Bryher (and Tresco) Boat Services
Bryher Boat Services is a family run business based on Bryher who operate trips for guests staying both on Bryher and Tresco. All boats are licensed by the Maritime Coastguard Agency. Fares are paid in cash, on board; there is no need to book most trips in advance unless specified. There are two quays on Bryher and three on Tresco so please check the board locally to see where the trips are departing from, as it is tide dependent.
The boats include Cyclone & Hurricane - two jet boats capable of speed while remaining comfortable. Throughout the high season they offer one hour high speed trips for an overview of the islands and to approach wildlife close up.
Firethorn is the largest passenger boat and runs regular ferry services from Tresco and Bryher to the other islands. Trips run between Tresco and Bryher everyday, St.Mary's Monday to Saturday, St.Martins Monday, Wednesday and Friday and St.Agnes Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. Firethorn also follows the gig race on a Friday evening during the gig season. Bryher Boat Services provide circular trips twice a week to the rocks and uninhabited isles for seal and bird spotting, including puffins from April to July.
Faldore is licensed to carry 60 passengers and is available for leisurely private hire. Explore ancient sites on St Helen's, take a picnic on Samson or sunbathe on Tean's deserted sands. Whatever your plans Bryher Boat Services will help you get the best from Scilly. Experience the islands your way and at your pace with a private boat charter, available all year.
Half day fishing trips are also available twice a week, all gear is provided and you are likely to catch mackerel, pollock or wrasse.
