Discover Over and Underwater Fun

Isles of Scilly

Scilly is the perfect place to come and have fun on or under the water! A wide range of activities and sports await you on the Isles.

Whether you’re an open-water adrenaline-seeker or a beginner who wants to master a skill in a sheltered bay, Scilly is the perfect place to try your hand at all manner of water-based activities.  

If you are looking for a real buzz on the water, try your hand at a host of watersports, from sailing and kayaking to windsurfing and kite-surfing. There are opportunities on all the islands catering to all ages and abilities, and all equipment can be hired.

Snorkelling with seals is a must when on Scilly. Playful ad graceful, they make for fantastic new friends! 

The Isles of Scilly has been selected to host the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series Event in the UK. This is the first time that a qualifying race for this unique Swimrun World Championship race has ever been held in the UK. The event will take place on Saturday 18th June 2016.
