    Trip to Amazon World !!
    • Southsea to Ryde with Hovertravel

      My husband and I decided to take our Grandchildren on the Hovercraft as a new experience as we have taken them to the IOW on the ferry before. We had booked to go for 11.30 but unfortunately just couldn't find anywhere nearby to park and was delayed by an hour. We were allowed to travel on the next one available and the boys really enjoyed their rides. Won't do it again though because of the time wasted waiting for buses.

    Hovercraft to the Isle of Wight
    • Southsea to Ryde with Hovertravel

      The hovercraft is the quickest and cheapest way to travel to the Isle of Wight if not taking a car. For passengers driving to the Southsea terminal there is 24 hour parking at two Council nearby car parks and this can be extended by telephone if required.
