Minimum Temp for Swimming is 11ºC*
*In the spring we wait until the water is holding at least 14ºC overnight to ensure it remains above the minimum temperature for swimming.
Wetsuits are mandatory when the water temperature is below 18ºc. Above 18ºc wetsuits are optional but non wetsuit swimmers must used an approved Tow Float. The Blue Lagooners Management reserve the right to request to test the suitability of a swimmers wetsuit or tow float for buoyancy, & suitability for swimming and reserve the right to refuse access to the water if a swimmers wetsuit or tow float is deemed unsuitable and/or unsafe for swimming. Please check out the videos above that explain why this is so important.
