Silversea Expedition Cruises To TUAM ISLAND

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Tuam Island

Banana-shaped Tuam is an uplifted coral atoll covered in palm trees. The only village is located on the lower eastern side of the island. Highly exposed to the trade winds, the islanders have set up protective walls made out of palm-branches giving the village the look of a fortified castle from a distance. A trail marked by white sand leads from the landing site to the settlement area of neatly organized wooden huts and houses with pandanus-thatched roofs. View more

The forest reveals different gardens set up in the higher regions of the island. The island also has a spectacular reef and snorkelling next to the drop-off can reveal many colorful reef fish.

Excursions in TUAM ISLAND

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

After a wet landing onto a sandy beach, take a short walk uphill to be welcomed by village elders. The Tuam Islanders will welcome us with some of their impressive dances with which they depict different legends.

The Siassi people are known for their great traditional dances performed in large groups, and the Tuam Islanders are considered the best of all. Typically, the presentation begins with the women's dances. Take time to appreciate each successive dance group perform as you stroll further into the village.


See the unique palm frond windbreak wall built to protect the island homes from strong trade winds. Explore the small craft market in the village where artisans' woven necklaces, string bags and wooden bowls are available for purchase with local currency.


Free roam the village, swim, snorkel or go for a birding walk looking out for Beach Kingfisher, Bismarck Black Myzomela and Bismarck Crow.
