Ser Corlys Velaryon made nine Great Voyages aboard the Sea Snake in the East before he inherit the lordship of his house from his grandfather. These expeditions are described in Maester Mathis's The Nine Voyages, and 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.[1][2]

Corlys acquired his nickname, the Sea Snake, from the ship. After becoming Lord of the Tides, Corlys used the wealth from the Sea Snake voyages to build High Tide.[1][2]

Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, accompanied by her handmaiden, Mushroom and her favorite, Ser Harwin Strong, once sailed to Driftmark on the Sea Snake.[1]

When Lord Corlys died in 132 AC, he was buried at sea aboard the Sea Snake into the deep waters east of Dragonstone.[3]
