Equipment Hire

For the more experienced, why not explore the waters at your own pace in one of our dinghies, day boats, sit-on kayaks or large range of windsurf equipment available for hire.

Scilly has some amazing areas to sail and the waters are very safe. However, our waters are tidal and the weather can change quickly, with natural hazards below the water’s surface. Because of this we must ensure our customers are suitably qualified or experienced to use the craft they have chosen.


To ensure you manage your craft with safety and confidence, we do have some guidelines in place for the level of competence required to hire our equipment. You can find the details of these under each equipment type.

A damage deposit will be asked for prior to the commencement of the hire, this deposit is equivalent to the insurance excess (normally £200) for boats and windsurf equipment or the value of the equipment (£30-£100) for wetsuits and buoyancy aids, etc. Any damage and breakages caused will be charged for.

Activity Specials
