Sakhalin (Tyuleniy , Korsakov)
Off the east coast, land on the island of Tyuleniy in the Zodiacs. Its beaches are home to huge colonies of seals and Steller sea lions, and its jagged cliffs are populated by innumerable common murres. Korsakov is steeped in history: Russia used to maintain a large penal colony here which gained literary notoriety thanks to Anton Chekhov.
