There are three main options for you to get to the Isle of Wight Sea Kayak Symposium.

  1. Bring a car with a group of up to four, as it costs no more for four as it does for one in a car. Take a look at www.redfunnel.co.uk or www.wightlink.co.uk You have options of leaving the mainland from Portsmouth, Southampton or Lymington.
  2. Come across from Lymington to Yarmouth as a foot passenger (with your boat on a trolley or just carried on if you wish) and we will pick you up. www.wightlink.co.uk (pre-booking not necessary)
  3. Cross as a foot passenger from Southampton or Portsmouth and get one of the busses that goes via Newport to Freshwater Bay.
  4. Paddle here! Either paddle across to Yarmouth and we can collect you or paddle directly to Freshwater Bay as did some intrepid folks last year.

It’s possible to get some good ferry crossing deals if you try different times, and the different ferry companies.
