What's Included

Ferry & transfers: Sit back and relax as you cruise to Waiheke Island. Return ferry fare from Downtown Auckland, as well as well as return transfers to your restaurant of choice.

Lunch: Dine at one of four award-winning vineyard restaurants. Featuring local island fare and house wines, each menu uses seasonal ingredients perfect for the colder weather. All experiences include house wine to make the perfect pairing. Choose from:

  • Mudbrick Vineyard: Talk about ambience. Perched on a hill, Mudbrick’s Archive Bar & Bistro has beautiful views across the gulf – making downtown Auckland feel worlds away. Enjoy a decadent charcuterie board, something sweet and a glass of wine.
  • Thomas’s Bach: Batch Winery is the highest altitude vineyard on the island, so you know the views are epic. The in-house restaurant specialises in upscale Kiwi classics. Your two-course lunch includes a sharing board, plus your choice of seasonal mains and glass of wine.
  • Casita Miro: Gaudi architecture and gulf views – what could get better? Enjoy Spanish tapas-style dining. Along with a glass of wine, the shared menu includes a main and side, complete with homemade focaccia bread to start and churros to end.
  • Cable Bay: This progressive meal starts with a wine tasting in the Cellar Door, followed by lunch in The Verandah. The restaurant’s terrace is surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. Choose from a selection of pizzas fresh from the signature woodfired oven, paired with a fresh salad.
