Onward connections from St. Mary's to Tresco
If you’re heading to Tresco for your holiday, it’s likely that you will have booked your holiday through Tresco Island. This being the case, you will be greeted when you arrive on Scilly (Airport and Quay) by a Tresco Island representative who will ensure your smooth passage via the Tresco Shuttle and/or Tresco Boat Services.
If you are staying on Tresco but haven’t booked through Tresco Island, on arrival in St. Mary’s you will need to head for St. Mary’s Quay. From the airport, shuttle buses meet each and every flight. The drivers hover in the Arrivals Hall and are very happy to help. They will take you down to the Quay (it takes about 5 minutes) and ensure that you embark onto the correct boat. You will travel by Tresco Boat Services either on the Firethorn, Cyclone or Hurricane.
If you arrive in Scilly via the Scillonian III, you will already be on St. Mary’s Quay so you can transfer directly onto the connecting Tresco Boat to Tresco. So long as your luggage carries the blue label (these are handed out at Penzance Quay) your luggage will be transferred from the Scillonian directly onto the correct boat, so you don’t have to worry about it.
Once on Tresco, you will be met by your accommodation provider and taken to your cottage.
