We suggest that you book your accommodation as early as possible, especially for July and August as these are the main months for tourism in Scilly. At this time of year some flights get fully booked. Normally there is availability on RMS Scillonian III at late notice even in July and August. The links below will assist you in your travel and accommodation arrangements.

Shuttles await all arrivals at the Airport to take you to your accommodation. Taxis are reasonably priced and will pick you up at the Airport or Quay, or run you to the Quay for your pelagic trip.

We strongly recommend that you book your accommodation on St Mary’s since all pelagic trips leave from St Mary’s Quay. If you are staying off St Mary’s then you will have to make special arrangements with inter-island boat services to get to and return from St Mary’s, and this may be costly. You can contact the various boat services through the following telephone numbers.
