Island hopping

St Mary’s harbour and quays on St Agnes Tresco Bryher and St Martin’s 01720 423 999

We say

In a destination where two-thirds of the landscape is water, the best way to explore the Scillies, enjoy the scenery and fill your lungs with the fresh, briny air, is to hop from island to island onboard the regular ferries. The St Mary’s Boatmen’s Association runs a fleet of 10 boats from the main island, and each island has its own ferry taking passengers to different destinations each day. Circular trips and day returns available.

Paradise in your pocket ★★★★★

When you fly in on one of the planes or helicopters on a warm and sunny day with blue seas and skies, looking down on St Mary's as you come in to land, the island looks just so perfect, like a jewel in the Caribbean Sea, tiny, welcoming, surrounded by a myriad of diamonds and emeralds sparkling and twinkling in the suns rays. Just like a miniature Paradise that you could scoop up and put in your pocket.

There's no better way to travel. ★★★★★

There can be no better way to enjoy these beautiful Islands than to jump on a boat and be transported through time to one of the other Islands to a world of ye olde worlde charm. Discover treasures of yesteryear while gently ambling around these islands, soaking in all the magnificent scenery and delightful views. If you are only in the Islands for a short visit then jump on one of the 'Three Islands in One day' boats and get a potted version of a weeks holiday in one day. You won't be sorry.
