Can you do a day trip to Pitcairn Island?

Pitcairn Island is located many 1000's km East of Norfolk Island, and you can only get there by boat from New Zealand or Tahiti. There is no airstrip on the Island. The tyranny of distance has not deterred the language being spoken on both islands. Did you know on the 8th June every year we commemorate the landing of the Pitcairners who arrived to Norfolk Island on the Morayshire in 1856.
