Live timetables

The best way to look at our scheduled sailings is to search for a crossing using our real-time Isle of Wight ferry timetable. Live timetables take into account up-to-date changes and so offer the best reflection of our service.

Booking availability

Just so you know, on our live timetable, sailings within an hour will be displayed but can’t be booked online.

Restricted foot passenger sailings

Due to a change in freight regulations, we have had to restrict the number of customers who are able to travel on some services. All foot passengers must book in advance on these sailings. Read our travel updates below for more information.

Railway strikes

All Wightlink’s ferry and FastCat routes will be running normally this week although strikes by the RMT Union will affect many train services across the South Western Railway network.

The train strikes will take place on Tuesday, 21 June, Thursday, 23 June and Saturday, 25 June.

Island Line trains will still be operating but there will be a revised timetable elsewhere with far fewer trains than normal. No trains will run between Brockenhurst and Lymington Pier.

There will be a Sunday service on the SWR network on Wednesday 22 June and Friday 24 June.

For more information on the train strikes, see: www.southwesternrailway.com/strike
