Silversea Expedition Cruises To SANTA ANA

SANTA ANA

Port Mary is the name of the bay adjacent to Ghupuna, the main village in Santa Ana. A bright white sand beach with huge shade-giving trees runs along the shoreline in front of the tidy village. The houses here are made with local materials and most are built on stilts. Islanders generally welcome visitors with traditional songs and dances performed by members of the three different villages on Santa Ana. Some local people will also set up stands offering souvenirs for purchase. View more

Excursions in SANTA ANA

Expedition Activities with Silversea Expedition team

Arrive ashore to visit Ghupuna, the main village in Santa Ana. A bright white sand beach with huge shade-giving trees runs along the shoreline in front of the tidy village. These islanders generally welcome visitors with traditional songs and dances performed by members of the three different villages on Santa Ana.


Enjoy a welcome of a display of the Warrior Challenge (Mara-mara-tafa), a performance of the panpipers, several women's traditional dances (including Mao-nifita, Afuri and Mwabe Mwabe dances), a men's traditional dance, and a performance of the so-called Mudmen (Ai-matawa-Aifono-fono). Participate in a demonstration of traditional food preparation.


After your cultural programs, join the expedition team for a walk across the island, through shady forest where orchids grow, to view the schoolhouse and the traditional "spirit houses" where ancestral relics reside, and browse for souvenirs and visit with the locals.

Hiking with Silversea Expedition team

After admiring the cultural performance and singing, you can follow your Expedition guide who will lead you on a 3km (each way) village walk. Follow a gentle track through the village with their food gardens and patches of forest. At the top of the 150m elevation enjoy the opportunity to bird watch and see the local village activities.

Snorkeling with Silversea Expedition team

Getting into the water in Santa Ana is a must for everyone. Seeing the reef at the entrance itself is spectacular. Looking upwards, you will see the different shades of the water created by a layer of fresh water on the surface.
