Cruises from Pitcairn Island
NOTE: Tenders to shore are infrequent. Locals from the island do come out to the anchored ship. Pitcairn Island (pop. 50), the main island of a loosely grouped handful of four tiny islands, is a sub-tropical paradise in the South Pacific, located halfway between New Zealand and Peru.
The islands are the last British colony in the South Pacific. The rugged main island was settled by the infamous mutineers of the Bounty and their Polynesian companions, and most of Pitcairn's approximately fifty current inhabitants are their descendants. Of interest to many is the sale of valuable postage stamps, honey and handicrafts.
