The stress-free option

Make sure you have travel insurance.

 

Book an overnight stay in Newquay on both legs of your journey, flying into St Mary's at 1:50pm, to give you a relaxing morning and be sure your accommodation is ready when you arrive on the Isles of Scilly.

 

For the return leg book a departure from St Mary's at 12:50pm. In the event of bad weather or poor visibility you may have an option to transfer to the boat, Scillonian III, which usually leaves St Mary's at 4.30pm and arrives in Penzance at 7:15pm - there are slight variations owing to tides. Transport between Newquay and Penzance can be arranged in advance to ensure you make your flight home the following day.
