  • Portsmouth: Hovercraft Flight to the Isle of Wight

    1. Portsmouth: Hovercraft Flight to the Isle of Wight

    Board your hovercraft for an adrenaline-filled day on the Isle of Wight. When the hovercraft reaches the island, you'll land in a prime sea front position along Ryde's beautiful and inviting beaches. Hop off and enjoy what Ryde and the Isle of Wight have 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. The journey across the Solent is approximately 10 minutes. So sit back, relax, and enjoy your flight on the World's only commercial passenger hovercraft service.

    When you the buy the tickets, you will be contacted asking to what time you want to go out and return, I sent these details to them 3 months in advance, They agreed with the times and issued tickets with these times. On arrival they told me the timetable had changed and we would have to catch the next one which was 30 minutes later than planned, the hovercraft had broken down and we were dealyed 2 hours in total, on Return we found that the time table again had changed and that crafts were now hourly instead of every 20 muinutes!, we had missed our booked return time, the next craft to depart was was fully booked we were put on standby, luckily spaces became available and we made it. I would say if you pay for parking, use RingGo app so you can extend your parking if things go wrong. Try to stick to your booking times if you can, the hovercraft is popular and gets booked up quickly.
