Revealing mistake: The de Havilland Beaver takes off the first time for Makatea King Kong peak is in the background (a known peak on Kauai). When they land on Makatea there in the background is King Kong again, right where they took off from.

Continuity mistake: When Robin crashes the plane at the end of the film, it appears that she crashes it about 1/4 mile off shore. But when everyone runs out to the wrecked plane, it's just a few feet from the shoreline.

Trivia: Temuera Morrison and Cliff Curtis are speaking Maori in their roles as pirates. However they didn't know how to say the complex lines they were supposed to (about gold and pirates, etc), so they just ad-libbed random everyday stuff such as what they were cooking for dinner. (From Temuera's biography "Temuera Morrison: From Haka to Hollywood").

Question: If Quinn and Robin had no idea what island they crash landed on AND the plane's navigation system and radio had been knocked out by the lightning, how were they able to navigate straight back to Makatea once they retrofitted the plane and eluded the pirates?

Answer: Once they were in the air, Quinn would be able to navigate by sight. He was an experienced pilot and and was familiar with the territory and the different islands' configurations. He would also be looking for ship traffic, and he had a general idea which of several islands they were on. Once in the air, he would easily know which direction he was heading based on the position of the sun.
