Explore the beautiful archipelago of the Isles of Scilly with classic boat Bessie Ellen under sail.

Experience the sub-tropical archipelago of the Isles of Scilly with tall ship Bessie Ellen as she sails from the coast of Cornwall.

You’ll be setting sail along the rugged south coast and crossing a 28 mile stretch of the Atlantic in order to reach the near-tropical archipelago of the Isles of Scilly. The 10-12 hour passage is well worth it. You’ll have the most tranquil week island-hopping in some of the clearest, warmest waters the UK has to offer. Walk barefoot on sandy shores, spot marine life and seabirds galore and experience the charming history of the UK’s most southerly archipelago.
