You will also have the opportunity to meet the Pilot and the crew and take a tour of this incredible amphibious craft. There is then free time to enjoy Ryde, a traditional seaside destination with long, spacious stretches of sandy beach, a thriving independent shopping scene and fabulous eating out, Ryde is a quirky mix of a traditional seaside fun, Victorian architecture and unexpected hidden gems. After a lovely day in Ryde we once again board the hovercraft for our return journey to Southsea.
