The seasonal ferry runs from the public jetty at Itchenor to the hard at Smugglers Lane, Bosham linking the footpaths.

To catch the ferry, walk to the end of the jetty at Itchenor or the hard at Smugglers Lane and the ferry will either be there or returning shortly. Sometimes you may need to wait 15 minutes or so as the ferry also takes mariners to and from their moored vessels.


The ferry also operates as a water taxi to boats on the moorings in the Itchenor reach between Deep End and Birdham. By special arrangement and depending on how busy it is, trips can be made to vessels in the Bosham channel and to Cobnor point.

Yachtsmen call 'Itchenor Ferry' on VHF Channel 8 or telephone 07970 378350.
