What you can expect

The perfect mix of adrenaline and sightseeing – this full day EcoZip and Wine Tour showcases the best aspects of Waiheke Island.

Catch the 8:00am ferry from downtown Auckland to Matiatia Wharf on Waiheke Island and meet your transfer for the 20 minute journey to the EcoZip base. Enroute you will be introduced to the quaint sights and sounds of the place the Lonely Planet guide describes as ’93 square km of island bliss’, Waiheke Island. This journey includes views of Waiheke Island's golden beaches, charming olive groves, world-class vineyards and multi-million dollar properties, with commentary from your knowledgeable guide.

Once you arrive at EcoZip Adventures, you will get to experience a unique take on Waiheke Island via a series of ziplines and a guided walk amongst the forest. With three unique, 200m ziplines in total (all tandem so you can race your friends), all have increasing gradients and a variety of perspectives across the stunning Waiheke Island views.

The second half of your day is designed for you to sit back and relax, as your informative and local Enjoi Wine Tours guide will tour you around Waiheke Island's best wineries. Your Enjoi Wine Tours guide can take you to a stunning vineyard or a local beachside café for lunch at your leisure, before departing off to tastings at two or three of the vineyards. While you are taking in the sights, your Enjoi Wine Tours guide will fill you in on the history of Waiheke Island and wine specialities. Enjoy complimentary wine tastings and learn the background on why Waiheke Island is famous for Syrah and Bordeaux-style blends, as well as brilliant aromatic whites.
