Today our 10 Scillonian III ferry wildlife guides undertook refresher training ahead of the 2017 season.

Each year these amazing volunteers point out the wildlife seen from the Scillonian III Ferry on Friday sailings. Passengers are delighted to learn about the seabirds, cetaceans and other species seen on theor passage to and from Scilly. 

The ferry will begin to sail again 1st February 2017 through to November www.islesofscilly-travel.co.uk/scillonian-iii/
