It’s never working and a nuisance. IOW council need to be sacked the lot of them!!! This is bad for the island and how much more pain do the people need to tolerate, Happy to give out parking tickets I noticed!!

We found this a very easy way to travel from West to East Cowes or vice versa. Unfortunately we chose to travel just as the school children were leaving school to return home and so we were a little uneasy as social distancing and face masks do not seem to be terms understood by them. So if possible avoid the school run times.

Regular crossings. Cheap and an absolute time saver! Getting from East to West Cowes can take a long time - this made it so much quicker.

what a fun easy way to get across the river from Cowes to East Cowes and our visit to Osborne House. Looking at the pictures and previous reviews it seems we didn't experience the usual service but were on small boats that crossed the river. For a £1.50 return this was an easy way to cross the river and all the staff were really good and had good banter.

Having checked the price in the morning on the IOW council website [link removed] I thought we'd do a clockwise tour from Newport, only to be thwarted in West Cowes when we ran out of road (and that's having passed at least one road sign in the town saying 'East Cowes this way'...). I now learn there have been problems since early July and there is currently only a small foot ferry in lieu, but why oh why aren't there clear banners across relevant websites saying that the vehicle ferry isn't running? I'd also expect signage in nearby streets to this effect, especially as it's local authority run as part of the road network. We used lots of very efficient cable ferries on holiday last year in Nova Scotia, so why can't we Brits operate one across the River Medina in Cowes? It spoilt our day out, so in view of the inadequate publicity 1* is the best I can muster (I think my first ever, so hope it helps you!).
