How well do you know Gilligan's Island when it comes to geography?

Just where exactly were they and where were they from?

Gilligan's Island must be a lovely place, because people there are in no rush to leave.

Speaking of places and Gilligan's Island, this quiz is all about places on Gilligan's Island. It's a true, tricky trivia test to see who knows this sitcom the best.

We start you off easy at Gilligan level — but it finishes on Professor level. Good luck!
  1. Let's start big — in which ocean are the castaways lost?
  2. The S.S. Minnow departed from which state on its three-hour tour?
  3. Mary Ann comes from a town called Winfield — but which state is her home state?
  4. The Skipper is pointing to a body of water in the middle of the island. What do they call this body of water?
  5. Speaking of the Skipper, he served in World War II. He tells stories about his experience in the Battle of ________?
  6. Perhaps you can tell by his accent, but Thurston Howell comes from which state?
  7. Before she became an actress, Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) held which pageant title?
  8. Wrongway Feldman flies a plane named after a New York City borough called "The Spirit of _______."
  9. When asked about his education, the Professor tells Mr. Howell that he has "a B.A. from USC, a B.S. from UCLA, an M.A. from SMU, and a Ph.D. from…" which university?
  10. In the episode "And Then There Were None," Gilligan at last mentions his home state. Can you remember or guess what it is?

Looks like the Skipper wants you to do a little more studying. Better luck next time!
I got lost.
How I got back here is a mystery.

9/10. I'd heard that Dawn Wells was Miss Nevada, but I thought #7 meant Mary Ann, not Dawn Wells. I should have paid closer attention. 😬

I disagree with number 6....his manner of speaking is called the "Locust Valley Lock Jaw" which is a wealthy town on the North Shore of Long Island.
