Hover Experience

Flying on our Hovercraft is the fastest way to travel across the Solent between Portsmouth & Isle Of Wight and have been since 1965. Do you fancy going behind the scenes to understand how the hovercraft work and travel on a specially chartered service?, then the ‘Hover Experience’ might be for you.   


Chartering one of our hovercraft seating 78 passengers and up to one guest in a wheelchair, will typically offer the following (these can be tailored to the needs of the group organiser as required):

  • 20 minutes ‘Hovercraft Demo’ – you will fly across the water as the Pilot explains and shows the truly remarkable manouvres of the hovercraft.
  • Meet the Pilot & Crew Q&A opportunity.
  • Time to walk around the hovercraft and gather a understanding as how this amphibious craft work.
  • Certificate of your journey.
  • 20% off Hover Merchandise.
  • For extra special surprise for the children - meet Henri HoverBear

Departures available throughout the year from

  • Southsea, Portsmouth         
  • Ryde, Isle of Wight
  • Daedalus, Gosport

Length of the Hover Experience is 90 minutes, but can be amended to suit your group’s needs. Perfect for a Group Day Out, maybe a special occasion, or a Corporate away day.
