The island provides separation from society, and alleviates what Huck believes to be the constant demands of those around him.  

“I wouldn’t want to be nowhere else but here.” 

Also on the island, we have the scene where the steamboat makes its way up and down the river searching for Huck. The boat is filled with all of the people who care about him, and yet he will not make himself known...... even to ease the fears of his death. 

Lastly, we have Jim's escape from slavery. I think this one speaks for itself.
