The unique way to the Isle of Wight Festival

Hovertravel is world’s only year-round scheduled passenger hovercraft service and you can use it to get to the Isle of Wight Festival.


Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, explains: “Travelling by hovercraft to the Isle of Wight Festival is the fastest and most fun way to get to this exciting event. We land on the shore at Ryde, so no need to carry your festival luggage up a pier and our hovercraft flight takes less than ten minutes.”

This foot passenger ferry service starts from Southsea which is easily reached by road or bus, with an easy drop-zone and plenty of parking. There is also a connecting bus (the H1 Hoverbus which takes you from both train stations in Portsmouth to the Hovertravel terminal in minutes).
