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 test.

Independent water quality test results from 2017  testing

Total Colibacteria



Faecal Colibacteria



Faecal Enterococci


  • 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.

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.

Postponement by us due to Corona Virus

All bookings made after 23/03/2020 that cannot take place due to Corona Virus will be rescheduled, or a credit will be added to your account for the value of the payment made. The credit is valid for 2 years and can be used for any activities we offer including gift vouchers. No refunds will be given in any circumstances.

Course Cancellation Insurance
You can take out insurance to cover the cost of your course against cancellation though Guest First by calling 0345 90 80 101

Our Advice

  • Consider taking out course cancellation insurance.
  • Your holiday insurance may cover you for course where you stay on our boats.
