Join us for a unique Hovercraft VIP Experience day with Hovertravel – the fastest service between Southsea and the Isle of Wight. This special trip will include a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the world’s longest operational hovercraft service. A chance to meet the Pilots & Crew who literally ‘fly’ across the Solent. You will have an opportunity to learn how these wonderful machines work and experience them first hand as we provide you with an exclusive ‘Johnson’s’ Hover Demo before we glide across the waves to Ryde on the Isle of Wight. Free time ashore to explore the Island’s largest town with its well-established shops, golden sands and traditional amusements. There is also a chance to explore Southsea with its delightful Victorian seafront promenade, Clarence Pier and the vast open spaces of Castle Common.
