Iony Island, or Jonas' Island, is a tiny island in the Sea of Okhotsk, Russia. It lies 240 km east of the mainland’s Far East region of Russia. The island is just 1.6 km by 850 m, and its sheer cliffs rise to a conical peak of 165 m. It is surrounded by smaller jagged rocks, and is often enveloped in dense fog. From the mid 19th C the waters were a hunting ground for bowhead whales, and in the late 19th C fur seals were hunted on the island.

Iony Island is the only island in the Sea of Okhotsk that is located in the open sea. Remote and isolated, it is a breeding ground for the Steller sea lion. All the other islands in the Okhotsk Sea are either coastal islands or they belong to the Kuril island chain. Large colonies of Crested Auklets use the Sea of Okhotsk as a nesting site. Iony Island is rarely marked on maps, but must be one of the outstanding natural history sites of the world.

Probably only a handful of people have ever visited this island, although it is now becoming a better-known tourist destination. Using a Zodiac for a four-hour cruise around the coastline is to be long remembered. There are hundreds of Steller sea lions and their baby pups on this breeding site. Some are so curious that they come up to investigate the Zodiacs. Birds are there in their hundreds of thousands with standing room only in most places. The dominant species is Brunnich’s Guillemot, but a real highlight is having the Whiskered, Parakeet, Least and Crested species as well.
