Boats to other islands usually depart Tresco and Bryher mid-morning, returning late afternoon. There are usually a couple of options each day between Tresco and Bryher, and to St Mary's.

Boat times are subject to change due to weather and tidal variations, so we confirm boating in the afternoon a day in advance. We also produce an indicative weekly boating plan, though this is subject to change, so make sure to check confirmed times the day before travel.

During the winter months, most boating is on a phone-to-book basis, with scheduled trips to St Mary's on Thursdays and Saturdays (subject to weather, times confirmed the day before).
