Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The experience is amazing and it is fun. It does need to have courage for someone who can not swim and no prior paddling experience like me. I strongly recommended.

We had a great afternoon kayaking around the pancake islands in Raglan. The booking was easy to make and the staff were very helpful and informative - telling us where to go, and giving us kayaking instructions. Highly Recommend.

I loved it. I went with my Aunt who was visiting from Australia and we had the best time! The instructor was so nice and made sure we were always okay. Along with the fun of being in the water and going for a swim in the beautiful New Zealand ocean, we got to learn about the history of the area and the creation of the limestones. It's a great way to spend a day and anyone visiting Raglan or North Island should take some time out to kayak with these guys.

I was a little apprehensive having not kayak'd previously, but the team were fantastic and quickly allayed my fears. We took the guided tour. The team interacted really well with all the family in a fun and totally appropriate way. They were knowledgeable and we learned lots. It was such a fun way to spend the afternoon. I would highly recommend and would definitely do it again!

Owners were super chilled and awesome to deal with, told us it would be a better experience to do it later in the day on the correct tide ( didn't just let us pay and that the money )

Awesome day on the water, even helped take a few photos and had a good chat about the township of Raglan.

Great team, Great business, would recommend to others 100%

A great kayak tour viewing the limestone caves. Sky was very knowledgeable about the area and was a great guide. The safety checks were professional and through.
Highly recommend.
