St. Agnes boating is a family-run business, run by the Peacock family on St. Agnes since 1994 when the purpose built boat, Spirit of St Agnes, arrived in Scilly.

this is our story

Our Boats

Spirit of St Agnes

The Spirit was built especially for St. Agnes Boating – a catamaran perfect for carving through the deeper waters between St. Agnes and the rest of the archipelago. She is used as the main boat – offering regular transfers between the islands and servicing the arrivals and departures of the Scillonian III and flights into St. Mary’s.


The Enterprise is the smaller of our two boats, with a capacity of 66 passengers. Enterprise is used mostly for private tours and transfers, or when the Spirit if out of the water, e.g. for a service
