The isles of scilly

Isles of Scilly Travel and Penzance Helicopters are the links between the Isles of Scilly and the mainland. They provide day trip visitors and holidaymakers from across the UK and beyond with a taste of Island life, whilst supplying island residents with an easy and frequent service to the mainland.



The Scillonian III passenger ferry sails between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly on a daily basis, taking as little as 2 hours and 40 minutes from March to November and Sunday sailings operate from July to September for the summer season. To travel by sea visit the Scillonian III time table page for departure and arrival times.

Travel time: 2 Hours 40 minutes



Alternatively fly to the Isles of Scilly on Skybus, the Islands’ own airline from Exeter, Newquay and Land’s End airports, six days a week. Skybus flies all year round and flight times can be found on the Skybus Timetable page. 

You can also now fly to the Isles of Scilly by helicopter again. These leave from Penzance, serving the islands of St Mary’s and Tresco. For more information see the Penzance Helicopters webpage here.
