A MUST DO first class experience in Raglan/Whaingaroa

It was all wonderful- Captain Barlow and his crew are excellent- we got an informed and interesting talk en route, good fish and chips, bubbles and a beautiful sunset! Best of all we sat on a comfy blanket on the front of the boat - just brilliant!

‚ÄčThe new year's eve cruise with Raglan Boat Charter was excellent.

The crew and staff were bloody amazing and super friendly. They took excellent care of everyone. The ages of us on board ranged from 20 to 70 and we all had a great night. The inclusive drink and food was awesome too. Thanks for helping up make it memorable , would highly recommend and will be back.

We had an amazing time
on the Wahine Moe.

The crew were friendly and helpful. The captain was so funny and I loved his stories. He was so good with our kids aged 10 & 8. The fish and chips were so delicious. We would definitely recommend.
