Each year Wightlink transports around 5 million passengers on two routes to the Isle of Wight leaving from Portsmouth and Lymington making them one of the UK's largest domestic ferry operators.
The 40 minute crossing from Portsmouth affords the opportunity to study the coastal defences and harbour, whilst the slightly shorter crossing from Lymington passes through salt marshes and other natural resources - both ideal study topics as depicted in the available resources.
