Explore the Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly lie just off the coast of Cornwall but they seem like a world apart. There are five inhabited islands – St. Mary’s, Tresco, St. Martin’s, Bryher and St. Agnes – and countless uninhabited islands to explore. Not only are the entire Isles of Scilly an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but 2,200 people are lucky enough to call it home. Ask a question.

7 day sail

Full board


A 7 day adventure sail with a duration of 2-3 days in the Isles of Scilly giving you time to explore. This cruise is undertaken using our 40′ yacht. The cruise can be quite challenging, so it is recommended that you have undertaken long day sails before. We plan for 1 or 2 stops on the outward and homeward leg. All efforts will be made to make the destination, but we reserve the right to convert the voyage into a south west cruise should the weather be untenable.


With 1 or 2 stops on the outward leg and 1 or 2 stops on the homeward one, we could visit some of these locations:

Fowey – A favourite our ours, with records dating back to the 11th century. Take a look at the you tube video.

Falmouth – A large, pretty town with beaches, and dripping in history. More about Falmouth.

Helford River –  A delightful, unspoilt estuary stretching from the outer edge of Falmouth Bay up to the old port of Gweek.

Newlyn – The most westerly we can go before the Scilly’s.


The usual mooring is at New Grimsby Sound which gives easy access to Tresco, Bryher and the ferry transport to explore the rest of the islands.

Tresco – from dramatic rocky outcrops, bronze age burial sites and romantic castle ruins, to secluded sandy beaches and, of course, the world famous Tresco Abbey Garden which was established in the 1830s by Augustus Smith. See the video.

Bryher – an island of dramatic contrast, being rocky on one side with beaches on the other. Dinner at the renowned Hell Bay Hotel is a welcome touch of comfort after a long sail!

St Mary’s –  the Scilly’s largest island with a population of 1,800. Hugh Town, the capital, has plenty of shops, banks, churches, cafés, galleries, restaurants and pubs as well as the wonderful museum.

We believe we’re that little bit better
