Situated as they are off the south western tip of the Cornish coast in the U.K. and benefiting from the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, the Isles of Scilly are a summer playground for boating enthusiasts or merely those that love the sea. Scilly Isles boating has a long, illustrious – and sometimes dangerous – history that makes for the perfect boating adventure.
The five islands that make up the Scillys – St. Mary’s, Tresco, St. Martin’s, Bryher, and St. Agnes – are all relatively close to each other making island hopping an accessible and immensely enjoyable experience. Spend the morning jumping onto unspoilt white sand beaches straight from your boat, or taking a dip in the temperate turquoise water.
