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.

    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.

    What a fantastic experience. Awesome adventure with our great guide, Julia. She was very knowledgeable, had great pronunciation, we definitely felt in safe hands. Raglan Rock was an awesome company, from the bookings, communication and friendliness.
    The canyoning was such a heart racing experience, a very good challenge. Enjoyed every minute of it.

    This is the fourth time we’ve put the kids through the Raglan Surfing School. Every time they’ve had such a great time. Knowledgable and patient instructors. Rock remembered my daughter from previous lessons and knew she was not a beginner so gave her a good board to learn tricks on and let her carry on for 20 minutes after the lesson finished. Such a great crew. Thanks again team.

    We took 3 days of surfing and we learned the basics. However more practice is required. Safe surfing is a big priority for Steve. He has a good approach and unique teaching style.

    We are so very grateful for our amazing experience we all had paddle boarding. We were a group of 45 year 7 & 8 students along with parent helpers. Justine and Keith were extremely helpful right from my first enquiry to them until we finished our paddle boarding session. We had so many children who had never paddle boarded before, and every child loved it!!!! Nothing was too much trouble. We can't thank you enough for the experience you gave to all our children.

    I had a great time over the three day course. I loved learning the tips and having constant feedback and reassurance! Thanks for all your support direction, you’ve helped break surfing down into a really approachable activity and (hopefully) a life-long source of joy!
    Andrew gave us theoretical lessons and was attentively giving us all individual practical feedback to get us to the next level, so we all progressed fast within 3 days.
    Andrew took some amazing videos and photos of us all and found a great spot in the water away from other groups.
    Andrew also gave tips on where to surf elsewhere, and feedback on the board and wetsuits I wanted to buy afterwards!
    Great experience and made some buddies along the way!

    It's very helpful to have a car to get to the beach - unless you can get a ride - otherwise, it's a hike from the main city!

    Suitable for all levels, fun activity to do. Really cool how a guide comes out with you and you go up the lagoon rather than just paddling around.

    Nice place to go for lunch and a stroll along the wharf, looking in the pottery shop and leather shop. If you are a fisherman this is a great place to chuck a line in.

    If there was a rating more than 5, they would deserve it. New Zealand is a magical place. It is a given you will be awed. But unforeseen things (especially the weather) can happen. Such did for my long-awaited-carefully-planned trip. And Mara was amazing. She was in contact with me the entire time, went over and beyond to help us adjust our plans to STILL have an amazing vacation. I can't thank them enough and there are no ratings high enough to give them. New Zealand is magical and the people are kind, and then there are exceptional people within all that. Thank you!

    Over for the weekend and dropped in to have a look at the store , had a chat then when out on the water one of the team needed to be rescued !!! Ozone were there and dragged him to safety..... good work , so later in the day dropped in for a drink and had a couple of Zephyr cocktails which I would highly recommend esp for zephyr owners - it will put hairs on your chest and ensure a long sleep and a slow Sunday. Eggs Bene good but have to say some of the staff looked like they had had a few too many on Sat night .... a bit slower than us.

    We scored a voucher from a discount website for a beginners lesson with Keith. He made the lesson SO easy. After a 5 minute dry land introduction we were out in the harbour, enjoying the perfect conditions and relaxing into the boarding. With Keith's relaxed instruction, it all seemed effortless, even with my high centre of gravity.

    Really enjoyable, we would wholeheartedly recommend!

    I cannot recommend Raglan Fishing Charters enough. Seriously!! I'm a 51 year old woman who has never fished for snapper before in my life ... so I went out on the boat for the afternoon knowing nothing with a bunch of people who had all fished before and every one of the crew members onboard were super helpful and super friendly and taught me everything I needed to know .. they even bated my line for me so I didn't have to touch the stinky bait ... lol. They took us to the best fishing spot in Raglan and from the minute we dropped anchor everybody caught non-stop snapper and the odd Kahawai and Gurnard until we left. In fact, we left for home early because we had more than enough fish for everybody to take home. It was action packed fishing the whole time and some of the snapper we caught were HUGE!!! I caught about 10 fish and I can't wait to go back again soon, thanks to Darron and the crew at Raglan Fishing Charters. What a great bunch of guys.
