What people are saying about Raglan

Cruise was very nice, sunset was astounding. Fish and chips it would help if GetYourGuide mentioned that to add the meal for $15 you have to order 2 hours ahead of time…it wasn’t stated on listing so we ended up not being able to eat dinner, then scrambling through Raglan afterwards looking for an open kitchen. The cruise operators and personnel were all friendly and informative, the cruise was great for families and scenic views. A fun evening out on the water for a relaxing activity.

We had an enjoyable trip on Sunday on the Wahinemoe, around the Raglan Harbour. The weather was lovely, the commentary by the Captain was really informative and interesting and the staff were very helpful. We had fish and chips at the wharf before boarding and they were delicious. Would recommend this cruise to anyone visiting Raglan

The surfing guide was so lovely which made me relax and enjoy the experience. I’m definitely doing it again
