The hi-tech Red Jets only carry passengers and service several routes: Southampton-West Cowes, Southampton-Gosport and East Cowes-West Cowes. It is important to note that crossings on the Red Jets are non-bookable (i.e. passengers simply show up and go).

The Southampton-West Cowes crossing takes just 22 minutes and departs from Southampton Terminal Two, an amazing 34 times a day, almost one every 30 minutes. There are slightly fewer sailings on Saturday and Sunday. The East Cowes-West Cowes crossing is serviced four times daily, Monday through Friday. The journey time is just 5 minutes.
