What You Can Expect

Auckland Shore Excursion: Waiheke Island Tour With Zipline Adventure

Waiheke Island

Make your way to Pier 2 at the Auckland ferry terminal — less than a 10-minute walk from the cruise ship port — and catch a morning ferry to Waiheke Island to begin your shore excursion. 

The 45-minute ferry ride takes you across the Hauraki Gulf with superior harbor views of Auckland. On arrival, you’re greeted by a professional guide who takes you on a 25-minute tour of Waiheke Island by minivan. Catch sight of the city skyline from atop Trig Hill, one of the island’s highest points.

Here, check in at the visitor center, receive your safety gear and hear an instructional briefing from an expert zipline guide who offers personalized attention in your small group limited to 12. Head up to a platform where you’re securely attached to the cable by a full-body harness, and begin the first of three 655-foot (200-meter) flights through the forest canopy.

Your zipline adventure starts out gently above a vineyard, but the gradient gradually increases on the following two flights as you zoom across a valley and through the treetops canopy.

Back on firm ground, continue your Waiheke Island excursion with a guided 1-mile (1.5-km) walk on an easy interpretive forest trail back to the visitor center. You’re transferred by minivan to the ferry terminal for the return ferry ride to Auckland’s Pier 2.
