  • "MY trip and the price"

    Had a lovely journey on 24th to the Scillies and am wondering why my passage costs £139.00 when the going price for a day trip is only £35.00 Could you loook into this please as perhaps I am eligible for a good refund. SC

  • "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.
