Island Hopping

  1. Scheduled Tripper Boats
    There’s plenty of choice whichever island you’re based on. All the islands have a dedicated boat service offering daily scheduled trips. St. Mary’s Boatmen’s Association operates tripper boats to all the other inhabited islands (and some of the uninhabited ones) every day. They usually head off around 10am and 2pm returning at 2.30pm and 4.30 / 5.30pm. St. Agnes Boating operates out of St. Agnes and goes so St. Mary’s every day and the other islands at least once a week. Tresco Boat Services operates scheduled tripper boats from Tresco, Bryher and St. Martin’s with regular boats to St. Mary’s and the other islands.
  2. A Trip to Bishop Rock
    Four miles west of the Isles of Scilly in the Atlantic Ocean stands Bishop Rock Lighthouse, built in 1858 to mark a rock ledge 45 metres long and 16 metres wide – the islands’ most westerly danger.
  3. Uninhabited Islands
    Amazing islands - some that once supported communities; others that lie undisturbed and wild for our birds and wildlife to thrive.
  4. Drawn to the seas around Scilly
    Wyl Menmuir, award-winning Cornish writer and frequent visitor to the Isles, shares the emotions Scilly envokes whenever he steps foot on our shores.
