This map is based on the vessels Automatic Identification System (AIS) and is an automatic tracking system used on ships. AIS transceivers automatically broadcast information, such as their position, speed, and navigational status, at regular intervals via a VHF transmitter built into the transceiver. The signals are received by AIS transceivers fitted on other ships or on land based systems, such as VTS systems.

SCHEDULED TIMETABLE CHANGES
Due to maintenance and events, we sometimes have to stop or extend our service. Please see below a list of scheduled changes to our normal timetable.
The Floating Bridge will be out of service on Thursday 21 March from 12 noon to 5pm to enable Wight Shipyard to undertake trials to inform further improvements to the operation of the vessel. The trials will focus on maintaining a minimum depth water over the vessel’s chains at all states of the tide. A replacement foot passenger launch will be in operation during this period.
