What You Can Expect

Waiheke Island Exploration and Zipline Day Trip from Auckland

Waiheke Island Exploration and Zipline Day Trip from Auckland

At your chosen time, catch the ferry to Waiheke Island (own expense), just 11 miles (18km) from Auckland, then be met at the island’s ferry terminal by your professional guide.

Enjoy a 25-minute mini-tour of Waiheke en route to the visitor center at Trig Hill, where you’ll have fabulous views from one of the island’s highest points, taking in panoramas of Auckland and the Hauraki Gulf.

Then check in, grab your safety gear, and make your way to the first viewing platform for your three exciting 655-foot (200-meter) zipline flights. With a maximum of 12 zipline participants, you'll receive personal attention from your expert guide. After an instructional briefing, you’ll be safely attached to the zipline by a full-body harness.

To ease you into the zipline experience gently, your first zipline flight takes you above an undulating vineyard for thrill that’s not quite as intense as bungy jumping – New Zealand’s most famous adrenaline-pumping pastime – but just as exciting!

The second and third zipline flights take you across a valley, above a carpet of native forest. To add to the adventure, the gradient is gradually increased on these two flights.

Back on the ground, take an easy 1-mile (1.5-km) interpretive forest walk back to the visitor center on your own. You’ll learn about New Zealand’s diverse flora and fauna.

After your eco-adventure, you’ll be returned to the island’s terminal, where ferries make the 40-minute trip back to Auckland roughly every hour (own expense, approximately $35 per passenger return ticket).

Do it! I am afraid of heights and I did it. Good exercise too when getting back :

We really enjoyed this afternoon. The staff were fabulous and very thorough - I felt very secure in jumping off.
The nature walk back to Reception was a lovely way to end the adrenaline rush of minutes before!
