St. Mary's Boatmen's Association is used for all Off Island excursions.  Boat tickets are available from Will on the quay on the day of the tour.  There is no need to book in advance unless the reservation is for parties of 8 or more.  Just meet on the quay to the left of the Association ticket kiosk where you will see the Island Wildlife Tours board advertising details of that day's walk.

About Will

Will, originally from South Wales, came to live on the Isles of Scilly in 1981 after many years of holidaying here.

He first started leading guided wildlife walks on Scilly in 1985.  Since then he has led tours to many parts of the world, including several destinations in southern Europe, North Africa, South America and most recently Antarctica.  The Falkland Islands are his most frequented destination.  In 2001 he wrote the first guidebook to the Falklands, Falkland Islands: The Bradt Travel Guide and has just finished the second edition which was published in 2018.

Will spent 8 years as Conservation Officer and guide for the Islands' Environmental Trust (now Wildlife Trust) before returning to full time tour leading with his own business, Island Wildlife Tours.

Will was the bird recorder for the islands for  18 years and is currently the Honorary President and Chairman of the Isles of Scilly Bird Group.

Will now delights in sharing his love and knowledge of Scilly's natural history with hundreds of visitors each year.
