Silversea Expedition Cruises À ADAMSTOWN (Pitcairn Island)

Silversea Luxury Cruises -  Adamstown

Home to the original mutineers of the Bounty, Adamstown’s is today the capital of all four Pitcairn Islands. The islands – the last British Overseas Territory in the Pacific – include the namesake Pitcairn Island itself, plus the uninhabited Oeno, Henderson and Ducie. Pitcairn is the archipelago’s only inhabited island, with the population of just 50 centred in Adamstown. View more

It is no surprise that the nine mutineers along with six Tahitian men, 12 Tahitian women and one child stopped on Pitcairn in 1790; with its sloped and varied landscape, lush tropical promise and equidistant location between Peru and New Zealand, Pitcairn would have seemed an ideal hiding spot for the mutineers to settle. The ship was burnt to avoid detection (the ballast stone remains of the wreck in Bounty Bay). However, the ideal bucolic life that mutineer leader Fletcher Christian had envisaged was not to be. Poor treatment of the Tahitian men led to alcoholism, chaos and carnage and by 1800 only John Adams – who had recently discovered Christianity – remained. Adams taught the women and children to read and write from the bible. The capital is named after him. Not only had the island been misplaced on early maps of the region, but it can also be very difficult to come ashore as large breakers tend to build up just in front of the small harbour of Bounty Bay. The local museum houses the HMS Bounty Bible, the same bible that Adams taught the women and children to read and write from in the early 19th century.

Excursions depuis ADAMSTOWN (Pitcairn Island)

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

Guests have the opportunity after a semi-dry landing to walk around Adamstown and meet the local community members who are descendants of the Mutineers of "The Bounty".


Explore Pitcairn, an island full of history and unique culture. Halfway between Peru and New Zealand, Pitcairn was the perfect hiding spot for the famed HMS Bounty mutineers and their Tahitian wives. Not only had the island been misplaced on early maps of the region, but it can also be very difficult to come ashore as large breakers tend to build up just in front of the small harbor of Bounty Bay.


Sea conditions depending, go ashore by Zodiac, or perhaps enjoy the privilege of using the Pitcairners' longboats. Visit with the islanders, descendants of the Bounty crew, and be immersed for a moment in their daily lives, far removed from the rest of the world. Listen to the islanders' distinct dialect, a combination of 18th-century English and Tahitian, and explore the island, either on your own or accompanied by one of our experts.


Visit Pitcairn Island, speak to the descendants of the Bounty mutineers and see the spot where Fletcher Christian hid from his fellow outlaws.There is much to see, including the museum, the cemetery, the school and the chance to hike towards Fletcher Christian's cave. Birders should be on the lookout for the endemic Pitcairn Reed Warbler, while stamp collectors may want to purchase a few of the coveted Pitcairn Island stamps to keep as reminders of their visit to this remote and storied island.


Pitcairn Island cookbooks, hand-carved replicas of the Bounty, walking canes, and other souvenirs are available for purchase at Adamstown's meeting ground next to the church and post office.

The Stories of The Bounty

Sea conditions permitting a landing, spend the day in Adamstown exploring the storied hideaway island of the HMS Bounty's crew of mutineers. Arrive by zodiac or traditional Pitcairners' longboat and you'll be welcomed ashore by the tiny population of 50 islanders, learning of their life on this far-flung island. Your expedition afternoon will begin with your choice of either ATV or small van. The mutineers' descendants will share their stories, and you can find out more of their tiny society, as you visit the museum, cemetery, and school or should you wish, enjoy a traditional lunch in a local home. Birdlife, like the endemic Pitcairn Reed Warbler will provide a melodic soundtrack to your explorations.
