The tour commences with a drive along the scenic northern route, taking in spectacular views of the Hauraki Gulf and beyond to the Coromandel Peninsula.
Visit three vineyards for wine tasting with a delicious vineyard platter-style lunch at the second vineyard, including a glass of wine.
If time allows, after lunch head towards Onetangi, a 1.87-kilometre long, north-facing beach with beautiful old Pohutukawa trees on the foreshore. For many years it has been the site of the Onetangi Beach Races.
The final stop is at a picturesque vineyard overlooking the Hauraki Gulf. Enjoy a wine tasting here and take in the view.
If you wish, from here you can stay on for dinner (at your own expense) and make your own way back to the ferry when you are ready or alternatively the guide will return you to the Waiheke Wharf in time to catch the 5pm ferry back to Auckland.
