Late Night Ferry Crossings Reinstated As East Cowes Terminal Work Completed Ahead Of Schedule

Red Funnel has announced that it will reinstate night-time crossings which were previously removed to accommodate works taking place at its East Cowes Ferry Terminal and ensure the safety of underwater dive teams.

Effective from Saturday (March 2), the following previously removed vehicle ferry crossing times will be reinstated on Red Funnel’s current timetable:

  • Departing Southampton: 23:55 – (Saturday to Tuesday)
  • Departing Southampton: 03:00 – (Monday to Wednesday)
  • Departing East Cowes: 01:30 – (Sunday to Wednesday)

The change comes about as the repair and upgrade work to the Red Funnel’s mooring dolphins has progressed ahead of scheduled plans, which originally anticipated timetable adjustments through to 20 March. 

Contractors will remain on site in East Cowes until Sunday, 3 March to complete final elements of the project works, however, this activity can take place without an impact to service.

Any customers who would find it more convenient to travel on one of the reinstated crossings are invited to get in touch with Red Funnel’s Contact Centre team at 023 8001 9192.

The team will assist with adjusting bookings without any amendment fees.
