“I  have had a brilliant time with you all this season and I wanted to share with the world what a great place you are. Where is the best place for me to let everyone know how great you are.”


“Thank you so much to all the staff that made our activities on Saturday so much fun! Honestly, it was incredible.”


“We were so impressed with Dom’s instruction and the children all had a brilliant time. Nick ensured that everything ran smoothly from start to finish and we were really impressed with the level of organisation that went into providing an excellent session for our children.”

We wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you and the whole Lagoon Watersports Team who were awesome; my team had a really lovely day and everyone participated as much or as little as they wanted which was perfect, the BBQ was great.

    The water quality in Hove Lagoon is independently tested regularly during the summer season as part of the Brighton and Hove City Councils seafront beach water quality testing. Lagoon Watersports opened in 1994 , since that date the water in Hove Lagoon has passed every one.

    • Natural algae growth occurs in the Lagoon. This algae can look unpleasant particularly when it blows to one corner of the Lagoon. It is harmless. It is NOT blue/green algae that fresh water lakes can suffer from.

    • Sometimes there is a smell. This smell is caused by the natural process of the algae.

    • Brighton and Hove City Council treat the water with an organic substance to help suppress the algae growth.

    • The water in the Lagoon is sea water rather than fresh water which prevents some common water quality issues that lakes suffer from.

    • The Lagoon is topped up with fresh seawater every few days.

    • The Lagoon is very shallow so the sun can penetrate to the bottom.

    • There is a high level of evaporation and leakage in the Lagoon.

    • The sea water that goes into the Lagoon meets all bathing test requirements.
