Seven people go on a three hour tour out of Hawaii. A bad storm hits and they end up shipwrecked on a deserted island. Many zany adventures ensue, mainly due to Gilligan's ineptness. The group includes the Skipper, Gilligan, Mr. & Mrs. Howell, two married millionaires, Ginger Grant a movie star, Mary Ann the simple girl next door and The Professor who seems to have a very wide field of knowledge.

Tina Louise declined to appear in the movie, claiming that she was not going to reprise the role that she felt had devastated her career. Reportedly she asked for a prohibitively large sum of money. Judith Baldwin, a substantially younger actress who resembled Louise, was cast in her place. The following year, Baldwin would go on to play Ginger again in The Castaways on Gilligan's Island. Cassandra Peterson also auditioned for the part of 'Ginger,' shortly before KHJ-TV offered her the horror-host position as 'Elvira Mistress of the Dark'.
