Getting to the Isle of Wight is part of the holiday!
It is possible to fly by private aircraft to the Isle of Wight, with airport facilities available at Bembridge (http://eghj.co.uk/) and Sandown (http://www.eghn.org.uk/) – please visit their websites for further details.
Of course most of us prefer to take the ferry...
The Isle of Wight Ferry is historically one of the Island’s most famous features with the first recorded service dating back to 1420. With no fixed link to the Isle of Wight the most regular mode of transport to and from the Island is by boat or hovercraft.

The best routes for our house are:
Wightlink Portsmouth - Fishbourne car ferry. The Fishbourne terminal is about a 15-20 minute drive from us.
Wightlink Fastcat foot ferry goes from Portsmouth to the end of Ryde pier where you can either walk the length of the Victorian pier or take the 1930s underground train from Ryde pier head one or two stops to save your legs, we're about a 10 minute walk from both the Esplanade stop and the St John's stop though the walk up from the esplanade would be my choice everytime.
Red Funnel Southampton - Cowes. Takes about 15 minutes longer than the Portsmouth crossing but serves hot food if you want to make a meal of it, Cowes terminal is about 25 minute drive from our house.
