Yes the Penzance flights finished as you say. But they come from Newquay now, but maybe only on organised trips, ie to a specific hotel. Certainly saw and heard them in 2016 when I was last there.

However, they are supremely beautiful, and I have sailed there quite a few times, only once on the ferry in 1968! Well worth a holiday. Look forward seeing Dave's photos from there...
