ConsDelays unavoidable, very expensive

Wightlink Ferries Having booked our Isle of Wight holiday, we had to consider how we were going to get there on account of it being an island! Living a couple of hours from the coast, we knew we were going to need to take our car with us (which we would have wanted anyway as I hate relying on...

“Ferry Across The Solent!”

published 24/05/2009

ProReliable and quick.

ConsThe price is a variant!

To get to the Isle of Wight there is only one way..... by boat. There is no tunnel or bridge so everyone has to get a boat or if taking a car then the only option is by ferry. The other half and I decided to spend a three night break on the island, and although the island itself is a great place...

ProEfficient booking sevice

ConsExpect delays

Having taken our main holiday in April this year, we felt we needed a short break during the school summer holidays, so we decided to book a long weekend in the Isle of Wight. Both my husband and I had spent family holidays there as children, and, neither of us having been back for several years...

We have friends who live on the Isle of Wight, so we have occasion to go there from our home in west London quite often. Not being too strong a swimmer, I have now used all of the most common methods of crossing. Since Wightlink operate the lion’s share of these, I am filing this opinion...

ProGets you on and off the Island!

Consway Too Expensive!!

Living on the Isle of Wight there is only a few ways to get off the island and they all involve a sea vessel of some sort. One of the two companies that run Catamarans and Ferries to and from the Island are Wightlink, (the other being Redfunnel). Wightlink History ---------------------- Ferries...

ProHassle-free travel. Excellent views. Helpful staff

ConsExpensive. Not many facilities.

During a recent camping trip in The New Forest my boyfriend and I discovered the WightLink ferry service from nearby Lymington to Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight. We decided to take advantage of WightLink's 'Early Bird Day Return' special offer that was being advertised while we were in the area...

ProGets you to the Island

ConsExpensive!

I go to the Isle of Wight for my main summer holiday every year, and we always travel with Wightlink. Despite the fact that the ferries are very expensive, we've never used one of the other ferry companies that operate on The Solent. I can only relate my experiences from the Portsmouth ferry port...

“WE ARE SAILING.....”

ProClean, on time, value for money

ConsNo proper place for luggage on deck

I used Wightlink Ferries back in July to travel to the Isle of Wight (Ryde Pierhead) for a week's holiday. We were going to take the car across on the car ferry but decided against it as it went to another port on the island and was a bit out of the way. Wightlink Ferries operate three routes to...

“Is all that money worth it?”

published 11/04/2006

ProPeaceful trip from quiet port (most of the time!)

ConsThe price

When you compare the prices of Southampton - Cowes and Lymington to practically anywhere it seems a simple decision - Red Funnel is half the price in some cases. But having travelled to the Isle of Wight to see my family many times a year since I was tiny, there is a reason why my parents always...
