          What time do you need to be there for the boat to get across to the fort if you do an overnight stay (thinking hen package).

          We had to be there at 11am to check in and boat left at 11.30am but timings may vary. Best check directly with Solent Forts to avoid disappointment.

          Boat moors next to fort, step off and onto steps. We did it in rough water, a bit scary but worth it.
