We arrived by cruise ship, and saw the bay both from sea level, and a high viewpoint above. Very scenic, particularly early morning and late evening!

This was my 3rd and longest boat trip on Avacha Bay; 12 hours. Saw seals, tufted puffins, auks, orcas, a large and a small whale. Worth the cold breeze on deck.

If the weather is clear, the bay is amazingly picturesque, both from the city and especially if you take a boat tour, which you can book at any tour agency. You will be treated to birds, seals, and, if you are lucky, orcas, amid stupendous...More

When looking on this bay you meet with the unforgettable views of kamchatka. The great volcanos are all over - Avacha, Karyak, vilyuchenski, and more with the port ocean and Petropavlovsk, the essence of kamchatka in one place.
