Take a Private Surf Lesson at Raglan

Catch some waves in Raglan with a private surf lesson.

Learning to surf is a truly unforgettable experience and Raglan is one of the greatest surfing destinations in New Zealand to do so.

If you’re a complete novice, or if you’ve already surfed a bit and you’re looking to take your surfing to the next level, maybe venture further out the back to catch green waves; a private lesson is perfect for you.

Raglan’s professional instructors can tailor your lesson to suit your ability and will spend every moment teaching just you. They’ll get you progressing faster!

A private lesson allows the instructor to understand your needs quicker so they can adapt their teaching methods to your personality, style and level.
You’ll get to learn to read the waves and understand the spot.

This coastal town with its magnificent black sand coastline is an absolute surfing mecca. Raglan offers world-class surf breaks and some of the most consistent surf in the country. With a bit of help from your instructor you’ll be riding the waves like a pro in no time.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

We’ve found learning to surf to be  popular choice by Chuffed recipients. We think it’s probably one of those things people would like to try but never get around to it. So when you are given a gift with it as an option, suddenly there is a reason. And we have found the team at Raglan Surf to be a delight to work with.

As the sun goes down, begin your journey into the ancient stream flowing off Mount Karioi.

Wrapped up in the latest canyoning suits, the fun begins by abseiling into the freshwater pools. As you descend, you’ll climb and abseil the cascading waterfalls all whilst under the light of your head torch, and the luminescent shine of the glow worms!

Feel safe in the company of an experienced guide, as they lead you on a great adventure. Throughout the trip hear the stories, history, and knowledge of the landscape and local area from your passionate guide, all whilst having those photos captured for you to reflect on later!!

Following the stream find yourself in awe of the native flora and fauna surrounding you. As darkness falls, you’ll begin to see the luminescent transformation take place. Witness new worlds of light being created by the  glowworms who call this place home. Take a minute to stop for a moment of peace and tranquillity, with a hot cup of freshly made Kawakawa tea.

 

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

Raglan Rock were one of Chuffed’s first partenrs and they have proved to be one of the most popular. People love discovering new places and experiences that are a little less known and off the well known tourist routes. And this definitely fits that bill! Plus it’s an epic adventure.

Cruise the Pelorus Sound on the world famous Mail Run cruise!

We think being a ‘sea postie’ is one of the best jobs in the world, and it is something you can experience onboard with the Pelorus Mailboat all year round!

Delivering the mail by sea in the Marlborough Sounds is a truly unique experience. This full-day cruise is a chance to see an authentic, fascinating slice of daily life in this remote part of the NZ.

The Pelorus Mail Boat has been operating for more than a century. As a sea postie for a day, you’ll cruise through the largest, quietest and most remote part of the Marlborough Sounds – Pelorus Sound/Te Hoiere and Kenepuru Sound, and experience what we reckon is the best job in the world.

Between deliveries and pick-ups of mail, parcels and supplies, relax on a spacious catamaran and marvel at the stunning scenery of clear blue water in tranquil coves and bush-clad hillsides. Meet some of the residents who await the Pelorus Mail Boat on far-flung jetties, unspoilt beaches or who meet your boat on their boats. A highlight for many passengers is the variety of four-footed furry residents who accompany their owners when you arrive.

The friendly, fun local crew will provide informative and entertainment commentary about life in this isolated part of the Marlborough Sounds. You’ll learn what life far away from the nearest road is really like, along with some of the area’s fascinating history. The crew will also keep an expert eye for local marine wildlife including dolphins, seals, penguins and stingrays.

There is free tea, coffee and hot water onboard – please bring your own lunch. Havelock has several cafes, a bakery and a small supermarket where you can stock up before you check in.

Elegant & Scenic cruise aboard Faith on Lake Te Anau

There’s good reason that Fiordland is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Area. Aboard Faith you sail across the deep waters of Lake Te Anau, between untouched mountains, and into South Fiord. A short, guided walk reveals to you the mystique of Hidden Lakes.

Faith is a 19.7 metre (64.6 foot), wooden motor-sailer, built in 1935 in Scotland. She served in WW2, hosted Sir Winston Churchill, has sailed all over the world and now calls Lake Te Anau and Fiordland National Park her home. There’s no other boat like her in New Zealand and no better way to experience the tranquility of this famous World Heritage Area.

The serenity of sailing across Lake Te Anau and into South Fiord is surprising. You breathe deeply the pristine air during a short, guided walk through an ancient forest. Hidden Lakes reveal their treasures to you.

Drinks and canapés are your reward; relax on deck or in the grand, wood-panelled cabin as Faith carries you home again. Help hoist the sails. Visit the engine room. Learn the remarkable history of this elegant lady.

Sailing away in the Abel Tasman

Exploring the Abel Tasman should be on everybody’s ‘must do’ list sometime in their lifetime, and we can’t think of a most relaxing and effortless way than on a large sailing Catamaran.

This package includes a water taxi from Kaiteriteri Beach to Anchorage Beach in the National Park. Depending on how long you want to spend on the beach at Anchorage, you can choose your time for the water taxi to suit you – 9.00am, 10.30am, 12.00pm, or 12.40pm.

At Anchorage Beach you will meet your catamaran at 1.30pm for a 3 hour sail back to Kaiteriteri. Along the way you’ll learn about the Abel Tasman National Park, see secluded coves, golden sand beaches and visit a fur seal colony. A stop at the Split Apple Rock is also included.

You’ll arrive back at Kaiteriteri at approximately 4.30pm.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy:

When we were researching partners to become part of the Chuffed offering we very quickly decided we needed an effortless option for people to explore the Abel Tasman National Park. Often we associate kayaks and walkers with the Abel Tasman but that isn’t for everybody. So a water taxi and sailing experience to enjoy this ultimate summer beauty spot we thought ticked those boxes. Jane-Maree & Martin Holmes have been operating sailing adventures in the region for 23 years so we thought they were the perfect match for Chuffed.
