Hovercraft Experience and Lunch

On this epic day out your group will experience the ultimate power of the Hovercraft as you launch from Southsea to the Isle of Wight.  During your tour the group will meet the Pilot of the Hovercraft as they demonstrate what the 72 seater craft is capable of.  A commentary is provided on board as you pass various Forts in the sea and as this will be a private charter experience the Hovercraft will deflate and inflate whilst you are on the sea. 

Once you arrive in Ryde, on the Isle of Wight, a two course lunch with coffee and mints will be waiting for you.  While away the rest of the time either on the beautiful beach of Ryde or in the independent shops in this beautiful town.  Your return journey will take you back to Southsea within 10 minutes on the Hovercraft back to the mainland where you can meet your coach. 

Why not extend your stay on the Isle of Wight for a night or so?  Talk to our team who can organise this for you.
