Goofs

Character error 

When Gabato is piloting the helicopter to the island, his hands are in the incorrect position. The cyclic control (stick) would be controlled by the right hand and the collective would be controlled by the left. Gabato is backwards.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

The sound the motor bike makes at the start of the movie is not the correct sound for the type of bike being ridden.

Character error 

When the gang is riding the giant bees, Sean identifies the birds chasing them as "white-throated needletails," which is a species of swift. On the contrary, the birds featured appear to be white-fronted bee-eaters, which are in no way related to or resembling needletails.

Continuity 

In one scene Gabato's shirt is covered in bird droppings, yet in a scene later on he is wearing a clean shirt, then he is seen wearing the shirt with the bird droppings on it again.
When Hank puts the torpedo in the launch tube it's only about 3 feet long. When it's fired it seems to have doubled in length.
While parked on the dock there is a divider between the pilot and passenger area in the interior of the helicopter. Later during the interior shot on the way to Mysterious Island the divider is gone.

Errors in geography 

When Kailani approaches Hank and Sean's house after escaping the island, she is supposed to be in Ohio. However, there is a palm tree clearly visible behind her.
The helicopter in Palau has a registration number that begins with N. This indicates it is registered in the United States. Palau as part of Micronesia would have an aircraft registration beginning with V6.

Factual errors 

After Sean falls from the giant bee and injures his ankle against a log several individuals say he has a "dislocated ankle" and his stepfather and grandfather reset it quickly and easily as you would do with a dislocated shoulder. Although it is possible to "dislocate" your ankle it is not only very difficult to do, but due to the unique, and very stable, make-up of the ankle (unlike the shoulder) it only occurs in conjunction with either a fracture or multiple ruptured tendons of the area. Something that is very serious and extremely painful and definitely not something that could be easily remedied by 'popping it back into place' and then the individual being able to walk about and hike.
At the very end of the movie as it zooms out from the Earth to the Moon, along the way we see airplanes and satellites, and just before the Moon we apparently pass through some sort of asteroid belt. There is no asteroid belt between the Earth and the Moon.

Revealing mistakes 

When they land on the (uninhabited) Mysterious Island, the sand over the half-buried Gabby is patted down nicely; but there are large numbers of footprints around him on sand that should be smooth except for the footprints of the other three.
