Most Islanders call the Cowes Chain Ferry the “Floating Bridge” and for good reason. It provides a vital foot passenger and vehicle link across the River Medina between Cowes and East Cowes with an excellent regular service all year round.

The Chain Ferry operates in both directions from 0500 onwards on Mondays to Saturdays and from 0635 onwards on Sundays.

There are regular crossings at approximately 10-15 minute intervals from each side of the River Medina which continue until 0030.
