Getting to St Agnes
Whichever mode of transport you use to get here, by air or sea the views are simply stunning and definitely an experience in themselves. To get to St Agnes you will have to go via St Marys, all journeys from the UK mainland to St Marys are bookable through IOS Travel or Penzance Helicopters.
The Scillonian ferry runs from March through to October/November and during most summer months it runs once daily. It is very important to pre book your ticket well in advance of your holiday to avoid any disappointment. To catch the Scillonian you will need to arrive at Penzance Harbour in Cornwall at least an hour before the departure time of you pre booked sailing. The journey takes around 3 hours and is truly beautiful if you're lucky you might even see a pod of dolphins, porpoises, a rare sunfish or even a minke whale.
The views from a flight over the islands is truly amazing and it is a very unique experience in the tiny approx 12 seater planes. Flights run daily from Newquay and Lands End Airports and 3-5 days a week to Exeter in peak season, from further afield there are also connecting flights across the country. You could also treat yourself to a truly exhilarating experience and fly over by helicopter from Penzance Heliport (flights almost daily check their website for the schedule). Again pre-booking for flights is essential. All flights are only as far as St Marys or Tresco so please check the timings of the connecting boat to St Agnes (see below). Please be aware that ALL flights are weather permitting so ensure you have appropriate travel insurance.
FROM ST MARYS TO ST AGNES
To get from St Marys the largest island to our tiny island of St Agnes you will need to get on the "The Spirit of St Agnes" a small catamaran ferry or the 'Enterprise' small passenger ferry, this journey will only take 15 mins and it departs from St Marys Quay. There is a weekly timetable for this boat available from St Agnes Boating. To give you an idea one adult one way is usually around £5. You can either prebook this journey on St Agnes Boatings website or pay on board. If you are on the Scillonian ferry there will always be a boat to meet you however if you're flying and flight time is early in the morning or later in the day you may need to charter a private boat for around £50 one way.
For those wishing to travel to the Isles of Scilly in their own small aircraft we recommend you contact St Mary's Airport for advice and instructions.
Yacht owners looking for insured secure mooring should contact St Mary's Harbour for more information and details of how to book in advance. Otherwise you can simply drop an anchor for free in most weathers in 'The Cove' (Covean) on St Agnes.
