  • "trip from Portsmouth to Fishbourne"

    We booked this on line with Direct ferries. For both outward and return sailings we got to the terminal earlier than anticipated but were allowed on earlier sailings which was great. Onbiously this depends on how full each sailing is. Friendly efficient service

  • "All worked perfect;ly"

    This is a very pleasant route with easy and convenient parking, helpful staff and plenty of seating on the ship. Just time for a coffee before you arrive, and buses are a few yards away at Yarmouth.
