Fun for Kids
Lots of Fun for Kids
At Red Funnel Ferries, we'd like to make the ferry journey to the Isle of Wight as much fun as possible for kids, whilst at the same time being relaxing and effortless for parents.
We have lots of things to keep the kids entertained, including downloadable colouring-in sheets which can be found on this page, kid's meals, visits to the bridge (subject to availability & approval), and children's entertainment during selected weekend and school holiday sailings.

The North Lounge aboard Red Falcon and Red Osprey are fitted with large 46" touch screen.
Our entire fleet is fitted with free high speed internet access to keep your teenagers happy!
From face painters to magicians, from storytellers to musicians you'll often find entertainment on-board for kids during the school holidays.
On our vehicle ferries we can also occasionally offer bridge visits - please ask on-board at the Ships Stores for availability.
If you're lucky, you may bump in to our mascot Ted Funnel. You can follow Ted's adventures on his Facebook page.
Current Kids' Menu
On all Red Funnel car ferries, we offer a range of kid's meals in our onboard cafe/restaurant ReFuel. The menus vary but always on offer are a variety of kids' favourites.
Ship's Bridge Visits
Visits to the Bridge offer an exciting opportunity for kids to meet the Captain and to see how the boat is controlled.
Bridge visit availability is limited and is subject to the Captain's approval based on safety and weather factors. Visits will be available on a first-come first-served basis and can be requested once onboard the vessel.
