For anyone with a strong spirit of adventure, you can now visit one of the most remote and fascinating islands of the Pacific – Pitcairn, and even stay with the descendants of the HMS BOUNTY crew.
“Mutiny on the Bounty” has been immortalized by numerous films and books over the years detailing the events which began in 1789 when Fletcher Christian and part of the crew of the British Royal Navy Ship the HMS Bounty mutinied. This started a chain of events that led to the Bounty being burned and the founding of Pitcairn Island.
Visiting Pitcairn is a dream shared by many around the world. The island is reachable only by sea which keeps it such an amazing destination. Our expeditions to Pitcairn, once in a lifetime opportunities to visit this remote island, share in its history and get to know the wonderful community. Mary Crowley was honored to be at Pitcairn Island with an amazing group for the Bicentennial Celebration of the founding of the island in 1990.
“After my own world travels, returning home to Pitcairn makes me realize what a unique and wonderful place I live”, says Jacqui Christian (a descendant of Fletcher Christian), and one of the Founders of Pitcairn Travel. She further notes,
Pitcairn is like nowhere else and we are excited by the partnership with Ocean Voyages. Working with Mary and her team adds great nautical expertise and the availability of a network of ships and yachts for visiting Pitcairn. The Pitcairners enjoy sharing their island with small groups of adventurers and we are thrilled to provide high quality and reliable access to this exotic and remote location.
Mary Crowley who has been arranging trips to Pitcairn for over 30 years and has visited the island herself, says, “The programs we have created give people around the world the rare chance to visit this legendary island. Working with Leslie Jaques and Jacqui Christian of Pitcairn Travel and all the people of Pitcairn allows us to do specifically designed programs to meet a wide range of interests with ease.”
