Premium Zip Wine Dine

Description: If you would like to add a zipline adventure to your tour, we'll pick you up from Matiatia wharf, or from Oneroa Village (if you're already on the island) and transport you to the EcoZip Adventures site on Trig Hill for a flying fox zipline and guided hike experience. Three 200m dual flying fox ziplines will fly you smoothly side-by-side with a partner, friend or relative down into a stunning tract of original and regenerating native bush (forest). It's a scenic interpretive walk back to base, where you'll learn about local flora and fauna and the conservation of our spectacular natural environment. Afterwards, we will pick you up and take you to three of the top vineyards on the Island, according to your preference and seasonal availability. View Waiheke vineyards »The tour includes a platter-style lunch at one of these vineyards. The platter comes with a flavoursome assortment of meats, seafood, dips and bread. (A vegetarian option is also available, on request). Fine dining lunch options can also be arranged. You will then be returned to your accommodation or to a late afternoon ferry back to Auckland.

Nature Tours

Description: Stroll through beautiful native bush and along protected beaches, where you may see rare New Zealand dotterels, kereru (wood pigeons), tui, fantails, song thrushes, kingfishers and many other species.
