What To Expect

Your tour begins at the Waiheke Island Ferry Terminal. Meet your guide and travel 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 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 interpretive bush walk back to the visitor center on your own. Afterward, you’re transferred to the ferry terminal for the return ride to Auckland.

A wonderful zip line experience for beginners
Heather_M, Aug 2023
What a fun experience! Kyle and Jess were great — very helpful and understanding of beginners. I felt safe the whole time! The forest walk wasn’t difficult, but a little more strenuous than expected. We had to rush it because of time restraints, and it was more exertion than anticipated, so keep that in mind if you have difficulty with inclines or speed. But the scenery was magical!
Do it again

A wonderful and memorable afternoon on the beautiful island of Waieke. Lily, Spider and David were superb guides and instructors. The ziplining was fabulous, and almost as enjoyable was the 20-minute hike through the restored rain forest back to EcoZip headquarters.

The fun nature of the event. The staff were informative and personable. The bush walk could have been more informative with regard to conservation and the name of different plants
A nature thrill by Air
Sean_H, Oct 2022
A great experience to get in touch with nature on the island, not only on the zip-line but with the experienced guides on the bush walk who are very knowledgeable about the local environment. The Ziplines were the highlight and a must do on the island. A Special thanks as well to our driver David who was nice enough to see us waiting out the front of the winery for a bus that he dropped us at hours prior and saw us and stopped and picked us up to take us to the ferry terminal. It was greatly appreciated.
A must NZ experience
Ali_O, Sept 2022

HIGHLY RECOMMEND - not to be missed

Do not leave Auckland with out doing this - brilliant fun, fantastic views, top security and wonderful staff. Don't wear white shoes or forget your GO PRO !!!!!
Fun day at Waiheke
Volker_M, Mar 2020
Well organized and very safe experience. The three zip lines provide a good first experience to this activity. If you are an experienced zip liner, might be a little tame for you. Staff was excellent including our driver. He dropped us off at one of the local wineries and showed us a short cut to walk back to the ferry.
