Isles Of Scilly Travel

Isles of Scilly Travel operate a passenger ferry service from Penzance harbour in Cornwall on the south west of England to St Mary’s harbour on the west side St Mary’s island on the Isles of Scilly.

The Isles of Scilly ferry service was formed in 1920 with the sole purpose of securing a regular shipping line between mainland England and the Isles. Now, nearly a century on, the service is running daily from March to November crossing the twenty eight mile stretch in under three hours.

The Scillonian III ferry operates the crossing and has been in operation since the late seventies. The ship can hold up to 485 passengers and on board you’ll find two café bars serving a variety of hot and cold snacks as well as Hot drinks, and alcoholic or soft drinks. The journey also provides a great opportunity to watch for dolphins and of course to take in Cornwall’s iconic coastline.

With you can find Isles Of Scilly Travel timetables, fares and book Isles Of Scilly Travel ferry tickets. Where applicable we’ll also compare Isles Of Scilly Travel with alternative ferry companies.

Isles Of Scilly Travel Customer Reviews

  • "Return St Mar'y October2019"

    Despite an extremely tough crossing outbound from Penzance, the ship was on time and the crew courteous. The return was 30mins early on calmer seas.

  • "Fabulous trip but collecting luggage is quite a challenge"

    I think a better organized and more secure system for luggage collection is badly needed on return to Penzance. I caught someone walking off with my bag who was subsequently very rude when I challenged him. It would be very easy to steal bags and also to have an accident falling over the piles of luggage left on the ground
