Following increased demand for cross-Solent travel, Wightlink is pleased to announce more services on its Portsmouth-Fishbourne and Lymington-Yarmouth routes in August.

Portsmouth-Fishbourne: There will be three extra round-trip sailings on Fridays in August and on Monday 10 August.

Lymington-Yarmouth: There will also be three extra round-trip sailings throughout the week from Monday 10 August to Monday 31 August.

“The Isle of Wight is bound to be a very popular holiday destination this summer,” says Wightlink Chief Executive Keith Greenfield.

“We look forward to welcoming more customers on their way to a memorable holiday on our beautiful Island. However, as capacity on board has been reduced to allow social distancing, you must book your place in advance, whether you’re bringing a vehicle or travelling as a foot passenger.”
