The Nevelskoy Strait (Russian: Пролив Невельского) is a strait between Eurasia and Sakhalin that connects the main body of the Strait of Tartary with the Amur Liman (Amur River estuary). It was named in memory of Capt. Gennady Nevelskoy who in 1849 discovered that the strait of Tartary is connected with the Amur estuary and thus is in fact a strait, and not a gulf.

Length: 56 km, width (narrowest): 7.3 km, fairway depth: 7.2 m.

The strait was a place for the contemplated Sakhalin Tunnel.
