All About the Good Times
Raglan Kayak & Paddleboard
R aglan’s little village has been officially discovered.
Streets are packed with people and it’s amazing to realise that every visitor is actually coming over wanting the same thing: to have a good time!
Making it here is a great achievement but making the most of it is the ultimate goal!
Keeping the happy vibe is important for the bigger picture of our village, and Raglan Kayak & Paddleboard’s owner-operator Stephen Reid is all about sharing the fun.
“I love helping people create happy memories and enjoy quality time with friends and family. Every summer has a story and we remember them.
“For me, exploring the limestone coast and its awesome pancake rock formations or paddling to the café for good food with my people is the perfect way to achieve that!
“We’ve been operating since 2003 and providing good times is what our business is all about! People always come back from their mission with big smiles, and that happy vibe keeps on spreading from there.”
Raglan Kayak & Paddleboard’s years of experience and local expertise are the key to their easy-going friendly approach.
“We are passionate about creating outings that are accessible to everyone and where no experience is necessary, says co-owner Candide Reid.
“You don’t need to be a sporty person to join our tours or rentals. Our vision has always been about making people reconnect with their surroundings, their family and friends. Our kayaks and paddleboards are simply a tool to achieve that and we are here to help make it possible.”
The Reids have a summer suggestion for you: Join the fun and tick the Raglan-Bucket-List.
Enjoy the beach, try to surf, watch the sunset, experience our great cafes, go dancing and discover the famous limestone coast with your loved ones.
After all, you are here to escape the ordinary, right?
You can find Raglan Kayak & Paddleboard at the Bow Street Jetty by the water’s edge every day of the summer.
