  • Used Urban Truant for iow festival 2018. Absolutely brilliant service, easy check in and relax with a beer while you wait for the RIB. Return Journey was exactly the same, check in and then get some breakfast while you wait. Organisation was spot on and the RIB crossing just added to the whole experience. Won't hesitate to book again, no queues and delivered pretty much to the door. Thanks Urban Truant.

  • Hey Russ,

    Me and my mate had a sick time with you guys. Getting there and back was a massive highlight. Not only the most fun, but also the fastest, easiest, and cheapest way by far! Couldn't have picked a better option.

    We won't be taking the ferry any time soon.
