  • Trivia

    • Also Mentioned in the Live Tour, their intention was always to return to the island on the boat and not actually sail to another mainland. They wanted to test how long the boat would survive at sea more than they were going after finding land. They were in Hawaii afterall. And Yes, they did stay in that hotel you can see in the background of a few shots.

    • In the MythBusters Live Tour, Jamie revealed to the audience that he actually found fresh water on the beach when he dug that hole, but because it wasn't found by using duct tape, it was edited to appear that it was salt water and thus he was forced to build his clear plastic setup to get the water. He explained that anyone can find fresh water at the beach using that 3 foot hole method, but since it wasn't related to duct ape, it wasn't mentioned in the episode.

    • Goof: Moments after Adam and Jamie climb into their boat, you can see a hotel in the background just behind Adam's head.
