Silversea Expedition Cruises À GORGONA ISLAND

Isla Gorgona is a beautiful tropical island and a national park. Packed with lush green rainforest, palm trees and beaches full of black volcanic rocks, this little island off the Colombian coast was used by Pizarro and his thirteen followers before they eventually went south to inspect and later conquer Peru. The island is named after its plentiful supply of snakes, which might have been one of the reasons to utilize the island until the 1980s as a prison. View more

Today only limited amounts of visitors are allowed ashore to explore the prison ruins, hike in the rainforest or snorkel.

Excursions depuis GORGONA ISLAND

A nature walk to Yundigua Beach

Take a wild nature hike through Gorgona Island to Yungdigua Beach. Before it was a penal colony, Gorgona was inhabited first possibly by the Tomaco-Tolita culture, and settled by the indigenous Kuna, with archaeologic remains dating back to 1300 AD. The island was referred as an "inferno," due to its many biting snakes that inhabit the island. Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century named the island for the famous Gorgon, Medusa, who had biting snakes in place of hair.


This option offers the opportunity to walk amongst the nature of this island and its unique ecosystem. Look for Gorgona NNP, frigate birds and pelicans on this island that teems with birds and other fauna. Arrive at the sandy beach of Yundigua, which affords some of the best snorkelling on the island with coral colonies dotting the waters. The waters contain 381 species of sea fish, many of which can be spotted right off the beach.


Please note that due to the wildlife on this island, for their own safety participants will not be allowed on this activity without high-necked boots and gumboots to protect against the biting, venemous snakes in the area.
