|Hovertravel operations commenced on 24th July 1965 using an SRN6
hovercraft which carried just 38 passengers, travelling from Stokes Bay
in Gosport, a service which ran for several years until
operations were switched to Portsmouth.
Three modern 98 seat
hovercraft now run between Ryde and Southsea, and more than 18 million
passengers have used our service to date.
