Silversea Luxury Cruises To TALAN ISLAND

Parakeet Auklet - Semidi Island, Alaska

Home to one of the largest seabird colonies in the northern part of the Sea of Okhotsk, Talan Island is a protected natural monument on the western end of Taui Bay some 100 km west of Magadan and 7 km east of the Antamlan Peninsula. Its eastern, southern and western shores show many small bays and coves, while the land rises almost immediately to 150 meters in height and ends in a flat plateau covering nearly one third of the island’s 2.5 square kilometers with many boggy areas.

Only the northwestern tip has a low meadow terrace where a few houses have been set up to permit scientists to study the hundreds of thousands of seabirds nesting here during summer: Black-legged Kittiwakes, Horned and Tufted Puffins, Slaty-backed Gulls, Crested and Parakeet Auklets, as well as Spectacled and Common Guillemots. The plateau offers an opportunity to see the tiny Middendorff’s Warbler and sometimes nests of the large Steller’s Sea Eagles can be spotted high up in the cliff. To reach the top of the island one has to walk through fern beds in the lower part.
