Devil's Island is a lush tropical paradise, member of a three island group called Islands of Health (Iles du Salut) situated less than 10 miles off the cost of French Guiana. Despite its idylic appearance, the island is probably best known for its part as a French penal colony starting in the mid-1800s. Ile du Diable was used to house political prisioners. Few of the prisioners exiled to this site ever made it out to tell about their horrific experience. The book "Dry Guillotine" by Rene Belbenoit provides a first-hand account of the goings on inside this infamous penal colony.

Return to the ship.


Dinner: Dinner onboard.

Evening: Join in a game of cards, spend an evening chatting with friends in one of the lounges, or perhaps take the opportunity to study the stars before turning in for the night.

As the planet's last frontiers become inhabited, it is increasingly hard to find places unaffected by light pollution, Untouched by light glare, the dark Patagonian skies reveal a starscape that is breathtaking.
