*Our services are operating on time. Please continue to wear a face covering and book your tickets online.*

Enhanced Hygiene

When travelling please consider your fellow passengers and our staff so we can all keep each other as safe as possible. Throughout the pandemic we have followed the Government guidance and we will continue to be vigilant about hygiene for our customers and staff.


Face Coverings

Whilst we recognise the law has changed, we, along with the other ferry operators and the Isle of Wight Council, will continue to ask for face coverings to be worn during your journey.  We believe that this measure is an important step in safeguarding our passengers and our people.

  • Our peak passenger times are 0615-0815 and 1630-1830 (Mon-Fri)
  • Please give other passengers their space during boarding/disembarking
