During a relaxing three-hour boat ride off the coast of Hawaii, five passengers and the two-man crew of the S.S. Minnow hit a tropical storm and are stranded on a deserted tropical island.

Working together, the castaways live peacefully and try to find a way off the island. Unfortunately, their chances are usually dashed by the clumsiness of first mate Willie Gilligan (Bob Denver).
