Wightlink is the leading cross-Solent ferry operator. It carries almost five million holidaymakers and Islanders across the Solent every year. It offers 46,000 sailings a year, utilising nine ferries on three routes. Crossing times are just 22 minutes by Wightlink’s FastCat between Portsmouth and Ryde Pier Head, around 40 minutes by car ferry between Lymington and Yarmouth and around 45 minutes by car ferry between Portsmouth and Fishbourne.

The ferries offer comfortable lounges, open decks and refreshment facilities (car ferries only) and Wightlink’s dedicated Terminals also have a range of facilities.

Wightlink has a long and proud history of supporting holidaymakers and local people alike. It works closely with the tourism organisation Visit Isle of Wight to promote the Island as one of the UK’s top visitor attractions. Closer to home, the company backs Island charities, arts groups and sports teams to the tune of £350,000 a year.
