What You Can Expect

Waiheke Island Exploration and Zipline Day Trip from Auckland

Waiheke Island Exploration and Zipline Day Trip from Auckland

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.

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2018

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!

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.

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!

So much fun! Zipline was great there are 3 lines but so was the nature walk afterwards.

Excellent experience. Not as thrilling as a bungee but it is definitely a good start for your adventure. Staff were good.

I love zip lines, so getting a course while traveling in NZ was a must. These are three short lines but over beautiful territory. That being said, the eco hike after the zip lines was the highlight! After the third line, you hike about a mile back to the start thru a forest of awesomeness. The guide, Honey, was wonderful. She stopped to explain and talk about almost every variety of trees, flowers, and birds. If this is not your thing, this may not be your tour. We were paired up with five young boys, which caused a bit of a distraction for the line guides, but still worth the experience. The pickup at the ferry was easy, and the driver told us and then drove us to an awesome place for lunch, Mudbrick. After a long lunch and wonderful wine we hiked thru the woods back to the ferry, which made the journey complete.
