I am friends with Jacqui Christian who lives on Pitcairn. For years I have wanted to visit there. I first made friends with her parents when they came to the states in 1990. I've wanted to visit Pitcairn even longer than that. One option has always been a day excursion from a cruise ship. Weather permitting, you can spend the day on the island, but that is far from guaranteed, due to the heavy rollers entering Bounty Bay. A more practical way for me would be to take a flight from my home here in Honolulu directly to Papeete, Tahiti. From there, you can catch a flight to an outer island called Mangareva, where you catch a boat which, last time I checked, will take you to Pitcairn for 5k in NZ dollars return. It is a 3 day rough voyage, where even seasoned mariners are almost guaranteed to be seasick the entire voyage. You also need to obtain a visitor's permit from the Pitcairn govt. headquarters in Auckland, NZ. Voyages will take you to Pitcairn for one week or two. Once you get there, the locals will help you arrange an economical home stay, as there is no hotel there. Alcohol & tobacco are scarce on the island, so take your own. For me, that would mean taking 4 cases of beer for a two week stay. Electricity runs in the morning & evenings only, I believe for 4 hours at a time. There is a store there, but supplies are limited to whatever happens to be available. As for me, I am prone to night sweats, & cannot sleep without air conditioning. This has probably been the biggest show-stopper for me. Last I heard, there was no a/c on the island & daytime summer temps run 90 degrees F, or 31C. There is no boat service during winter months. After your stay, look forward to another 3 days of being seasick on your way back to Mangareva. After reading this, if you still want to go, all the resources you need can be found on Google. Another good starting point is at www.pitcairn.pn. If you do go, I envy you. It is said to be one of the world's great adventures for the intrepid traveler who doesn't mind roughing it, "a lot"....
thank u so much
Hello Mark. Greetings from Pacific Ocean waters close to Pitcairn! Your postcard is now in Pitcairn's postbox waiting to be sent. But they said it may take up to six month ;) Hope it will reach you anyways. Ciao!
