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.
