The Sea Snake was a ship captained by Corlys Velaryon. His expeditions aboard the Sea Snake, described in Maester Mathis's The Nine Voyages, garnered him great wealth from Essos, including stops at Qarth, Yi Ti, and Leng. During the last journey, Corlys loaded the Sea Snake with gold and purchased twenty ships in Qarth, allowing him to sail most of them back to Westeros with spices, elephants (which did not survive the voyage), and silk.
