Treasure Quest: Snake Island is an American reality television series produced by MAK Pictures for the Discovery Channel. The series follows a crew of treasure hunters led by Cork Graham as they search for the legendary trove of Incan treasure known as the Treasure of the Trinity throughout South America.

Search locations[edit]

Season 1 (2015)[edit]

During Season 1, the crew focuses their search on remote Snake Island located off the southeastern coast of Brazil.[1][2] The treasure hunt is fraught with extreme danger as the small island is home to thousands of deadly golden lancehead pit vipers with one snake per square meter. Additionally, the team has to contend with armed black-market snake poachers, bullet ants, inhospitable terrain, and hazardous coastal waters populated with sharks, jellyfish, and roaming pirates.

Season 2 (2016)[edit]

During Season 2, the crew searches various locations throughout Paraguay and Argentina. Land dangers include venomous snakes such as the jararaca pit viper, venomous spiders and insects, man-eating jaguars, drug traffickers, highway bandits, rival treasure hunters, and jealous locals; river dangers include low-visibility waters, unpredictable currents, fast-moving debris, pirates, caimans, piranhas, vampire fish, and stingrays.[3]

Centuries-old map markings discovered on Snake Island during the previous season lead the team to their first site of interest, a long-deserted Guarani village along the bank of the Paraguay River in Paraguay.[4]

The team moves onto their second site in Paraguay, the remains of the former Trinidad Mission founded by Catholic Jesuit missionaries in the early 17th century.[5]

Information provided by a black market dealer leads the crew to their third site, the former Jesuit mission known as Santa Ana in the neighboring country of Argentina.[6]
