Wightlink Port & Service UPDATED

UPDATE 18/05/17

Wightlink car ferries to and from Fishbourne will use Portsmouth International Port (Cruise and Cross Channel Ferry Terminal) on the 24th May. This will allow our contractors to carry out work at Portsmouth car ferry terminal. As crossing times will be longer, we have drawn up a revised timetable for these days.

In addition, please note:

  • No stand-by traffic will be accepted at PIP
  • Dangerous goods cannot be shipped during these days

Here are the full details provided by Wightlink:

Smoking Policy Change

Tuesday 18th April : Wightlink ferries become smoke-free.
