  • This service was fantastic!! Felt like I was in a James Bond film! So much easier than the ferry and coach transfer I used the previous year, no queue which is very welcome when carrying so much stuff. The crossing is lots of fun as well, slightly wet on the return journey but equally as thrilling, I've recommended the service to all of my friends for next years excursion, and would recommend it to anyone else!

    Thank you very much for the friendly and reliable service, once I've secured a ticket for next years festival, booking the RIB will be next on my to do list :)

    Best Wishes

  • A highlight of the festival weekend
    And top value all as well

  • 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 queue....by 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!

  • Hi Russell,

    After the mudfest that was IOW 2012 there is no way I'd travel to the festival any other way! We arrived from Glasgow a good 2 hours early and got fitted on an earlier boat by the lovely lady that met us in the cafe. What an experience, added so much to the whole weekend. Most defiantly see you next year.
