Sun, sand, sea and serious Scilly fun awaits you
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 safety boats 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.
We hire motor catamarans, small motor boats, a range of sailing dinghies and day boats, stable sit on top kayaks and transparent kayaks, stand up paddleboards and pedalboards. All our equipment is well-serviced and maintained to a high standard.
No previous experience on the water is necessary- we provide buoyancy aids and full safety equipment and give comprehensive instruction on boat handling. We only ask that you’ve got prior knowledge for use of our sailing boats.
We are based at Green Bay on Bryher. We deliver to Tresco and St Martin’s by arrangement. If you are staying on the other islands, please make your way to Bryher for the day and we will fit the hire around your inter-island launch times.
