the Arctic Ocean with the Bering Sea and separates the continents of Asia and North America at their closest point. The strait is about 53 miles (85 km) wide and contains numerous islands in the strait, including the two Diomede Islands. The U.S.-Russian boundary runs through the strait. In winter the region is subject to severe storms and the sea is covered by ice fields averaging 4 to 5 ft thick. In mid-summer drift ice remains in the Bering Strait and it is rich in wildlife and huge numbers of whales and seabirds migrate through here. This area is home to several interesting whales, including bowhead, gray and Minke. The strait is named after Vitus Bering, a Danish captain, who sailed into the strait in 1728.
