On these dates we will be operating a 2-boat Hi-speed service for Cowes Week, with an alternative timetable for that week.

Due to road closures for pedestrian safety in West Cowes, there will be no access to Fountain Yard between 15:00-03:00 on these days. The Southern Vectis No 1 bus will continue to operate from Carvel Lane, outside M&S.
