Boat hire, Isles of Scilly

Hire your own boat and explore the tranquil clear waters of Scilly at your own pace.

Cruise between the islands, visit uninhabited shores, fish from your boat (fishing lines available to hire), take a picnic, moor up and explore...

The possibilities are endless and with a safety boat doing regular patrols and staff always ready to lend a hand if you’re at all unsure, this really is an option available to all.

Explore by boat

We are based at Green Bay on Bryher.  We have hire points on St Martin’s and deliver to Tresco by arrangement.  If you are staying on the other islands, please make your way to Bryher, Tresco or St Martin’s for the day and we will fit the hire around your inter-island launch times.

We hire motor catamarans, small motor boats, a range of sailing dinghies and stable sit on top kayaks.  We provide buoyancy aids, full safety equipment and give comprehensive instruction on boat handling.

Hire tariff

We hire from 9.30am to 6pm with half day hires from 9.30am - 1pm or from 2pm - 6pm.  We can also arrange hire times around inter-island launches.

Boats can also be delivered to Tresco for a small fee.  £5 to New Grimsby and £10 to Old Grimsby. We are here to help, call us to discuss your hire requirements.
