Wildlife Boat Trips
Look for seabirds, seals, dolphins and more on a wildlife trip by boat around the outer reaches of the archipelago.
Tresco Boats' wildlife and scenic tours around the Isles of Scilly offer the chance to see the archipelago's wonderful wildlife, stunning scenery and maritime heritage up close.
From sunbathing seals to diving dolphins and playful puffins, all manner of wildlife is seen on our wildlife trips around the islands.
Our experienced skippers will vary their route depending on weather, tide and previous sightings, offering you the best opportunity to see Scilly's incredible wildlife while also giving a guided tour of the scenic sights and points of interest along the way.
Our high-speed jetboat wildlife trips last an hour and are scheduled regularly to meet demand at a cost of £40 per person. To book or enquire about future trips, please call 01720 423373 or email us.
Alternatively, we also schedule regular wildlife trips aboard our larger ferries for a more leisurely exploration of the islands at a cost of £15 per person (under 14s half price; under 3s free). These boats are advertised on our weekly boating plan and daily boat times on our website and on island boat boards.
We sailed to the Eastern Isles where we saw lots of seals in the water and on the rocks. Then the skipper spotted gannets hunting, accompanied by porpoises and dolphins dipping and jumping through the waves, playing and crisscrossing under the boat. A magical trip.
