Off to Cowes Week this year? Scoot Ferries launches new service between Trinity Landing in Cowes and Hamble Town Quay for the duration of Cowes Week 2015
New Cowes Week ferry service
Scoot Ferries is giving the Red Jet and Wight Link a run for its money this year as it opens a new foot passenger ferry service between Hamble and Cowes. From Sunday 7 August to Sunday 16 August, Scoot’s cat will power between the south side of Trinity Landing, off Cowes Parade, across the Solent to Hamble Town Quay in under 30 minutes. A single costs £15 and a return £25 and booking is recommended, on www.scootferries.co.uk
The first service leaves Cowes at 0530, then Hamble at 0600, and this continues every half-hour until the last ferry, which leaves Hamble at 0200.
Scoot has big plans too. It’s opening a service between Yarmouth and Lymington in September 2015, a full-time Hamble-Cowes service in May 2016 and a new Portsmouth to Cowes link on October 2016. It’s likely that, by that time, Scoot’s ferries might have a touch of branding about them.
