Passenger Areas

The Government of Pitcairn Islands’ chartered freighter, Silver Supporter, will provide travellers with all they need for a reliable, safe and comfortable voyage to Pitcairn and her other islands. Please note, however, that Silver Supporter, is a working freighter not a luxury cruise ship – her amenities are fresh, bright and clean and practically orientated and the crew are friendly and helpful.

Fully air conditioned and attractively appointed the Silver Supporter accommodates 12 passengers in 6 spacious twin share cabins, each with ample storage, a private ensuite and separate office/lounge area.

Passengers have a shared dining area for serviced meals and their own comfortable lounge for socializing and relaxing. All meals, bedding and towels are provided. If passengers enjoy an alcoholic drink after dinner, it's BYO. Alcohol can be purchased in Tahiti, Mangareva and Pitcairn Island – standard limits apply.
Visitor quarters and all communal areas are smoke and vape free.

Visitor berths are limited to 12 per voyage. If the vessel is fully booked, we cannot guarantee that an individual traveller will have a cabin to themselves. If you are prone to travel/sea sickness please ensure you have appropriate medication with you so as to make your voyage as comfortable as possible.
