  • "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.

  • "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.

    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
