Zayatsky Island

This was our first ‘real’ expedition outing as we got into the zodiacs for the first time this trip to join the Expedition team and local guides for a walk to view a chapel and old labyrinths, the purpose of which is unclear, on Zayatski Island.

Anzer Island

In the afternoon the ship sailed the short distance to Anzer Island where we took zodiacs to Kopalskaya Bay. From there we hiked to Golgotha Crucifixion Skete, then via The Holy Trinity Skete onto the Western point of the island, where we waited for the ship to relocate and send out zodiacs to pick us up again.
