Viper Island derives its name from the vessel H.M.S. Viper in which Lt. Archibald Blair came to Andaman and Nicobar Islands in 1789. The vessel, it is believed, met with an accident and its wreckage was found near the island. It is believed that there were a lot of viper snakes at that time on this island. This small island was the site of the jail where the British used to imprison convicts and political prisoners. It has the ruins of a gallows atop a hillock. Since this jail couldn't accommodate many inmates, the cellular jail was constructed by the British by enslaving the inmates of Viper island jail.

When Ross is closed, the option given is Viper island. A hall, which was a court and one ruined jail for women on the hill, just it! Nature lover will enjoy the nature.

Viper island can be reached by a short ferry ride from Port Blair. The island has got ruins of gallows from where the prisoners of cellular jail were hung. Unfortunately whilst these are very important historical sites they have not been maintained properly.

This island is totally deserted and the ships that take you there give you around 15 to 20 minutes to see the completely island and come back. It has few Death houses which are also almost ruined due to the Tsunami and thats it, the complete island is barren and deserted. Unless you are a historian or someone who loves historical places, do not waste time visiting this island, there's a lot more to do in Andaman.
