Hovercraft on the beach in Southsea, Portsmouth’s seaside resort. The crossing to Ryde, claimed to be the world’s only commercial passenger hovercraft service, takes just 10 minutes. The crossing from Southsea to Ryde connects the third most populous island in the British Isles, Portsea Island, with the fourth most populous, the Isle of Wight.
