Scillonian III will set sail again on Monday, 18th March 2024, transporting tens of thousands of passengers to and from the Isles of Scilly.

During 2023, the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group’s much-loved passenger ferry transported over 118,000 passengers to the islands.

This year, the Group is continuing to strengthen the ease of travel to and from the islands with the introduction of online check-in.

It is now possible to check-in for each journey online 24 hours before the scheduled departure time. As a result, passengers arriving for their sailing will be able to bypass the check in queue and proceed to embarkation.

The popular Locals’ Offer is being reintroduced with the new season, with a day trip costing £25 for those who are a resident of Cornwall.

This offer is part of the Group’s commitment to not only provide exceptional customer service, but to help make the islands more accessible for people to enjoy and explore. With cheaper fares, there is even more reason for locals to finally see all that the islands have to offer.

The start of the new season follows Scillonian III’s busy maintenance period, where the crew has been working hard checking and surveying equipment, training new staff, and finishing all internal and external paintworks. With this all now complete, Scillonian is ready to embark on her first voyage of the season, and welcome both new and familiar faces to Scilly.

The Steamship Group is looking forward to another year of connecting the islands with the mainland on Scillonian III, a route that has been named by ORCA as the UK’s best for wildlife spotting for a second year in a row.
