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.

  • "Day out in St Mary’s "

    This ferry service is excellent. Seating is comfy. Toilets are very well kept and clean. We travelled out of English school holidays and so probably not as busy as other times, but great. We’re lookjng to book a weeks accommodation for next year very soon.

  • "Our trip on board the Scillonion "

    The check in staff were polite, pleasant and helpful especially since we had forgotten to bring our printed travel information with us. The handling of our baggage was fast and efficient. No problem boarding and there was a good choice of seats available. There is a good selection of food and beverages at the cafe. Both trips going and returning were pleasant and we will certainly travel this way again to the Isles of Scilly.

    Lovely journey through some famous landmarks,although it would have been nice if some sort of commentary took place. Nice to see dolphins. Scillonian 3 is a nice size,and the food in the 2 cafes was good and reasonably priced
