Wightlink Ferries - Isle of Wight Ferry



Wightlink sails between the mainland and the Isle of Wight up to 230 times a day on three routes. The trip across the Solent is an adventure in itself on one of the world’s busiest stretches of water – with ships large and small to spot on the way. Just far enough across the water to make it feel like a real ‘overseas’ break away, getting to the Isle of Wight is an absolute breeze on Wightlink’s fleet of car and passenger ferries.



1. Gunwharf, Portsmouth to Ryde Pier, IOW... catamaran for travelling by foot - 22 minutes.

2. Gunwharf, Portsmouth to Fishbourne, IOW... vehicle ferry - 40 minutes.

3. Lymington, Hampshire to Yarmouth, IOW... vehicle ferry - 35 minutes.

You are welcome to use any ferry travelling as a foot passenger!
