waiheke tours Zip, Wine + Dine


Explore Waiheke like never before with our Fullers and EcoZip Adventure packages. Choose from either our EcoZip + Ferry package or our Zip, Wine, Dine + Ferry package and enjoy a full day of unique Waiheke experiences.

Both packages include complimentary pick up by EcoZip Adventures from Matiatia Ferry Terminal and include a Waiheke highlights tour of the top sightseeing spots on your journey to EcoZip’s visitor centre on the top of Trig Hill. Here the team will check you in, get you geared up and readied for one of Auckland’s most eco-friendly activities. Three 200m dual flying fox zip lines will fly you smoothly side-by-side down into a stunning tract of original and regenerating native bush. Enjoy a change of pace after your zipline experience with an easy 1.4km (0.9mile) guided nature walk back to base for nature lovers of all ages.

If you’re doing the EcoZip + Ferry package, you can choose from a range of drop-off locations afterwards to allow you to further explore the island at your own pace.

If you’re doing the Zip, Wine and Dine package, you will be dropped back to Matiatia Ferry Terminal in time for the 11.45am departure of the Fullers Taste Tour. Here you’ll enjoy wine and olive tasting at 3 vineyards and an olive grove, plus have the chance to indulge in locally produced foods such as mouth-watering preserves and world class olive oils. Tour includes a light lunch at Stonyridge Vineyard.

Orapiu Wharf – temporary closure

Over the past 4 months Orapiu Wharf has been partially closed due to the steps and boarding platforms requiring repair. We’ve continued operating our service by utilising the front face of the wharf, but this has come with many challenges.
Due to safety concerns for both our crew and passengers, we’ve made the decision to suspend services to the wharf until repairs are made.
Auckland Transport will undertake repairs and have advised they’ll endeavour to have these completed in order for the wharf to be operational prior to Easter.

We understand that Orapiu is a vital link for residents on Waiheke Island for travel to and from Coromandel, and apologise for the inconvenience this may cause you. During the time of this temporary closure, passengers will need to depart from downtown Auckland. 

 

If you have travel booked departing from Orapiu please contact 360 Discovery on 09 307 8005.


Gulf Harbour Service Update

Yesterday Discovery 3 finished refueling at 5.30pm and had an issue with a starter motor.

We immediately arranged a bus to replace the 5.45pm service, however because of the short time frame this meant we were only able to get a bus at approximately 6.00pm.

Shortly after this a temporary repair was made to Discovery 3 and we made the decision to relocate the vessel to Gulf Harbour to minimise crew working hours. Overnight we replaced the starter motor and she was back in service this morning.

We apologise for the inconvenience this disruption may have caused you.

Kind regards,

360 Discovery Team
