Tresco Boat Services


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.

Boats and Services

We have two types of craft: larger ferries (Firethorn and Voyager) and small, faster jetboats (Cyclone, Hurricane and Lightning).

Scheduled services run daily and you can generally just turn up and jump onboard (unless specified). We also operate regular scheduled sightseeing trips around the islands to see birds, seals and Scilly's maritime heritage, along with regular boats out to follow the weekly Pilot Gig races.

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.

Please note: all boating is weather and tide dependent. Tidal predictions are available to download on our Tide Table.

 

Daily boat times are posted on this webpage; on boards around the Islands and also on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

During the summer season (from Easter), we operate daily boats between Tresco and Bryher, as well as the following general boating schedule (though please note this is subject to change due to weather and tides):

Monday: Bryher; St Mary's and St Martin's

Tuesday: Bryher; St Mary's and St Agnes

Wednesday: Bryher St Mary's and St Martin's

Thursday: Bryher; St Mary's and St Agnes

Friday: Bryher; St Mary's and St Martin's

Saturday: Bryher and St Mary's

There will also be regular sightseeing trips around the islands to see birds, seals and Scilly's maritime heritage, along with regular boats out to follow the weekly Pilot Gig races.
