Live service status

Stay up to date with our live ferry updates

Find out whether our vehicle ferries and FastCats are running on time and check the live status of the Wightlink service using our ferry locations map.

We update our service status regularly throughout the day, bringing you news of any delays and cancellations.

Please check in for your sailing between one hour and half an hour before your scheduled departure time.

If your sailing is delayed, please check in half an hour before your scheduled crossing time as you would normally – we’ll be working hard to make up the time.

If the sailing you’ve booked on is cancelled, we’ll be in touch with you directly to let you know what you can do.

Restricted foot passenger sailings

On certain sailings, we have to restrict the number of customers who are able to travel. All foot passengers must book in advance on these sailings – please check these sailings before turning up at the port without a booking, as we may not be able to accommodate you.

Harbour FastCat - Temporary Boarding and Discharge Changes

Tuesday, 20 February – Tuesday, 5 March 2024

To allow essential maintenance of the gangway at our Portsmouth Harbour FastCat port, boarding and discharging the vessels will change during this period.

All customers will board from the Portsmouth Harbour South End berth which includes a steep slope and a small number of steps. There will be no changes at Ryde Pier Head.

Customers with wheelchairs, mobility scooters, prams and heavy luggage are advised to use our Car Ferry service from Portsmouth-Fishbourne or travel with HoverTravel during this time.

Wightlink tickets, including Multilink and Season ticket passes, will be accepted on all HoverTravel services including the Hover Bus from Southsea to Portsmouth Hard.

Kind regards
