Day trip with a baby??? Help

Hi we are planning a day trip by boat with a baby, and was wondering if when we get there if it would be suitable for a pram ? we have a Rucksack that we can carry him in,just worried as it will be a long day if we didn't take the buggy.... Also what is there to do when we get there?

Thanks any advice is greatly appreciated

are you thinking of a day trip from Penzance to the Scilly Isles on the Scillonian with a baby? not my idea of fun, nor the baby's I expect.

Have to agree with previous post. The trip is 2 hours 40 each way (which can be choppy, particularly on the way out) and you will only have about 3.5 hours on the islands, nowhere near enough time to enjoy these beautiful islands.

Yes a buggy would be no problem on and off the boat, presuming it folds up. Once you are there, you would have no problems on ST Marys with it.

The crossing can be rough but often its fine, just depends on the weather.
