By Boat


The Scillonian III passenger boat sails from Penzance to St Mary’s from March through to November. In the peak summer months, it makes the return journey daily. The crossing takes approximately two hours and forty minutes. From St Mary’s, it is only a short onward boat journey to Tresco.

You can book online directly with Isles of Scilly Travel or call +44 (0)1736 334220. 

Please remember to notify us of your travel arrangements by contacting the Island Office on +44 (0)1720 422849 so that our transport team can meet you at Tresco quay and take you to your cottage.

The Scillonian is a passenger ferry only and cars cannot be brought to the islands. You can leave your car in the secure car park with Scilly Parking  who will drop you, your passengers and your luggage to the quay.
