AboutThe Quickest Way to the Isle of Wight

Urban Truant offer the only 'on demand' water-based taxi service covering the Solent area.

As the official supplier of RIBs (Rigid Inflatable Boats - speed boats!) to the Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival, we run a hassle-free scheduled service to transport you directly to the festival sites.

For the IOW Festival we speed across the Solent and then cruise along the river Medina all the way to Island Harbour where you will be disembark for the short 5 minute walk to Seaclose park, the home of the IOW Festival. NO Queues – NO Hassle – NO Brainer.

  • The boat ride was ridiculously fun, and all the guys at Urban Truant were really friendly and helpful! Loved every minute of it, could not recommend highly enough :)

    Thanks again, and will come to you guys again if we go to Bestival next year.

  • Your Rib transfer service to the IOW festival was fantastic. The service worked really well, it was very civilised to meet in the pub at Hamble and have some lunch and a pint before heading across. It was definitely the best way to travel to the IOW festival and it is the only way I would ever travel to the IOW festival again.
