Important Information

If you’re planning to carry goods between the Isle of Wight and Hampshire on a Wightlink ferry, there’s some important information you may need to know.

Dangerous goods (ADR)

We can carry a large variety of different substances, but some are restricted by regulations and must be declared at least 24 hours in advance of your sailing. Find out what you can bring.
