Red Funnel, Isle of Wight Ferries



To accommodate Saints FC fans travelling back from the Southampton vs Liverpool game, we'll be making some small adjustments to our Red Jet evening timetable.

Our late evening sailings on 17 May will depart as follows:

Southampton to West Cowes: 22:20 (usually 22:00)
West Cowes to Southampton: 22:55 (usually 22:35)
Southampton to West Cowes: 23:30 (usually 23:10)
West Cowes to Southampton: 00:05 (usually 23:45)
Please arrive as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Sailings from Southampton can get extremely busy after Saints FC fixtures, and our maximum capacity limits the number of passengers we can carry on each trip.
If you are unable to make the last Red Jet sailing, there is a 23:55 Vehicle Ferry sailing from Southampton to East Cowes.
