Komandor Bay,

silversea far east cruise komandor bay russia

On the east side of Bering Island is Commander Bay (Komandor Bay) and Vitus Bering’s final resting place on this windswept isolated island after his ship, the St Peter, was wrecked. Despite trying to survive on seaweed and the now-extinct Steller’s Sea Cow, Bering and several of his men perished here. These days Commander Island is protected as a Nature Reserve. A small monument accompanies the graves of Bering and the men who died there. Close to the graves is a creek that runs into Commander Bay and teems with salmon. The surrounding area is lush with diverse vegetation ranging from elegant grasses to plump crowberries. Most bushes are stunted by the constant winds, but none-the-less these hardy plants stabilize the fragile volcanic soils that would otherwise get blown away by gusts.
