Red Funnel is the original Isle of Wight ferry company with a history spanning over 153 years in its present form but with roots stretching back as far as 1820. Much has changed since Red Funnel’s paddle steamers ran excursions from Southampton as far as Brighton, Cherbourg and Torquay but they are still just as passionate about delivering great customer service and providing value for money. Today, Red Funnel operates 24/7, 365 days a year with a modern fleet of passenger and vehicle ferries. Their staff are trained to deliver a level of service that strives to exceed your expectations. Onboard you will find a great range of locally sourced food, real coffee, a well stocked bar and relaxing lounges with modern facilities such as air conditioning, TV’s and FREE WiFi. If you love a sea breeze, the outer decks offer fine views of the Solent – there’s even a Top Deck BBQ on Red Eagle on busier days!
