Ocean Ports of Call

Cap Dezhnev - Russia, East Highlights:
Dezhnev monument, Uelen
Cape Dezhnyov or Cape Dezhnev forms the eastmost mainland point of Eurasia. Located on the thinly populated Chukchi Peninsula, it is just 82 km (51 miles) across the Being Straits from Alaska. Originally named by Captain James Cook as East Cape, it was re-named in honor of Semyon Dezhnyov, the first recorded European to round its tip in 1648. There is a large monument to Dezhnev on the seacoast.

The cape is the eastern tip of a high, rocky headland, about 20 km (12 miles) from Uelen in the north, connected to the mainland by a neck of lower-lying land peppered with swamps and shallow lakes. That low-lying land is so low in elevation that the cape appears as an island from a distance far to the south of it. The Cape Deshnev peninsula was a centre for trade between whalers, fur traders and the native Yupik and Chukchi people in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
