The Hamble-Warsash Ferry is a ferry service on the River Hamble in Hampshire. The ferry operates between Hamble-le-Rice on the west bank of the river and Warsash on the east. The current service is the latest incarnation of a service that has operated for over a thousand years. It was an important link on the route between the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton. It was also a key link in more than one pilgrimage route. The ferry now provides a link in local, national and international footpaths such as the Solent Way and cycle routes such as National Cycle Route 2.
The Hamble-Warsash Ferry service operates on the River Hamble running between Hamble foreshore and Warsash (Summer 9am - 6pm, Winter 9am - 4pm. Times change at the beginning and end of BST). The ferry operates on demand and can carry a maximum of 12 passengers at once. However, to meet with demand during busy periods, two ferries operate.
All vessels and even the ferry shelter are painted a very bright 'Barbie' pink which whilst a little controversial, has been very valuable in increasing the company's exposure. It probably also helps ensuring visibility when crossing the main river channel during busy periods.

A River Taxi service also covers the whole of the River Hamble, carrying up to 12 passengers (plus luggage). In 2012 this is no longer operated by the Hamble-Warsash Ferry and the vessel used is now painted yellow. The taxi can be contacted via Mobile 07827 157155 or VHF 77 "Hamble Taxi". The on demand ferry service and river taxi operates 0900 to 1800 in summer and to 2100 at weekends in June, July and August. Winter hours 0900 to 1600.
