Tour price very much depends on your group size. Please contact for a quote.

We offer a unique excursion. Less than an hour's drive from the center of Vladivostok, we suggest you to plunge into the absolutely magical nature of Russky Island. The island has become a real discovery for lovers of hiking, especially attractive are the rocky bays of the island and the capes, of which the shoreline consists. And, perhaps, one of the most unforgettable places is Cape Tobizin, which I want to tell you about and show during the excursion.

The main attraction of Tobizin cape are the extraordinary rocks, the shape of the cape and the small grotto, which can be seen only if you come from the sea. By the relief of these rocks, geologists studied the history of the appearance of Primorye. Another sight of this place are the remains of a double-grained stone bunker or as it is also called a machine-gun caponier # 244 of the 1941 project and the old luminous sign of Tobizin (lighthouse) staying on the very edge of the cape as if on a pedestal.

This place will not leave anyone indifferent! Pure sea of ​​amazing turquoise color, colorful floral glades, precipitous rocks and a beautiful cliff!

Cape Tobizina - eastern entrance to the Novy Djigit Bay (formerly Huluay-taza-isa translated as "Bay in the form of a pumpkin") on Russky Island. It is located on the tip of the Tobizin peninsula. From the east the peninsula is washed by the waters of the Karpinsky Bay, and from the west by the Ostrovnaya Bay and Novy Djigit. A low stony foreland departs from the cape. To the east of Cape Tobizin in the cliffs of the shore a cave was formed, the entrance to which from afar looks like a noticeable dark spot.

The cape was explored and named after Lieutenant Herman Germanovich Tobizin in 1862 by an expedition of Vasily Matveyevich Babkin.

The rocky and precipitous Cape Tobizin amazes with high triassic deposits. In 2006 it was assigned to specially protected natural monuments list.
