We know how important it is to provide up to date travel information to our customers. We update the Service status section of our website routinely every morning and again if more than one sailing is delayed by 20 minutes or more since the last message was posted. We’ll post another update if delays reach an hour or longer and when we return normal service.
The NEW timetable for sailings up to 19 December 2015 is now available for the Portsmouth <> Fishbourne route and can be viewed or downloaded here

Good luck from Wightlink to everyone taking part in the Portsmouth Triathlon on the morning of Sunday, 6 September 2015.
As roads around our Gunwharf terminal will be closed for the race, we will be operating from the Portsmouth International Ferryport (PiP). PO2 8RU
All customers travelling on the 07:00 sailing from Gunwharf should arrive at the Port no later than 06:30 to avoid road closures. All our customers are advised to allow extra time for their journey and to check in promptly 30 minutes before departure.
There are no onward connections for foot passengers from the PiP and so customers travelling without vehicles are advised to travel on our Portsmouth to Ryde Catamaran service to make onward connections on rail or foot.

If you are planning to drive a heavy lorry or large coach (more than 18 tonnes) to the Isle of Wight over the next few months, please read on….
A significant weight restriction will shortly be applied to Wootton Bridge on the A3054 over Wootton Creek to the west of Wightlink’s Fishbourne ferry terminal – the main road to Newport and the west of the Isle of Wight. This is because structural damage to the bridge has been discovered.
All vehicles over 18 tonnes gross weight will not be allowed to use the bridge from 23 July for several months until repairs are complete. The road over the bridge will be closed on Thursday night (23 July) from 18:30 until 06:30 on Friday morning for initial works and signage. Diversions will be signposted via Binstead, Ryde, Brading, Sandown, Lake and Arreton. A 20 mph speed limit is now in force between Firestone Copse Road at Kite Hill to New Road in Wootton Village.
