ONE OFF - PITCAIRN ISLAND ABOARD ARANUI 5
Hold onto your hats – we’ve got a goodie for you!
If you’re looking for a new and different cruising adventure, we’ve got just the thing. Aranui Cruises has announced they are adding a very special voyage in 2019 to the Gambier and Austral Islands in Tahiti, and onward to Pitcairn Island, retracing the famous journey of the Bounty mutineers.
This part of Tahiti is remote and picture-postcard beautiful with breath-taking lagoons and lush mountains. With her gorgeous white-sand beaches, fringed with palm trees, it’s easy to see why the Bounty crew fell in love with the islands and her people back in 1789, and why Fletcher Christian wanted to return to these islands after the mutiny.
It wasn’t safe for the mutineers to stay in Tahiti, however, so the mutineers, together with their Tahitian brides and six Tahitian men, departed and found the isolated Pitcairn Island. Here, they burned the Bounty and made a home for themselves on the island, away from the eyes of the British search parties.
Today, Pitcairn Island is home to just 50 descendants of the mutineers. It’s a unique and fascinating community, living on an island that is so isolated it can only be reached by boat.
This is your opportunity to visit a remote part of Tahiti and the even more remote, Pitcairn Island on-board the comfortable and stylish working ship, Aranui 5.
Departing from Papeete on 10 January 2019, you’ll spend 13 days on board the Aranui 5 enjoying the friendly hospitality of the crew and discovering a unique part of the world.
As this is a one-off voyage, availability is very limited, with very few cabins left. Prices including return airfares, pre/post accommodation, transfers and cruise start from A$10,599 per person twin share.
