Friendly and helpful people, easy to maneuver kayaks, beautiful scenery. I got back early after doing the whole loop they suggested and I got my money back for the last hour I didn't use. I will recommend to everybody.

We hired a double kayak for ourselves and a stand up paddle board for our teenager. It cost $60. Was a fun hour exploring the beautiful Raglan harbour.

Great people and good gear. Affordably priced too and they are really cruisy. Raglan is brilliant. We had more fun hiring kayaks here for a couple of hours than we did on a full day trip elsewhere (which was also amazing however)
