Hovertravel - Isle of Wight Ferry



For seven days each week, Hovertravel operates an average of 450 crossings with two hovercraft. The frequency of service increases at commuter times in the morning and in the evening, with fewer crossings available in the middle of the day. Connections to onward travel on the mainland are made very easy with the HoverBus service which takes customers to Portsmouth city centre and to the rail stations.  


In 2013 Hovertravel added a new Android App, which along with the iPhone App launched in 2011, tracks the craft, confirms service updates and also shows the location of the Hoverbus. This is an efficient way for customers to keep up to date with their Hovertravel journey. The App also gives customers the opportunity to see the latest special offers, find out more about the bus and rail connections available from the Isle of Wight and Portsmouth, check fares and provides the contact information for Hovertravel.
