Raglan Boat Charters

Raglan is an historic fishing village that morphed into a surfing mecca in the 60s & in the 2000s grew in its art, music and food culture. Best viewed from the water our boat Wahinemoe (sleeping lady) has been serving tourists for 12 years.

Raglan Boat Charters is located at the Raglan Wharf on Whaingaroa Harbour, the West Coast of New Zealand's North Island, 40 km's from Hamilton and approx 150kms from Auckland, Tauranga and Rotorua.

About our Cruises: Departing Raglan Wharf aboard the Wahinemoe to explore the charm of Whaingaroa Harbour – cruise past large conservation reserves, farmland and fishing villages. You will see marine wildlife and ancient limestone rock formations, and listen to fascinating tales about the history and culture of this very special area. Your friendly skipper and crew will take great care of you and make sure you have a magical experience. The sunset cruise is the best and its extremely rare on the west coast to find such an excellent viewpoint.
