Gulf of Patience (Russian: Залив Терпения, Zaliv Terpeniya) is a large body of water off the southeastern coast of Sakhalin, Russia, between the main body of Sakhalin Island in the west and Cape Patience in the east. It is part of the Sea of Okhotsk.

The first Europeans to visit the bay were the crew of the Dutch ship Castricum, captained by Maarten Gerritsz Vries, who were there in the summer of 1643, They named the gulf in memory of their having to wait for the fog to clear in order for them to continue with their expedition.
