The World's Only Year-Round Passenger Hovercraft Service

As the only year-round commercial passenger hovercraft service, Hovertravel offers a truly unique opportunity for film-makers to capture this amphibious mode of transport. The hovercraft’s ability to speed across water at up to 45 knots and glide effortlessly on to land creates a thrilling experience for both passengers and viewers.


It is possible to film the hovercraft in action on the Solent, onboard inside the light and airy passenger cabin as well as using the terminal facilities at both Ryde and Southsea, subject to operational constraints. We regularly host crews from the BBC, corporate video producers, independent TV production companies as well as international productions. Our hovercraft have featured in documentaries, comedies, promotional videos, corporate advertising and travel programmes around the world.


Hovertravel welcomes film crews, programme makers and news media to its operation and has a well-established procedure for all enquiries to ensure we adhere not just to our strict safety guidelines but also to all current and relevant regulations including GDPR.


It should also be noted that filming on or of our hovercraft is subject to the discretion of the pilot of that craft and they can delay or cancel planned filming if they consider the conditions on the day to be unsafe.
