Add a hovercraft to your wedding
Hovertravel has a range of options from group discounts on its timetabled operation to a full private charter. “Using a hovercraft as part of your big day is a great way to add something unique to your wedding,” says Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, “our hovercraft are so different and everyone loves the thrill of travelling across the water on a cushion of air.”
Hovertravel speeds across the water at up to 45 knots and glides effortlessly on to land, creating an unforgettable experience for up to 78 passengers per craft. With the short ten-minute crossing time from Southsea to Ryde you could even consider getting married in Portsmouth and having a reception on the Isle of Wight! Or choose the hovercraft to start your honeymoon on the Island.
For an added touch of exclusivity, you can book your own private charter which can depart and arrive at our existing hover ports in Southsea and Ryde, as well as other locations on request including Lee on Solent and selected Isle of Wight beaches. Imagine having complete use of a hovercraft just for your guests and landing on a sandy beach! Or maybe arrange to have your speeches delivered floating in the middle of the Solent.Loretta adds: “When you charter our hovercraft, you get a full complement of crew and a pilot.
We can help you design your own itinerary, which can include the opportunity to hover around the Solent for sightseeing as well as whisking your wedding guests to your reception.” Please email
to discuss your requirements.
