Tresco Boat Services run a range of boating services for the islands of Tresco, Bryher and St Martin's, from scheduled trips to scenic tours and private hire.
For Tresco and Bryher, we operate both scheduled boat trips aboard our large ferries and "special hire" aboard our fast jetboats throughout the year.
Scheduled services run daily in the main season and you can generally just turn up and jump onboard (unless specified on the boat times below). Usually, our weekly trips are:
Special Hire and Private Hire is also available, allowing you to book a boat at a time to suit you.
With special hire other people can then book on your boat, thus decreasing the cost to you. With private hire you will have exclusive use of the boat and crew for the hire period.
To enquire about special hire, please call +44 (0)1720 423373 during normal office hours, or email us. Please note: boats should be booked in advance as we cannot guarantee availability on the day.
From 2019, we are working together with St Mary’s Boatmen’s Association and St Agnes Boating to provide a more comprehensive, frequent and sustainable boat service for the island.
Tresco Boat Services will continue to provide all special hire boating and essential services boating (school boating etc) all year round. Special hire can be booked in advance via the Tresco Boats office on +44 (0)1720 423373 during normal office hours, or by emailing us. Please note: boats should be booked in advance as we cannot guarantee availability on the day.
St Mary’s Boatmen’s Association will operate all scheduled boating for St Martin’s during the main season, with St Agnes Boating providing a limited scheduled service in the winter. Schedule information will be published by these boat operators on their websites and on boat boards around St Martin's.
