Sail to the Isles of Scilly aboard Scillonian III from Penzance Harbour. From your arrival on St Mary's, it's just a short boat transfer to Tresco.
The crossing from Penzance to St. Mary’s take around 2hrs and 45 minutes, giving you a unique perspective of some of Cornwall’s most iconic coastline. The Scillonian operates from March to November, sailing daily in peak season and on a slightly reduced timetable in the early spring and late autumn.
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 or Isles of Scilly Parking and use their convenient shuttle services to and from the quay.
Transfers to Tresco
Be sure to label every piece of luggage with a blue Tresco luggage label at Penzance Quay. Don't forget to also label your luggage with your name and accommodation details.
Shortly before arrival at St Mary's, listen out for the time of the next boat to Tresco. This is usually aboard Firethorn of Bryher and usually departs around 30 minutes after the Scillonian docks (£6.50 pp single - payable onboard). If you used blue Tresco luggage labels, your bags will be transferred automatically.
On arrival on Tresco, our complimentary electric shuttle will take you to your accommodation.
