    Portsmouth FC v Walsall – Tuesday, 27 November 2018

    We expect our 22.45 Portsmouth Harbour FastCat sailing to be very busy on Tuesday, 27 November because of Portsmouth FC’s home game. If you want to be on board, you must book your ticket in advance and arrive no later than 22.30 to check in. If you have an ‘open’ return or plan to buy a single later, you will not be able to travel with us on the 22.45 sailing.

    We will treat holders of Multilink Pass tickets or Season tickets as pre-booked.

    Once the FastCat is full, the next ferry crossing to the Island will be the 23.59 car ferry from Portsmouth Car Ferry terminal. This sailing will connect with Southern Vectis route nine bus leaving at 00.50 from Fishbourne terminal. Tickets are available to purchase from the driver of the bus.
