Nice! I'm guessing boat trips will be operating the same as last year?
Be nice to get on board for once but don't suppose theres a much of chance of that...?

Usually there’s no info about boat trips, until the carrier visit is officially announced.

Last year we had a great trip out using these people from the Gosport terminal. https://www.gosportferry.co.uk/summer-cruises/

And they also run them from Gunwarf Quays near the bottom of the Spinnaker tower.

But like Offbreed says, nothing will be announced until nearer the weekend...Just get in early whoever you use.!! Have fun.

Presume these are just circuit tours ? Official reply from US Embassy says this is a 'working visit', so there may not be any opportunities to board.

Yes indeed. If they follow the same procedure as last year they take you once round clockwise then once round anti clockwise. Close enough to get decent photos of the aircraft positioned around the edge but nothing in the centre of the deck as it were.
You have to be really 'special' to get on board so for us mere mortals there's not a lot of chance I'm afraid.. :cuppa:

Yep just go round on the water, from my experience Gosport ferries are very good used them for QE home coming and they were excellent.
