Soar through the treetops of Waiheke Island on a three-course zipline tour with aerial views of Hauraki Gulf. After a quick ferry from Auckland, your half-day tour of Waiheke starts with a brief overview of the idyllic island by minivan and ends with an interpretive bushland walk. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 12 participants to ensure a more personalized experience in a small group.
  • Day trip to Waiheke Island and zipline adventure from Auckland
  • Take a 25-minute tour of Waiheke by minivan
  • Fly over the forest with three zipline flights
  • Explore the native bushland on an interpretive forest walk
  • Learn about Waiheke's natural environment and conservation from a professional guide
  • Choice of two morning departure times
  • Small-group tour with a maximum 12 participants ensures a more personalized experience
At your selected departure time, board the ferry from Auckland to Waiheke Island, just 11 miles (18 km) across the Hauraki Gulf (own expense). Arriving at the Waiheke Island Ferry Terminal, you’ll be transported by minivan to the visitor center at Trig Hill, which boasts panoramic views from one of the island’s highest vistas.
Sightsee Waiheke with a professional guide during the 25-minute minivan ride en route to the zipline circuit to check in and gear up. After an instructional briefing, make your way to the first platform where a guide safely attaches your harness to the cable. Feel the thrill as you lift off for the first of three 655-foot (200-meter) zipline flights.
To ease you into the zipline experience gently, your first zipline flight takes you above a picturesque vineyard, then across a valley and native New Zealand forest. The gradient increases gradually until you’re back on firm ground for an easy 1-mile (1.6-km) interpretive bush walk back to the visitor center on your own. Afterward, you’re transferred to the ferry terminal for the 40-minute return ride to Auckland.

Fly above the top of the rain forest canopy then walk back to the top underneath the rain forest canopy so tranquil and beautiful.

Amazing zip lining and hike. The staff go above and beyond! My daughter is ten years old and said it was the best experience ever! We agree!

First time zipliner and I had high expectations, this tour did not disappoint. Walked from ferry to town center and had lunch, then took the high track back down to the ferry. Had a great day on Waiheke.

Great time was had by ALL including myself who is terrified at the thought of zip lining. The great guides made me feel safe and assured throughout the experience - including equipment safety checks before each flight. The last flight was the overall favorite of all. HIGHLY recommend to all levels of experience. The walk back was also fun and informative learning about the forest.

The zip lining was a fabulous way to experience some breathtaking views of the island and harbors below. Honey and Chook were great instructors and kept us safe while injecting humor into what we were doing. Would do again absolutely!

If you are going mainly for zip line then you could find better else where in New Zealand. However if you going to support the cause and commitment of the people on Waiheke people then it is worth it. That way I am glad i went.

Fantastic fun! I will definately go back and do this again. I had so much fun doing the different zip lines, then a not too strenuous walk back to the top.
Highly recommend

Amazing experience! A great mix of adrenaline fun and a short nature walk to learn more about the preserved eco system on Waiheke Island. There are 3 zip lines in total and they all provide an exceptional view of the surrounding.
I think the trip is of good value as well compare to other ziplining options in NZ. The driver picked me up from the ferry terminal and provided all of us a brief and interesting history of the island, our guides were friendly and professional and made sure everyone is safe and feels that way too. I also enjoyed the nature walk at the end, so many interesting facts and it's great to know how much the company and NZ is currently doing to preserve the environment.

Beautiful views from the top of the hill, great instructors and a nice final hike back through the forest to the start. Hopefully they'll add another line because three goes by so fast!

This is such an awesome day trip, it's the most fun I have had ever! The zipline was so much fun, the instructors made me feel reassured and safe. You get picked up from the ferry terminal at the island and dropped where the zipline tour is. The zipline tour is approximately 2 hours and also includes a tour around the forest which was really nice. Worth the money!
