We are the main link between the Isle of Wight and the mainland. Every year, we carry over 4.8 million passengers, making us one of the UK’s largest domestic ferry operators. We provide Island residents with an easy and frequent service to the mainland, as well as giving millions of holidaymakers from all across the UK and beyond a taste of Island life.

At approximately 22 minutes a crossing on the catamaran and from 40 minutes by car ferry, there’s no easier way to get across the Solent. And with our three great routes and just under 48,000 crossings a year, we are the most flexible too. We are also dedicated to giving excellent customer service and facilities to make the trip even more enjoyable.

As most people who travel to and from the Island go with us, we are truly a part of Island life. We are proud to support IOW communities wherever we can, from sports sponsorship to local regeneration projects. Not forgetting the great value Multilink Pass tickets we offer all Isle of Wight residents, so they can pop over to the mainland whenever they want.

We look forward to welcoming you onboard soon.
