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.

"Holiday on the Isles of Scilly"
It's been on our bucket list for years, but we've never quite got around to booking a holiday on the Isles of Scilly. Until now. Booking the hotel was straightforward, although we were limited by availability. Booking the ferry was really easy. The crossing in both directions left and arrived on time, and there was plenty of seating for the passengers. The cafe on the lower deck seemed to have a good selection of drinks and snacks. Altogether it was a great experience. One we can't wait to repeat next year!

"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
