VISITORS can once again travel to remote Pitcairn Island, home to the descendants of the HMAV Bounty and their Polynesian consorts.
The island has reopened its borders and is COVID-free enabling its regular passenger shipping link with French Polynesia to resume in early July.
Pitcairn's supply ship, MV Silver Supporter is now making the 32-hour voyage from Mangareva in French Polynesia to Pitcairn. Her voyages are timed to directly connect with the weekly, Tuesday flight from French Polynesia's gateway island of Tahiti.
As Pitcairn Islands Tourism Travel Coordinator, Heather Menzies explains: "All current community residents are fully vaccinated and we're very much looking forward to safely welcoming visitors back to our shores.
"We are excited to once again open Pitcairn up to the world".
Strict COVID-safe protocols remain in place to safeguard the island's 50 or so residents. All prospective visitors must provide proof of vaccination at time of booking and have an administered rapid-antigen test, on board the ship, prior to the ship's arrival at Pitcairn.
Pitcairn has put itself on the map as of lately with one of the world's largest marine reserves and Mata ki te Rangi - Eyes To The Sky International Dark Sky Sanctuary.
