Getting to Scilly

There is an airport on St Mary’s with scheduled fixed wing flights from various South West destinations.

The Scillonian III foot passenger ferry sails from Penzance to St Mary’s spring to autumn giving you an exciting opportunity to view some of the islands' special seabirds, whales, dolphins, porpoises, sunfish, or basking sharks.  

A discount on day returns is available from the Steamship Company for RSPB members on Friday sailings with the wildlife guides. Please quote membership number at the time of booking. Booking essential.
