Cowes Ferry Port Information

A short Hi-speed ferry service operates ferry sailings across the Solent from Cowes to Southampton. Cowes on the Isle of Wight is centrally located off the south coast of England. Although it is home to a wide range of boating services and facilities for all types of craft, it is also a charming town with a lot to offer land lubbers. It has a wide choice of restaurants and pubs that make any stopover enjoyable.

West Cowes and East Cowes share the two parts of the port of Cowes. Situated either side of the River Medina, they are linked by the "floating bridge" which is a car carrying chain ferry operating throughout the day and evening. Free to foot passengers and a small charge for cars and other vehicles.

Cowes is one of the busiest areas in the country for recreational sailing and boating, and hosts a number of racing events famous with sailors around the world as well as cruising rallies every season.

The Cowes Classic which was established in 1961, brings together powerboats and their crews from around the world for five days of highly competitive racing. The major events each year bring thousands of yachts into Cowes with 10,000 or more boating visitors arriving in the town during the largest events.
