Hoverspeed rules the waves with its superb fleet of seacat and superseacat fast ferries, giving you a journey that is all about speed, style and service. There's no faster sea crossing to France with services from Dover to Calais and from Newhaven to Dieppe. The Company carries around 2.5 million passengers and over 500,000 vehicles across the Channel to Europe each year.

Hoverspeed operates a unique fleet of high-speed catamaran and monohull car ferries. In 2003 Hoverspeed operates a fleet of three Seacat catamarans on the prime Dover - Calais route, crossing in just under one hour with up to 15 daily departures during the peak season.

Hoverspeed is also the only high-speed operator from Newhaven to Dieppe. The Company reinstated this popular direct link to Normandy in April 1999. Hoverspeed will operate a Superseacat monohull high speed ferry with a crossing time of around two hours, with up to three return sailings operating daily in the peak period.
