The Cowes Floating Bridge carries vehicles, bikes and foot passengers between Cowes & East Cowes 7 days a week, all year round.

The short crossing across the river Medina only takes a few minutes. The service is run from 0500 to 0030 Monday to Saturday, and 0630 to 0030 on Sundays.
The service is operated by the Isle of Wight Council and saves a 11 mile round trip by road.
