Just back from a fab trip with Solent & Wightline Cruises to see the final day's racing of The America's Cup on the Solent. Left on time on a clean and tidy boat with a very friendly and humourous crew with excellent commentary on the trip and racing. Good position to view the three races. Cruise included a packed lunch... More

My first trip on this small ferry company and I must say it was very pleasant and will definitely be using it again. Staff were courteous & helpful, value for money had by my ticket price for a return ticket and spent an enjoyable day in gunwharf quays & the spinnaker tower.

We travelled with Solent and Wightline Cruises on 29 November 2015 in very bad weather. Throughout the journey the staff were on hand to reassure customers, although this was not required due to the excellent skills of the Captain. The staff were extremely friendly. We had purchased tickets through The Price is Wight which offered an unbelievable price to cross... More

Went on an organised trip around the solent seeing the naval base in Portsmouth and their visiting warships. Had a lovely sunny day which made the trip very pleasurable. Captain was well informed and commentated throughout pointing out focal points of the journey. Well recommended.

Like footiefan we travellled on a trip arranged by Parrys International. Warmest day of 2015 so far. Picked up by Paul of Solent Blue who was very funny and informative. The cruise was excellent. Really good to see the dockyard where so many of our family were stationed. Really good commentary too. Good value!

On a sunny November day we jumped aboard for an hour long trip to see the harbour and its resident warships tied up in place full of the history of Great Britain and from where it projected itself across the world. The vessel was in good order and perfect for the nature of the trip. The subject matter of Portsmouth... More

The skipper of the small Jenny m boat gave a great commentary factual and he added some humour in and got the public on board laughing. Later we took a harbour tour on the solent cat,... More

We booked to go on boat trip on Tuesday morning, 26 August around Portsmouth harbour/docks. I was so impressed with the commentary which was delivered concisely and in such an informative and interesting way. I would have liked to congratulate the man who delivered it but unfortunately had to race off. I have been on quite a number of different... More
