Though discovered in 1786, the Pribilofs did not have permanent settlers until 1820, when the Russians relocated Aleuts to the island. You can find horned puffins, thick-billed murres and crested auklets in some of the largest seabird colonies in the Western Hemisphere. The Pribilofs are also the site of the world’s largest breeding colonies of northern fur seals. An ecologically controlled visit to their rookery should afford unsurpassed photo opportunities, including large bulls with their harems and newborn pups.
