Summer Trip to the Isles of Scilly

It has been 15 long years since the Braintree Canoeing Club has set foot on the Isles of Scilly, An Archipelago of 5 inhabited islands and countless uninhabited islands and rocks including the Bishop Rock Lighthouse.

Based on St. Marys the largest Island the Scillies are arranged perfectly for day trips, for paddlers and non paddlers alike. There is a frequent inter-island boat service between all the inhabited islands. Linking those who want to paddle with those who don’t, some join up to explore the smaller isles, whilst others spend the day paddling around the islands large and small. Returning to St. Marys each evening.

Hugh Town is a lively little town with several pubs and places to eat, along with a good supermarket and bakers.

Our trip will be from Saturday 25th July to Saturday 1st August. The ferry leaves Penzance At

10.15 am (anyone loading cargo must be there one and a half hours before) and every one travelling on the ferry will need photographic id i.e. driving licence or passport. The ferry is not a car ferry, just a foot ferry with a cargo hold, there are several company’s in Penzance offering secure parking for the week, and its best to book I advance if you want to take advantage of this.

The Costs Are

The ferry per person £98 return

The ferry per kayak £75 return

The camping per person £83.50 Inc. luggage transfer

Total cost per person with kayak £256.50 for the week (Sat to Sat)

Total cost per person without kayak £181.50 for the week (Sat to Sat)

Payable to the Braintree Canoeing Club

The ferry kayak cost may be reduced according to how many kayaks we can get on the trailer,

The trailer will take 10 or 11 kayaks, these places will be booked on a first come first serve basis, and any additional kayaks will have to be loaded in the hold separately.

It is IMPORTANT to point out that by booking a place it makes you liable for the full cost as we have to book both ferry and camp site in advance.

If there are any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    Hi Paul

    Please can you count Paul and I in for the Scillies trip. We will of course be bringing our double sea kayak so would like trailer space please. Very excited and really looking forward to it. We spoke to some guys at Boat Show who were promoting Tresco which looks lovely.

    I will send you a cheque.

    Thank you for all the details.
