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.

"First time visit to Isles of Scilly"
The ferry service is well run and staff get the luggage on and off quickly. Comfortable seats and plenty of room. Journey across is spectacular but ferry can roll if sea is choppy and anti sea sickness tablets recommended if not a good sailor. Left mobile on seat when I disembarked but rung the office and most helpful in locating it for me.

Dear Sir/Maddam Was very disapointed as the time of just 4 hours was not enough time on the island to see much, it would have been better if the ferry sailed at 8am and retuned at 8pm, which would have allowed us to travel to Tresco to see the gardens and have enough time to see the rest of St Mary, as by the time we reached St Mary, there was no boats goint to Tresco until 3pm which was not enough time to go there as the ferry was leaving St Mary at 16.30, so we had to be onboard by 4pm, so a wasted journey, as unfortunatly I don't have enough time to stay on the island for more than a day, and the main point of going there was to see the abby gardens on Tresco so my wife and I wasted £110
