A day of excitement and nature awaits on Waiheke Island, with three zipline flights above the forest, an interpretive walk through native bushland, and a mini-tour of the island. Just a short ferry ride from Auckland, Waiheke island is an idyllic location for a zipline adventure, with stunning views over the Hauraki gulf.

Know More about this tour

At your chosen time, catch the ferry to Waiheke island (own expense), just 11 miles (18km) from Auckland, then be met at the islands ferry terminal by your professional guide.

Enjoy a 25-minute mini-tour of Waiheke en route to the visitor center at Trig Hill, where youll have fabulous views from one of the islands highest points, taking in panoramas of Auckland and the Hauraki gulf.

Then check in, grab your safety gear, and make your way to the first viewing platform for your three exciting 655-foot (200-meter) zipline flights. With a maximum of 12 zipline participants, you'll receive personal attention from your expert guide. After an instructional briefing, youll be safely attached to the zipline by a full-body harness.

To ease you into the zipline experience gently, your first zipline flight takes you above an undulating vineyard for thrill thats not quite as intense as bungy jumping New Zealands most famous adrenaline-pumping pastime but just as exciting!

The second and third zipline flights take you across a valley, above a carpet of native forest. To add to the adventure, the gradient is gradually increased on these two flights.

Back on the ground, take an easy 1-mile (1.5-km) interpretive forest walk back to the visitor center on your own. Youll learn about New Zealands diverse flora and fauna.

After your eco-adventure, youll be returned to the islands terminal, where ferries make the 40-minute trip back to Auckland roughly every hour (own expense, approximately $35 per passenger return ticket).

    Nice viewpoints from the start and "mid-way" points and pleasant "jungle" walk back to start point. Fairly exhilarating zip lines. Helpful, knowledgeable staff; always felt safe. After zip lining was finished, glad took advice to be left off at village as opposed to back at the ferry. About a 20 minute walk from village to ferry, and nice to spend some time in the village. Tour guide had a great suggestion for a lunch place, too!! I was not interested in a winery tour, so this was a fun thing to do on the island. I went solo, but there was a group of about 6 of us in total.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever time ziplining! Each zipline got bigger and faster. A guided walk followed through the forest which was highly informative. Would recommend to anyone young or old.

    What a great excursion. The two guides we had made it so much fun. There were 3 ziplines, each one getting longer and faster as it progressed. There was a bush walk after back to the center and that was very beautiful. Thank you!! It was alot of fun!!!

    Stacy at Ecozip was wonderful! Our reservation was for 1:45 trip but we were on a cruise and our all aboard was 5:30, it would have been a return at 5:45 if we keep our original reservation. Stacy moved up our reservation and walked us into an earlier group so we could make the 4:00 ferry and get back with time to spare. The views on each of the zip line runs was beautiful and never had a worry about the equipment. A plus experience, I would do it again! Love everything about Ecozip

    It was an amazing experience to go on the zipline this time! We missed it 2 years ago on our trip here to New Zealand and we were determined to go back. It’s all worth it! The staff was equally friendly and helpful! This is something we will go back to when we go back here.

    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.
