Skybus will always try to accommodate passengers with special needs; however, restrictions placed upon us by the type of aircraft in service may mean we cannot cater for all requirements. Passengers with special needs who book their seats over the telephone must advise the company of their requirements at the time of booking. Passengers purchasing seats over the Internet must then contact the company quoting their booking reference, to give details of their requirements: telephone: 0845 710 5555 or send us an email.
Scillonian III crew will always try to accommodate passengers with special needs; however, due to the ships design and safety restrictions we may not be able to cater for all requirements.
On-board Scillonian III there is a Dolphin Stairlift on the main stairway between the Bridge Deck and Upper Deck, suitable to carry passengers up to 150kg. This is a 'person lift' and does not take a wheelchair. Passengers will need to be able to transfer from their chair onto the stairlift unaided, or with assistance from their own helper (Scillonian crew are not permitted to lift passengers).
Access to the ship is provided by a gangway and is not suitable for motorized buggies, these will be loaded as freight. Passengers who use motorized buggies can transfer to a standard wheelchair which we have available, however this must be pre-arranged. Please contact us by telephone if you have any extra requirements by calling 0845 710 5555
