Adventures in Paradise Tidbits

The boat was an 85 foot schooner named the Tiki and is anchored in Papeete, Tahiti.

Set in the South Pacific, Adventures in Paradise centered around handsome Gardner McKay, whose character, Adam Troy was an American Korean War veteran who carried cargo and passengers from port to port.

At first filming was done on the 20th Century Fox backlot and critics complained. So they began doing some exteriors in the South Pacific. James Michener, after selling the idea to TV execs, backed out of the project.

But who cares about the downside? Ladies had McKay to look at and men had plenty of Tahitian beauties to oogle.

The show didn't do much for McKay's career but he redirected his talents to writing and has had several successful books.
