While that doesn’t make them feel any younger, it surely makes Raglan Kayak owners super proud to be standing here, still passionate, living their dream.
Owners and operators Steve & Candide Reid have mastered the art of delivering memorable experiences, with quality service, safety and fun being at the centre of all they do. Their extended knowledge of the area makes them a stand out operation that sees every customer striving as they paddle back from a well briefed and cruisy outing.
Now a truly well established business; Raglan Kayak & SUP has made it through all sorts of weather. Neither the storms nor the wharf fire could divert them from their vision. Their secret; “we’re all about good times!” says Steve. “Kayaking or stand up paddling are simply tools to get out in our gorgeous harbour and have fun. It’s so stunning out there! We are here to encourage anyone who’s keen to give it a go!” says Steve.
After years running the business, what are the highlights? “Kids posting us amazing letters saying how the experience changed their lives. This means the world to us” says Candide.
So what’s next? “We’re always striving to evolve; to reach out and share the passion with others. Definitely keen to keep making a stand for a positive business approach” says Steve.
If you’re keen to experience it for your self, call their team first, pack a lunch, grab your fishing rod and get out in the harbour this summer with family and friends. Raglan Kayak & SUP operates daily from Bow Street Jetty by the water’s edge. If they’re not standing right there, they’re always just a quick phone call away!
