Group Powerboat Rides

A high speed thrill ride…hang on tight !

This high speed powerboat ride takes you on a thrilling ride along Brighton’s coast onboard a state-of-the-art RIB (rigid-inflatable boat) with an experienced and qualified driver onboard.

On this Rib Ride you will experience a surge in adrenaline as your boat jumps the waves, performs tight turns and puts on white-knuckle bursts of speed. You will also have the opportunity to soak up great views from Brighton and the Sussex coastline and in the summer you may be lucky enough to spot dolphins in the waters. This is great high speed adventure that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face!

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.

“Thanks for your help in organising the stag weekend, everyone had such a great time and all the instructors were super fun and encouraging (getting everyone up on the wakeboards very quickly which some of the less active guys were really surprised with!). The food was also perfect and with the sun out, the area to chill out made for a really fun avo to kick back.”

Paul Goodey

“The yacht trip it was the most perfect evening and the bride was literally speechless. Your skipper and his mate were absolutely amazing and really made it a fun time. Thank you again so much it will never be forgotten.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Hove Lagoon is an old Victorian boating lake so has a solid bottom and is only waist deep. This means that any time you need to you can stand up. It is also right next to the sea so on those hot sunny days when there is little wind we can usually expect a sea breeze. Being next to the sea when people are ready we can move their learning away from the lagoon and on to the sea itself. The lagoon is in the middle of a public park so not only do you have the beach near by but you also have a kids play area and a skate park so anyone not taking part will have something to do. There is also an onsite licensed cafe for spectators and participants.

No we do not as it is not often that the sea is flat enough. We have 3 System 2.0 cables in shallow and sheltered waters of Hove Lagoon. As it is a 2.0 system it means only one person at a time rides and if they come off the handle comes straight back to them so there is no waiting in the water. For beginners it is perfect as you can hear the instructions, are able to stand up if need be and do not have the challenge of waves. There are also various features in the water like the step up or box to keep advanced riders amused.

Hove Lagoon is only waist deep so what ever activity you are doing they will be able to stand up. If anyone cannot swim just let us know and we will keep an extra eye. Everyone that goes on the water, including instructors, has to wear a buoyancy aid or impact vest. If someone really does not want to take part that is fine. They can be on the side watching and encouraging, maybe offering advice if you are building rafts and they can be the first to the cafe to order the coffees or beers.

It is very unusual for us to cancel due to bad weather. You will be getting wet so rain is not a problem and if you have people coming to watch they can watch from our cafe which looks out over the lagoon.

Hove Lagoon is only waist deep so if you do fall off your board you will be able to stand up and then get back on your board. You will also be wearing a buoyancy aid for added confidence.

We do have lockers that are free to use. If you have larger bags we can store them for you provided they are not huge suitcases!

We have wetsuits in all shapes and sizes to suit everyone. You are very welcome to borrow one of these (no additional charge).

We have provided corporate, group and Hen & Stag events since 1994. We have catered for groups of up to 400 clients and worked with companies such as: Microsoft, IBM,Vodafone, Coca-Cola, Ernst & Young, Garnier, Natwest, Morgan Stanley and News International.
