Pitcairn Islands Tourism is pleased to present our 2021 small group Explorers Voyage to Oeno, Pitcairn, Ducie, and Henderson Island.

Lying in the central South Pacific, the islands of Henderson, Ducie and Oeno support remarkably pristine habitats and are rarely visited by non-residents of Pitcairn.

The 18-night/19-day tour includes 11-days cruising around the remote Pitcairn Islands group, stargazing in Pitcairn's new International Dark Sky Sanctuary named Mata ki te Rangi meaning 'Eyes To the Sky', exploring the world’s third largest marine reserve, landings on UNESCO World Heritage site Henderson Island and seldom visited Oeno and Ducie Island, as well as a 4-day stay on Pitcairn Island, during Bounty Day 2021, home of the descendants of the HMAV Bounty mutineers since 1790.

This will be the second ever voyage of its kind — visiting all four of the islands in the Pitcairn Islands Group!
