Brighton Powerboat Rides

Brighton Powerboat Rides

Our thrilling high speed powerboat ride takes you along the Brighton coastline. On this high speed ride you will be in safe hands with our experienced and qualified instructors. This is a must do activity from Brighton, giving you the chance to see the city skyline whilst enjoying the ride!

What to Expect

First you will meet your skipper at Brighton Marina and receive a safety briefing. With your qualified instructor at the helm, you will then set off, passing through the marina. Once out of the marina you will hit the open sea, holding on tight as your skipper pulls back the throttle and accelerates at speed! You will then feel the adrenalin rush as your powerboat performs super-fast turns, figures of eights and jumps the waves – these machines can reach speeds of up 65km/h! In between the turns and high speed you will have the chance to relax, admire the views and if you wish, take a swim in the sea. After a last exhilarating burst of speed you will cruise back to the marina, where your adventure ends.

  • 30 minute high-speed RIB (rigid inflatable boat) ride along the coastline off Brighton

Changing Bookings

When you make a booking with us we assign staff and equipment to deliver the booking. That means we are unable to offer that space to anyone else.

If you cancel that space we are likely to incur a loss.  We will have already made commitments to staff and we may have turned away other bookings. We are unable to get insurance that covers us for this loss.

We therefore do not offer refunds for cancellations. If we did not do this we would have to put up our prices for everyone.

Our cancellation policy applies in all circumstances including no shows, illness, relocation, transport failure and bereavement.

Course Cancellation Insurance
You can take out insurance to cover the cost of your course against cancellation through CancelSure. Guide cost is £12 for the first £100 of cover and then £6 per additional £100 of cover.

Our Advice

  • If you pay by credit card your cancellation may be covered by your credit card provider.
  • Consider taking out course cancellation insurance.
