Overview

Experience the best of Waiheke - the Zip, Wine & Twilight Dine tour bundles the best selection of afternoon island activities into one stunning deal. After the adrenaline rush at EcoZip Adventures, spend a relaxing evening sampling some of the island's best wine and local fare.

What's included

Zipline tour at EcoZip Adventures - EcoZip Adventures is perched high on a hillside overlooking the islands' coves, bays and vines. Soar over a vineyard and spectacular native bush, on three 200-metre flying fox ziplines. Dual cables let you fly side-by-side with a friend, making this an exceptional shared experience.

Guided native bush walk - Exchange your birds-eye view for a stroll through lush, ancient forest. This easy 1.4km walk features New Zealand's most wonderful native flora.

Wine tasting at Stonyridge Vineyard - Nestled in a beautiful valley of olive trees and vines, Stonyridge is one of the most romantic and exotic venues in the greater Auckland area. Known for their Cabernet blends, Stonyridge also has a wonderful cafe menu, featuring fresh, locally-sourced ingredients.

Batch Winery tour and wine tasting - The highest-altitude vineyard on Waiheke Island, Batch offers incredible 360-degree views - from Coromandel to the Sky Tower. On the winery tour, you'll learn about Batch's gravity-fed wine production, plus sample their best batches.

Dinner at Thomas' Bach - Watch the sunset from Batch Winery's restaurant, before tucking into a seasonal two-course dinner. Thomas' Bach serves vintage Kiwi dishes with a modern flair and locally-sourced ingredients.

Ferry & coach transfers - The tour includes return ferry fare from downtown Auckland, as well as all coach transfers on Waiheke Island. Your local tour driver will meet the ferry at Matiatia Wharf, sharing the island's unique story on the scenic drive. After dinner, take in Auckland’s glittering skyline as you sail back to the city.
