This week, I traveled to the most remotely inhabited island on Earth: Pitcairn Island. This island has one of the most unique stories of a founding that I’ve ever heard of and I can’t wait for you to explore it with me in this epic tale shot by the incredible @cory.s.martin

Hi friends, I hope you enjoy this wild and incredible story. To address a technical aspect I’m sure a few commenters will point out 🤓 depending on how you measure and which source you find, another island “Tristan Da Cunha” has claimed to be most remote. That’s because it’s 7-day boat ride to the nearest airport instead of the 4-day trip it took me to Pitcairn. But if you measure distance from closest continent, Pitcairn blows them all out of the park. Ultimately, Pitcairn’s unbelievable story is what made me chose to go there, you all know by now that a 7-day boat trip wouldn’t scare me away if the stronger story was on the other island. I hope you enjoyed the video as much as we did making it 🙏
Haha I went in to comment exactly this 😂 thanks for clarifying
actually, Inaccessible island is the most isolated island (or bouvet island but that is boring). It is completely surrounded by steep cliffs such that no one has ever been to the actual island itself. The only way to visit it is to take a boat to the beach and camp there.
It might be a great vacation island
Rapa is also a 7 day boat ride from Tahiti. Super cool island.
You neglected to mention the most disturbing dark secret of this Island. The child abuse that has taken place by all the men of the island perpetuated by the women frankly disturbed me to the core……the way you have glamourised this place is sickening……no one should ever go to this place of even promote it. I don’t think you did proper research bofore setting out on this adventure but this is a place to start to learn more.
Such a fantastic telling of this story.
l loved this travelogue. I’ve studied remote islands through philately (stamp collecting) since I was a kid in Minnesota. Pitcairn, Tristan da Cunha, St Helena, Ascension, and tiny Dutch Saba in the Caribbean were my focus. I have been president of the two study groups focusing on Pitcairn and the three South Atlantic isles through their history and postal service. At 73 now, I moved to Saba a few years ago and host tourists in my 164 year old original cottage to fulfill my dream of living on a remote island. We aren’t as remote as Pitcairn or Tristan, but we do have an unusual claim: our pharmacist is Jacqui Christian…from Pitcairn Island!
Come to Saba some day, stay with me, and you’ll discover a fascinating history here, almost as good as a mutiny! Certainly our little dot is a drone photographer’s delight for dramatic footage similar to Pitcairn.
So your saying you make it through life being a hooker
Yes. Allow them to profit off of the story of your country/region. YOU tell that story instead of THEM.
Been to saba! Amazing place with amazing people!
Imteresting story, would love to visit Saba one day
so jeff, how can a gal like me get an experience on your island? your story is absolutely fascinating, and as someone who chooses living to experience over working to live, I would love to connect. It’s a far reach, but I am happy to share my skills and my self in any way that allows me to immerse into your culture! Thank you for sharing your story 🙂
Beautiful video, thanks for documenting and sharing as usual!
☝️☝️Hey☝️☝️Congratulation you have been selected among my shortlisted winner’s🎉🎉🎉🎉👆.
These stories make such a difference for so many people!
Thank you, Yes Theory for seeking out these incredible stories!
Always buzzing when you guys share a new adventure!!
cool profile pic!
Too bad he didnt tell about why most young people moved from the island.
Look the island up.
They spoke up as around 4/5 men in the island were participating in systemic child rape and abuse going back 3 or 4 generations
@Don’t read profile photo ok i wont
Those drone whale shots! Holy cow! I’ve never thanked a corporation before but thanks Shopify for funding these guys!
They help those that aren’t able to travel. But we get to see things through their eyes! Boys! You are exceptional story tellers! Thank-you! Thank-you! Love these amazing adventures!
@S G 🤓
It’s a nice sentiment but those drone shots weren’t anything unique and is kind of a visual gimmick in regards to filmmaking. Yes theory are great filmmakers dont get me wrong. But any other aspect would make more sense to mention. Just a thought
When I tell you my Jaw DROPPED when you pulled out that fish 🐠 absolutely incredible
this is insane, even though this video makes me want to go there chances are I most likely never will, but it feels like I explored the whole island with you guys, especially because some shots show the massiveness of the place. Thanks for this, really loved it!
🆙Thanks for watching 🔝🔝 message right away I have something for you 🆙🆙🆙
I’m amazed by how much infrastructure they have for the fact that it’s such a small island, I mean that grocery store is huge and the fact that they have their own police station hahahah amazing story as always <3
@zumaan Andrade cus they had there own and that hid the huge pedophile ring that was the entire island
It’s not that amazing, they have only just barely enough to get it all working. If there was less infrastructure they wouldnt be there at all.
Because they all know each other they need to import people from the UK as the police
It’s kinda important to have a police station and jail when it was discovered in 2004 that 1/3 of your residents including the Mayor had been regularly raping the islands children under the threat of the guns they had. Check wikipedia for the details and links. No idea why this was never mentioned in the video. The main lady in the video Olive defended their actions calling the rapes a “tradition”.
*Thank you, I love your videos! Good job!*
