About

The itinerary varies from week to week. Tours usually leave at 9.45 from St.Marys' quay for the Off Islands or 10.00 from Porthcressa Bank for the St. Marys' walk, every week day morning between April and late October.

On Tresco we take a look around the inland pools, perhaps stopping at the hides to view the resident and migrant waterfowl. We then cross the Island via the farm tracks encountering a variety of flora and fauna.

We will spend the morning on St. Agnes exploring the environs of the pool and the surrounding patchwork fields. Depending on the state of the tide, the afternoon is spent on either Gugh or Wingletang Down.

Our time on Bryher is spent following the coastal paths from the sheltered southern beaches in the morning, then via the pool to the rugged expanse of Hell Bay later in the day.

The sheltered farmland is our first destination on St.Martins, with a stroll around the coast in the afternoon scanning for passing sea birds and examining the local flora.

After inspecting the town beaches of St. Mary’s for sea and shore birds, we end the morning in Lower Moors. After lunch we head for Porth Hellick returning via the coastal path and back to Hugh Town.

 

Half day or full day tours are available. Lunch is taken each day at one of the local pubs, hotels or cafés (not included in price).

See boards on St Mary’s quay for daily updates and other possible trips with Will.

Also, take an illustrated walk with Will at his Wildlife of Scilly Saturday evening slideshow at the Church Hall on St. Mary's.
