As the word "Isle" in the name "Isle of Wight" suggests, it's always going to be tad difficult to drive to the Isle of Wight. So if you're looking to get to this area of unsurpassed natural beauty, you're either going to have to invent some form of ridiculous car-boat or catch one of the numerous ferries. But which ferry is for you? Do you want to get a ferry with a flexible schedule or are you looking for the cheapest ferry to the Isle of Wight?
The first port of call for someone is looking to answer either of these questions should be the website of Wightlink, which can be found at http://www.wightlink.co.uk. Wightlink is the only ferry capable of bringing cars to the Isle of White, and it makes over 65,000 of these ferry crossing a year across the Solent. No, that's not a misprint, here really are over sixty-five thousand crossings a year! With that sort of movement you should have no problems finding a ferry to the Isle of White that suits your schedule.

The second route goes from Lymington to Yarmouth and takes 35 minutes. The ferries on both routes leave their respective harbours every half an hour from nine in the morning till late at night.
