  • Going to the festival on the Friday was brilliant! Easy to find, very exhilarating. What a great way to start the weekend. I would definitely use the same service again if it was an option. Great value for money and great fun.

    Danni Jacobs IOW Festival 2011

  • With glorious weather the trip to the festival was the best possible start to the weekend! On the way home I apologetically left my friends in the rather depressing coach the time I reached Hamble Marina any feelings of guilt had blown away!! A great crew and quality service - this really was the most fun I have ever had in transit!

    Holly Thompson - Bestival 2012

  • Hello
    Speedboat was excellent, makes the beginning of the festival so much more exciting! Have used you for the last two years and will see you again next year!
