Hall Island, Alaska

Hall Island is a small island located 3.5 miles (5.6 km) to the northwest of St. Matthew Island in the Bering Sea in Alaska, United States.

Early Russian hunters who discovered it in 1764 knew this island as "Ostrov Morzhovoy" ('Walrus Island').

Since 1875, this island has been called "Hall" on American maps, presumably for American, Lt. Robert Hall, who was with Commodore Joseph Billings of the Imperial Russian Navy which anchored between this island and St. Matthew on July 14, 1791 .

It serves as a haulout site for Pacific walrus.

It is 5 miles (8.0 km) in length and has a land area of 6.1758 square miles (15.995 km2). The highest point is 1,610 feet (490 m). It is part of the Bering Sea unit of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. It is one of three hall islands.

Hall Island is uninhabited.

The Alaska Cruise season begins in May and ends in September. Although July and August are the warmest months to experience these incredible sites, Autumn and Spring are the most fun when the wildlife is at its best, the scenery is so very beautiful and the savings are the best.

Be prepared for one season colder than the time you are travelling. This is especially important for those who travel early and late in the season. The average temperature range is from overnight lows of 4c to daytime temperatures of 17c.
