Hovertravel is the world’s only commercial passenger hovercraft service. Flying across the Solent, from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight in just ten minutes, the hovercraft skims across the sea at up to 45 knots on a cushion of air. Passengers enjoy this thrilling experience inside a light and spacious cabin, with large picture windows giving great views of the Solent and a wide variety of marine traffic. Landing directly on the beach, with neighbouring onward train and bus links providing access to all the Island, our speedy hovercraft help visitors make the most their Isle of Wight trip.
