Cruises from Chankliut Island
Chankliut Island lies 10 kilometres south of Castle Cape on the Alaskan Peninsula in the North Pacific Ocean. The small island is 4.4 km long and half the width, with maximum elevation 248 m. It is named Ostrov Chankliut on Russian hydrographic charts. The island is part of the Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge.
The island itself has three rising hills joined by low landing areas. The island is covered with high grass flecked with mini-daisies known as “pearl everlasting”. Visitors are impressed with the remoteness of this region, and anticipate opportunities to see wildlife, though there is not much here.
