The Isle of Wight ferry service needs essential change. That’s why we’re championing a fairer and more flexible ferry service that actually serves the Island community. We’re on a dedicated mission to stop the continuing ferry service cuts and price rises.

We want the Island Community to control to a greater degree the lifeline transport links to and from the mainland and around the Island. Our goal is to keep Island residents up to date on ferry service issues, so that as a community we are better informed on changes that affect us all. Find out more.

Public support is vital to the campaign’s success. You really can help us create change and make a lasting difference for future generations.

Every voice counts so please help spread this campaign. It’s as easy as a few clicks.

Comment from David Vango

We have just arrived on the island and find the cost of return trips to the main land very expensive Surely the ferry companies could offer Isle of Wight residents cheaper fares I contacted Red Funnel and was informed that they are doing the very best they can holding prices down Now I I have seen the latest profit figures this is obviously incorrect

Comment from Keith Towers

My wife and I have been residents for 37 years and have steadily watched the destruction of this beautiful Island's tourist industry in part due to the oppressive charges made by the Ferry companies. Wightlink are the worst providers. Why we need almost ocean going luxury style ferries to make a 35 minute crossing is beyond me. We need a much simpler and certainly a much cheaper way of getting to the mainland and back to see relatives and grandchildren. The charges are outrageous and have compromised the movement of Islanders. I can no longer justify taking my car over to the mainland because as a pensioner the fares are beyond what is affordable. Time for a tunnel; time for the Government to step in; time for this Island life-line to be taken out of the private sector. This disgusting practice of making a profit out of this monopoly has to be brought to an end. So come on Mr. Cameron, AND MR. TURNER, move your bloomin' ar*es and start screaming!
