Speed across the Solent
Our Red Jet Hi-Speed service is the fastest way for foot passengers to cross the Solent from Southampton to the Isle of Wight.
This fast catamaran is ideal for business and leisure trips to Cowes and the Isle of Wight, with crossing times from just 28 minutes. Regular departures sail from our West Cowes, Isle of Wight and T2, Southampton terminals throughout the day.
Please note: we are currently upgrading the toilet facilities at Southampton Terminal 2. Whilst these works are carried out, there are temporary toilets available for our customers adjacent to the ticket office, and we apologise in advance for any noise and disruption.
Red Jet Fares & Tickets
Most ticket types for Red Jet can now be purchased in advance online. They can also be bought from our ticket office and ticket machines in both terminals, where you can also pickup our off-peak, super off-peak and group rate tickets. You can also download our new app to book foot passenger tickets.
