Nikolski (Chalukax̂[1] in Aleut) is a census-designated place (CDP) on Umnak Island in Aleutians West Census Area, Alaska, United States. The population was 39 at the 2000 census.



Nikolski is located at 52°56′29″N 168°51′39″W / 52.941485°N 168.860765°W / 52.941485; -168.860765.[2]

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 132.8 square miles (344.0 km²), of which, 132.1 square miles (342.1 km²) of it is land and 0.7 square miles (1.9 km²) of it (0.55%) is water.

On a clear day the view from Nikolski is dominated by Mount Vsevidof to the northeast, the highest point on Umnak Island.

The boundary between the Alaska Time Zone (UTC-9) and Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone (UTC-10) passes just west of Nikolski, along the line of 169°30'W[3] through Samalga Pass.[4] This places Nikolski in the Alaska Time Zone. However, as Nikolski is part of the Aleutian Region School District the settlement effectively observes Hawaii-Aleutian time.[5]
