What You Can Expect

The Best of Waiheke: Ziplining, Wine Tasting and Vineyard Lunch

The Best of Waiheke: Ziplining

Make your way to the Auckland Ferry Terminal for the 40-minute ferry ride to Waiheke Island. You’ll board a minivan for the transfer to the zipline center, where your small group receives a safety briefing from an experienced guide who safely attaches your harness to a cable at the treetops platform and sets you off on your first of three flights.
Zipline over a verdant valley and vineyards as you take in the surrounding beauty of Waiheke Island from above. Upon landing, follow an easy 1-mile (1.5-km) path on foot through the forest to the visitor center. Sate your appetite with a light lunch and wine tasting at one of Waiheke’s premium wineries: Stonyridge Vineyard. You’ll travel there by air-conditioned coach and join a larger group for your afternoon tour.
Follow up lunch with a tasting of several award-winning varieties of olive oil at Rangihoua Estate, where you’ll discover the process of making extra virgin olive oil and stroll the olive orchards. Next up is Casita Miro Vineyard for a sampling of wine. Your tour concludes at Mudbrick Vineyard to sip fine wines while enjoying views over the lush gardens and Hauraki Gulf.
Your driver takes you to the Waiheke Island Ferry Terminal for a late-afternoon ferry back to Auckland. Alternatively, use your complimentary All Day Bus Pass to explore more of the island on your own. Ferries run until late evening; check the schedule for details.

We really enjoyed this day trip .
Easy ferry trip to waiheke from ferry terminal....just don't let the ferry ticket operator convince you to take a later ferry...you'll miss the zip lining if you do!
Comfortable minibus transfer to the zipline base.We had zip lined before but we really enjoyed the 3 different lines offered.
Very professional and fun experience. amazing views.

Excellent combination tour. The two companies involved zip-line and wine tour worked well together to get us where we needed to be on time. We lucked out for both tours since we were visiting in the off-season. We were the only two people on the ziplining tour, so we had incredible one-on-one attention with the two instructors. Our safety was their first concern and they did a great job instructing us so we were confident and enjoying ourselves. Beautiful location with stunning views! They pick you up and drop you back off at the ferry terminal. The wait for the wine tour at the ferry is short after ziplining and the bus is small and comfortable. Our driver was a native of the island and full of knowledge and history. With only 7 people on the tour, she changed up her route to show us some amazing views. The three vineyards and one olive oil plantation were excellent choices. The lunch at the first vineyard was a fantastic quiche with family-style salad, bread, etc. The final vineyard had a wonderful tour that walked you through the vineyard. This tour is a must if you like a little thrill and a little chill.

A great day to spend flying over the treetops and sipping wine. My wife and our 19 year old son enjoyed everything about this trip. The ziplining was exciting enough to keep my son engaged and not too exciting to scare my wife - nice balance. The wineries were all nice properties with great views. Highly recommend it.
