The Hovercraft to the Isle of Wight
When you are travelling to the Isle of Wight from Portsmouth you can get there in 8 minutes on a Hovercraft. Every 30 minutes this Hovercraft leaves from Southsea Portsmouth. You can't take your car with you, but as a passenger, this is quite an experience. The experience (on a hovercraft you even call it a ‘flight' however that is too unnatural for us to mention on a ferry website) has tons of positive reviews on sites like Tripadvisor and Google.
