Course Image


The Isle of Wight festival is a world-famous festival that take place every year on the picturesque Isle of Wight. Featuring live music, DJ sets and a myriad of diverse entertainment, this is a festival not to be missed.

For the 2017 festival, Stormforce Coaching are offering a unique mode of transport to and from the festival, with direct RIB rides from Southampton. Beat the ferry queues and speed over to the island in style this year.

If you want bespoke timings, quick & easy transfers from major train stations and airports, FREE parking for customers and no queues, then look no further: Stormforce Coaching RIB Rides are your best option for getting to and from the festivals.


If you're lucky enough to be going to the festival, we know how eager you'll be to get the party started. So, rather than waiting in line for the ferry, beat the queues and take a high-speed RIB ride across the Solent in one of our open powerboats (RIB = Rigid Inflatable Boat).

Join us at our base in Shamrock Quay Marina and we'll take you directly to West Cowes where
 you can join the shuttle bus. Shamrock Quay is close to Southampton Airport and Southampton Central Train Station, so getting to us couldn't be easier. If you book with us, we can offer you FREE secure parking for the entire festival period. Tell us the time you want to leave and we'll create a bespoke package for you, meaning we work to your timetable. It couldn't be easier, more convenient or quicker to get to the Isle of Wight in style this year.

Course Duration:

The Isle of Wight festival is on the 8th to the 11th of June 2017, held at Seaclose Park, Newport on the Isle of Wight. We offer to drop you off in West Cowes so you can catch the shuttle bus, or we can drive up the River Medina to Seaclose Park. (Please note that we are constrained by the tides so will be unable to drive to Seaclose Park at certain times of the day).

Stormforce Coaching's RIB Ride transfers will get you from Southampton to the Isle of Wight in 40 minutes. We can also pick you up after the festivals so you can get back to reality (sorry) for an extra fee.
