Absolutely nothing wrong with this service. I use it to visit clients on the Isle of Wight all the time. Cheap/Quick/Efficient. What more could you ask for?

20 Dec 2010Delayed trip due to weather.
The weather was really bad when we went to the Isle of Wight. They cancelled the hovercraft because the waves were too high. Not happy. Got a refund though.
