Scilly Isles Adventure
The Scilly Isles Adventure allows you to head to sea properly and out into the Atlantic ocean. Really get into life aboard a Tall Ship and get involved with all aspects of sailing Helen Mary R. We aim to allow a good bit of time to head ashore and explore, but as distances increase so does our reliance on weather windows & conditions. Adventure sailing trips are great intermediaries between explorers and expeditions.Apply today
