Silversea Expedition Cruises A HENDERSON ISLAND (Pitcairn Islands)

HENDERSON ISLAND (Pitcairn Islands)
HENDERSON ISLAND (Pitcairn Islands)

Henderson Island is a raised coral atoll comprising 86% of the land area of the British Overseas Territory of the Pitcairn Islands. In 1820, a sperm whale rammed and sank the whale ship Essex, shipwrecking the crew on Henderson, the inspiration for Moby Dick. Locals from Pitcairn Island use Henderson as a source of valuable miro wood, and tantalising archaeological discoveries have been made indicating habitation by Polynesian settlers in the past. The area was under the sway of the Polynesian society based around the Gambier Islands. View more

When these islands saw environmental and economic decline, it seems Henderson Island was abandoned. It was formally annexed to the British Empire in 1902 by Captain G. F. Jones, along with his crew of Pitcairn Islanders. Henderson is one of the two raised coral atolls in the world which have been relatively untouched by humans, and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1988. Due to its splendid isolation, many species here are found nowhere else in the world, including ten flowering plants, all four of its land birds (such as the Henderson Lorikeet), and many of its invertebrates, along with many species found across the Pacific, such as the giant coconut crab.

Hike with Silversea Expedition team

Explore Henderson Island, a gem in the heart of the Pacific Ocean and one of the world's best remaining examples of an atoll ecosystem. In this remote and uninhabited piece of land virtually untouched by man, gain a true sense of how the landscape has appeared for endless years, and an understanding of how natural selection has resulted in Henderson's primary attraction: four endemic land birds.


In the event of a succesfull landing, go on a nature walk, hoping to spot the flightless Henderson Rail, Stephen's (or Henderson) Lorikeet, the Henderson Fruit-dove, and the Henderson Reed Warbler. The island is also known to have ten endemic species of plant life. To protect the rare, natural state of Henderson Island, UNESCO designated it as a World Heritage Site in 1988.
