We really like this Experience in Ryde, Isle of Wight.
Experience the sheer thrill of riding a hovercraft during this hovercraft ride for two to the Isle of Wight. Travel on The World’s longest running commercial foot passenger service, which is the fastest way to cross The Solent between Southsea in Portsmouth and Ryde on the Isle of Wight in just 10 minutes! When the hovercraft reaches the Isle of Wight, you land in a prime sea front position along Ryde’s beautiful and inviting beaches. Next, it’s time to get off and enjoy what Ryde and the Isle of Wight has to offer including the beaches, boutique shops, bars and restaurants and travel links to elsewhere across the island! After a day of fun on the island, enjoy a same day return journey back to the Southsea terminal.
Runs daily throughout the year with services running every 30 minutes.
High winds and swells in the Solent may stop operation of the hovercraft service for safety reasons. If in any doubt, please call the service provider before setting off.
Lasts around half an hour from arriving at the port, including the 10 minute journey from Southsea to Ryde. The service operates every 30 minutes with an hourly service running in Winter months.
There is wheelchair accessibility on the hovercraft, however it only has space for one on each journey. Please advise at the time of booking.
There is a large council run car park in Portsmouth at the Southsea terminal.
