Booking a Berth on MV Bravo Supporter


Pitcairn's isolation is in itself a real enticement for many travellers. This and the fact that we don't have an airport make getting here an integral part of the Pitcairn experience.

You will first start your journey flying from your homeland via Auckland, Los Angeles or Tokyo to Tahiti in French Polynesia. Once you arrive in Tahiti, you will likely spend a few nights in a hotel or pension until you board the Air Tahiti Tuesday flight from Tahiti to Mangareva. So you need to make sure you can book your flight before contacting our booking office to secure your berth on the Bravo Supporter.

On arrival in Mangareva, just 300 miles west north-west of Pitcairn, you will take the short ferry ride from the airport to Rikitea village to board the Bravo Supporter. You will be met by the captain and crew of the Bravo Supporter at the wharf and transferred directly to the ship to ready yourself for your final 32 hour ocean crossing to Pitcairn.
