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

MV Claymore II Visits Pitcairn every 3 months, and makes 2 passenger runs to and from Mangareva per trip totaling 8 trips per year.
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 Claymore II.
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 MV Claymore II, assisted by the crew and ready yourself for your final 32 hour ocean crossing to Pitcairn.
The Claymore II carries supplies and passengers to the island every 3 month and Stoney Creek Shipping Ltd, the owners of the Claymore II, occasionally add private charters to those scheduled when either the Claymore II or their second Ship, RV Braveheart, are in the area.
