Red Funnel was formed in 1861 and is a modern and highly successful transport company based in the UK City of Southampton. Group activities include cross-Solent ferries, UK holidays, distribution and freight services

At Red Funnel Ferries, we strive to offer guests an unrivalled travel experience. We operate a year-round ferry service between Southampton and the Isle of Wight, UK. With a modern fleet of passenger and vehicle ferries, we pride ourselves in being an essential connection and gateway to the mainland, having been operating since 1861. Each year, we carry 3.5 million passengers travelling for business, family getaways or islanders returning home.

Island life is central to all we do. Beyond providing a high quality service on board, which includes high capacity Wi-Fi on all our fleet, great food and excellent service, we actively strive to make the Isle of Wight a first choice holiday destination. Working with our partners on the island, we also arrange holiday accommodation and book activity packages, usually at a travel discount, for passengers.

We also have our own dedicated team of freight and ferry specialists based on the Island, so are able to help you with your freight and ferry requirements to and from the Island.

Red Funnel is committed to supporting the interests of its customers, suppliers, partners and stakeholders as well as the wider communities living in the areas it serves. This year our nominated charity is Ability Dogs for Young People, plus we also support The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Foundation (HIWCF) and the Earl Mountbatten Hospice

We are always looking to grow our team, so if you are someone who is passionate about customer service, lives our values and would thrive in a job a little outside the norm, then please do visit our website.
