As soon as we had been guided to our parking bay on St Faith we left our car to explore the ferry. The exit from Portsmouth Harbour on a sunny day doesn’t get any better with fantastic views of The Spinnaker Tower at Gunwharf Quays.
My favourite spot has to be the sundeck to glimpse the gin palaces and yachts circling The Solent and the magnificent forts….reminding me I need to get to Spitbank Fort sometime soonish.
If weather puts you off the sundeck try finding a seat near the floor to ceiling windows and watch the scenery change from the Camber Docks to the edges of Gosport and Southsea and beyond. Watch the sea change colour, dip and swell and slow as you arrive at Fishbourne to a gentle stop and a easeful docking ready for the Isle of Wight adventure.
Takes about three quarters of an hour and refreshments are available on board.
