Sailing Boat Trips Brighton

Sailing Trips from Brighton

Lagoon Watersports offers exciting sailing trips from Brighton Marina. You can choose a “Half Day Cruise”, “2 hour sailing experience”or a “Sunset Cruise”, all of which will give you a fantastic experience onboard our yacht.

From the big blue, whether you are taking in the skyline of Brighton or sights along the Sussex coastline, such as the Seven Sisters and Beachy Head, sit back and relax and enjoy the sail. You will also be given the chance to hoist the sails or take the helm, in the safe hands of our experienced skippers. Weather permitting you may be able to take a dip and don’t forget to look out for the dolphins! This is a must do, therapeutic experience, not to be missed!

 

 

The Venue

Brighton Marina is just a few minutes away from the heart of Brighton which offers some of the best nightlife, shops and entertainment in the UK. So why not take a trip out to sea where you will be able to take in the beautiful views of the coastline in style! The Marina itself is packed with bars and restaurants, a cinema and even a casino – all within a few paces from the boat, so there’s plenty to do before and after your trip.

Please Note: The sailing itinerary is subject to change depending on the wind conditions.

We had a fantastic 2-hour sailing cruise on a beautiful sunny day, although the wind was very disappointing! Great staff and boat. Highly recommended.

Alyson Becht

I used Lagoon to take a friend and I out for a couple of hours sailing.
We found them very friendly and helpful throughout our time.
They were very professional and gave us good advice about subsequent courses.
I would definitely recommend them for either a fun day out sailing or if you are thinking of taking up sailing.

We had an absolutely fabulous day sailing on 26ft sigma and Could not recommend it enough. Amy and Martin were brilliant! helpful, friendly and fun and encouraged us to be hands on or we could just relax. Pure bliss didn't want it to end.

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