Overview
Experience the best of Waiheke on a full-day tour that combines a morning of high-flying zipline adventure with an afternoon sampling the delicious wines and foods of the fertile island. Expert guides lead your zipline adventure and show you how to soar through the air. Afterward, celebrate with lunch and wine tasting at a premium vineyard, followed by two more wine tastings and visits to an olive oil estate and a Vineyard. If you want, take advantage of a complimentary bus pass to explore more of the island after your tour. Small-group tour limited to 12 people whilst ziplining and 35 on the vineyard tour ensures customized attention from your guides.

What to Expect
Arrive at Auckland Ferry Terminal for the 40-minute ride to Waiheke Island. From there, board a minivan to the zipline center, where your small group receives a safety briefing from a guide who sets you off on three flights. Zipline over Waiheke Island’s valley and vineyards. Upon landing, follow an easy 1-mile (1.5-km) path to the visitor center. From there, travel by air-conditioned coach and join a larger group for your afternoon tour. Sate your appetite with a light lunch and wine tasting at Stonyridge Vineyard. Follow lunch with a tour and tasting of award-winning olive oil at Rangihoua Estate. Next up is Casita Miro Vineyard for wine sampling. Your tour concludes at Mudbrick Vineyard where you sip wine overlooking Hauraki Gulf. Your driver returns you for a late-afternoon ferry to Auckland. If you'd rather take some time to explore on your own before returning, , use your complimentary bus pass to explore the island on your own and return on a later ferry.
