Follow in the wake of the mutineers of HMS Bounty on board Aranui 5, the most unique experience in the South Pacific
Next year , 230 years after the arrival of the mutineers of HMS Bounty, small passenger-freighter Aranui 5 will make a rare call on the island of Pitcairn – one of the most remote and isolated destinations in the world.
Departing from her regular schedule in The Marquesas, Aranui 5 – one of the most unique cruise experiences in the world – will make a special 13-day voyage with just 230 guests to Pitcairn Island from Tahiti on 11 April, 2020. The voyage also visits the Gambier and Austral archipelagos.
Step on board Aranui 5 – the ‘Freighter to Paradise’ – for an island-hopping adventure to the most remote shores of French Polynesia
The islands of the South Pacific conjure up images of adventure and mystery, unspoilt beauty and wild shores that are intoxicating and inspiring in equal measure. None more so than the enchanting Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia, and there is no better way to reach them than on board the passenger-freighter Aranui 5 – one of the most original and unforgettable voyages in the world.
Located in the Pacific Ocean, 900 miles from Tahiti, the Marquesas are so remote that Aranui 5 is, in fact, their lifeline. A working cargo ship, Aranui 5 delivers supplies to the six inhabited islands of the archipelago, while also hosting up to 230 guests on her 2500-mile adventure through the islands.
