Cape Olyutorskiy (Russian: Олюторский) is a cape pointing south in the Bering Sea, in Koryak Okrug of Kamchatka Krai, Russia. It was named after Alyutors, a Northern ethnic group.

The Kereks, a former maritime hunting people of the Russian Bering Sea coast, were living between the cape and the Gulf of Anadyr.[citation needed]
