Please tell us a bit about Hen Party Brighton.

Hen Party Brighton offers a range of exciting and different day time activities for hen groups in Brighton.

What was the inspiration behind starting a hen party appeal to Lagoon Watersports?

It was started by hens themselves contacting us and asking about activities for their hen parties. So it made sense to look at what we could offer in more details and come up with some tailor-made packages for hen groups.

What are some of the services you can offer to hen parties?

We offer a range of fun water based activities. Everything from a coastal adventure such as a classy yacht sailing trip or a high speed powerboat blast along the Brighton coast line too adventure on Hove Lagoon such as Stand up paddle boarding, raft building and racing or the thrill of Wakeboarding.

Most events can feature an element of competition which adds to the fun and can be rounded off with a BBQ.

We make sure all activities are suitable for complete beginners and provide all tuition and specialised equipment, we have hair dryers !

How is Lagoon Watersports different from its competitors?

We have two great locations each less than 3 miles from the centre of Brighton right on the sea front offer a wide range of options for events. We have over years experience and are proud to have be voted Brighton and Hove leading leisure and Tourism business in 2016. We have really professional, friendly and well qualified staff and we are the only watersports venue in the are that is inspected by the RYA, BWSW, AALA and LoTC.

Tell us a bit about the yacht experience you offer for hen parties.

The yacht sailing trip is a great classy way to spend an an afternoon or evening out on the water getting a unique view of Brighton from the sea. It is something really special and unique that can be a feature of your hen party weekend. You can be a active sailor taking the helm and working the sails or you can sit back and enjoy the ride. Our professional skipper will make sure you have a great time aboard and the trip ends with some cava aboard.

How are staff involved with hen party activities?

All our staff are qualified watersports instructors and they will make sure you have a great time, learn and are safe. They will lead the session coaching you, making sure the session is fun , arrange competition and getting involved with fun too.

Do you have any plans to branch out and appeal to further niche groups?

The success of hen parties has lead us to offer activities for stag groups as well.

How important has your online web presence been to the overall success of Lagoon Watersports?

Most people research planning their event research before hand online so our presence online is very important. We try combining keeping our web site simple, mobile friendly.

What has been the biggest challenge in taking activities you routinely offer and making them appeal to hen party groups?

To be honest it has been pretty simple. The activities we offer are great fun and suitable for groups. Hen groups started coming to us before we really started specifically offering hen group activities so they liked what we had. We tend to just add a bit more fun into things and often an element of competition as this helps bring everyone in the group together,. Oh and some cava at the end always goes down well!

What is the next big goal on the horizon for Lagoon Watersports?

Continuing to have lots of fun on the water and sharing that joy with as many people as possible.
