It was raining on the day we went, not a hard rain but an annoying drizzling rain, but we zip lined any way. It was fantastic! There are two lines running in tandem so you can race each other. We rented a gro pro and it was a good investment because then we could actually see the scenery we zoomed across. The last line is particularly fast....and steep...thrilling! After the zip line, we do a bush walk, up and down the mountain to get back to base. It was a bit challenging because of the mud, but under the canapy the forest was magical. Definitely wear good trekking shoes.
This tour was amazing! I loved the three zip lines. So much fun! And tour guides picked us up from the shops instead of the ferry station, which made it very convenient for us to see other parts of the island, too.
Amazing time, beautiful scenery everything about the trip was fab. The zip lining is just wow, well worth going
Excellent. We were well looked after and an experience to remember
What a fantastic experience. A must do when visiting the Island.
It was great! Wonderful communication to my questions. Small group. They were very concerned about our safety first and then our fun. The lines are fast - meaning it takes more time to get ready than the actually zipping but very much worth it. They tell you what goes down must go up - and so it is. We had a nice walk up.
The group at EcoZip tours were phenomenal!! We highly recommend doing this excursion as you get a full history of Wahike Island and the zip line experience. I also recommend staying for lunch on the island then taking a later ferry back to Auckland. Excellent excursion and will do it again when we come back to New Zealand.
This zip-line adventure was one of our most favorite activities while in New Zealand. Not only were the guides very helpful, but the thrill was exceptional!!
Fantastic tour. Wonderful combination of the zipline and a walk through the safe forest between each zipline. Absolutely beautiful and informative.
I was scared of heights but did it, and I was so glad. Its very exhilerating.
Well done to the two guides Beck and Charity, they worked well as a team, very professional.
What a beautiful Island. Well worth the visit, wish I could have stayed a night or two.
Fantastic day, enjoyed by all on the tour! Lots of laughs and happy memories.
I had a great time. The guys were fun and very informative about the wildlife in the bush.
It was amazing! Jeremy picked us up from the ferry terminal and he was so lovely. The staff at zip-line were very through in making sure we were all safe. Overall, had an awesome time flying over the forest and the walk through the bushland is just magical. Our guide was so funny and very knowledgeable. I just recommend wearing gum boots or shoes that you won't mind getting dirty because they will get really dirty! The island itself is just so beautiful with breathtaking views all over. Do not forget your camera!
The zip line trip was awesome! ! Be prepared to hike back after the last zip but not hard and guides were great! Don't forget your go pro!

This is one of the best things I have ever done. We took the ferry to Waiheke Island and this itself was well worth it. As promised Jake was at the terminal waiting for us. We were very lucky there was only four in our group for the day. We had a beautiful scenic drive including a photo stop to ziplines. Jake and Sarah were so competent and safety conscious we all felt very safe and comfortable attempting our first zipline. It is such good fund and very exhilarating. A little tip - very hard to concentrate on taking a video and hanging on at the same time for first timers. They do offer hire of a camera pro that fits on your helmet to film for around A39. We had a good idea of giving our camera to the other couple so they could film us and we have theirs to film them. Unfortunately we didn't think of this until after the third and final zipline. Really, really good day and we go Jake to drop us back in the little town where we found some lovely little bars and restaurants. Cannot rave enough about Jake and Sarah they were excellent guides. After the zipline you get a magnificent walk back to base through the rainforest of about 20 minutes. This alone was well worth going there. Well done Waiheke Island and Zipline!!!
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!
OMG Just unbelievable you really really must do this it is soooooooooo TOTALLY AWESOME- We would do it again in a flash LOVED IT
What a great event. The guides technicians that help you were exceptional! the entire system is almost brand new and probably the safest in the world. The views from the location on Waiheke were amazing. The ziplines themselves were exhilarating! particularly like the auto braking. Be sure and get the Go Pro selfie option. The hike backup was almost as fun as it was a lesson in New Zealand nature marvels. A trip to New Zealand is incomplete without doing this trip!
This was spectacular. The walk back up was somewhat challenging I would definitely do it again
We had a great time on the zip lines and enjoyed our walk on the island. So beautiful!
fantastic day even the bad weather did not spoil it and the two guides were just great
amazing!! The tour guides were amazing and the experience was fantastic! We have been talking about it none stop since we've returned! Defiantly going back again! Loved every minute of it!!
