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.

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

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). 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.

**Our weekly trips are: Sunday; Tuesday and Thursday to St Agnes; Monday; Wednesday and Friday to St Martin's; to St Mary's Monday to Saturday; Bryher every day - we plan to run a circular trip on a Sunday - as always these trips are weather and tide permitting, please check the boat boards around the island; our Facebook and Twitter page or give us a call on 01720 423373 - trips and times are advertised one day in advance**

 

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.

  • Check our Tide Table for tide predictions for the Isles of Scilly.
  • Check our 2018 Fares for pricing information.
