The Hayling Ferry
In August 2015, Baker Trayte purchased the Pride of Hayling ferry with the intention of reinstating the Ferry service from Ferry Point on Hayling Island to Eastney Point on the Portsmouth side.
The new Hayling Ferry service was launched on 5th August 2016 -with guests of honour, Wayne Sleep O.B.E, and Mayor of Havant, Faith Ponsonby carrying out the ceremonial duties. A massive crowd showed their support and enthusiasm for the return of the service.
On 5th August 2023 the Hayling Ferry celebrated 7 years in service.
The Hayling Ferry runs Summer, Spring and Winter Timetables and extends its timetable as required to support special events in Portsmouth and Hayling Island.
The Pride of Hayling ferry is operated by qualified experienced skippers and crew, and is fully licensed by the MCA to carry 63 passengers. Baker Trayte Marine look forward to welcoming you onboard the Hayling Ferry in the near future.
