Freighter cruise to Pitcairn Island

 Pitcairn Island aboard MV Silver Supporter - monthly departures


Located halfway between New Zealand and Peru, Pitcairn Island is the only inhabited island of a group of four, that form the last remaining British Overseas Territory in the Pacific.

A visit to these legendary islands will grant you experiences few others have witnessed. Untouched subtropical island environments, pristine waters, endemic  ora, bird and marine life, an unforgettable sea voyage, incredible hospitality, lasting friendships and  rsthand insight into the living history and culture of the people of Pitcairn Island - the direct descendants of Pitcairn’s  first European settlers, the HMAV Bounty mutineers, and their Polynesian consorts who settled on Pitcairn in 1790.

The journey is very much a part of the Pitcairn travel experience.  Whilst on Pitcairn you will enjoy community and island home group dinners, a variety of walks, tours and workshops. All personally hosted by the people of Pitcairn.

This is a truly rare opportunity to visit a fascinating and remote part of the world.

We have a range of options available for touring the stunning Pitcairn Island and surrounding islands. Have a look through our tour options and itinerary below.
