Directions: make your way to Waiheke Island with Fullers ferries from downtown Auckland. Meeting point: Waiheke Island's; Matiatia ferry terminal. You need to be at the meeting point 30 minutes prior to your selected tour time.

This activity will end right where it started.
Your tour begins at the Waiheke Island Ferry Terminal. Meet your guide and travel by minivan to the visitor center at Trig Hill, which boasts panoramic views from one of the island’s highest vistas.

Sightsee Waiheke with a professional guide during the minivan ride en route to the zipline circuit to check in and gear up. After an instructional briefing, make your way to the first platform where a guide safely attaches your harness to the cable. Feel the thrill as you lift off for the first of three 655-foot (200-meter) zipline flights.

To ease you into the zipline experience gently, your first zipline flight takes you above a picturesque vineyard, then across a valley and native New Zealand forest. The gradient increases gradually until you’re back on firm ground for an easy interpretive bush walk back to the visitor center on your own. Afterward, you’re transferred to the ferry terminal for the return ride to Auckland.

Fun day at Waiheke
, Mar 2020
Well organized and very safe experience. The three zip lines provide a good first experience to this activity. If you are an experienced zip liner, might be a little tame for you. Staff was excellent including our driver. He dropped us off at one of the local wineries and showed us a short cut to walk back to the ferry.

Nice viewpoints from the start and "mid-way" points and pleasant "jungle" walk back to start point. Fairly exhilarating zip lines. Helpful, knowledgeable staff; always felt safe. After zip lining was finished, glad took advice to be left off at village as opposed to back at the ferry. About a 20 minute walk from village to ferry, and nice to spend some time in the village. Tour guide had a great suggestion for a lunch place, too!! I was not interested in a winery tour, so this was a fun thing to do on the island. I went solo, but there was a group of about 6 of us in total.
Highly enjoyable

I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever time ziplining! Each zipline got bigger and faster. A guided walk followed through the forest which was highly informative. Would recommend to anyone young or old.
So much Fun!
, Feb 2020
What a great excursion. The two guides we had made it so much fun. There were 3 ziplines, each one getting longer and faster as it progressed. There was a bush walk after back to the center and that was very beautiful. Thank you!! It was alot of fun!!!

Stacy at Ecozip was wonderful! Our reservation was for 1:45 trip but we were on a cruise and our all aboard was 5:30, it would have been a return at 5:45 if we keep our original reservation. Stacy moved up our reservation and walked us into an earlier group so we could make the 4:00 ferry and get back with time to spare. The views on each of the zip line runs was beautiful and never had a worry about the equipment. A plus experience, I would do it again! Love everything about Ecozip
One of the best adventure in waiheke!

Thank you so much for Eco zip line for this wonderful and exciting adventure! Would say you really can't miss out this! Specially thank you to our coaches Dan and Michael for taking great care of us. Also to the lady who stayed behind and waited us to return n pick up my friends phone, you are a legend!

Awesome day out, wish it was longer. My girls first zip lining and loved it. Host/ nature guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Great Day!
Amazing experience!

It was an amazing experience to go on the zipline this time! We missed it 2 years ago on our trip here to New Zealand & we were determined to go back. It’s all worth it! The staff was equally friendly & helpful! This is something we will go back to when we go back here.

Good short thrill! Three different zip-line and it gets higher and longer as you progress. Nice view as you zip line across! The instructors was great!
Good times!!

Fly above the top of the rain forest canopy then walk back to the top underneath the rain forest canopy so tranquil and beautiful.
Best experience we had in NZ!

First time zipliner and I had high expectations, this tour did not disappoint. Walked from ferry to town center and had lunch, then took the high track back down to the ferry. Had a great day on Waiheke.

Great time was had by ALL including myself who is terrified at the thought of zip lining. The great guides made me feel safe and assured throughout the experience - including equipment safety checks before each flight. The last flight was the overall favorite of all. HIGHLY recommend to all levels of experience. The walk back was also fun and informative learning about the forest.

The zip lining was a fabulous way to experience some breathtaking views of the island and harbors below. Honey and Chook were great instructors and kept us safe while injecting humor into what we were doing. Would do again absolutely!

If you are going mainly for zip line then you could find better else where in New Zealand. However if you going to support the cause and commitment of the people on Waiheke people then it is worth it. That way I am glad i went.

Amazing experience! A great mix of adrenaline fun and a short nature walk to learn more about the preserved eco system on Waiheke Island. There are 3 zip lines in total and they all provide an exceptional view of the surrounding. I think the trip is of good value as well compare to other ziplining options in NZ. The driver picked me up from the ferry terminal and provided all of us a brief and interesting history of the island, our guides were friendly and professional and made sure everyone is safe and feels that way too. I also enjoyed the nature walk at the end, so many interesting facts and it's great to know how much the company and NZ is currently doing to preserve the environment.

Beautiful views from the top of the hill, great instructors and a nice final hike back through the forest to the start. Hopefully they'll add another line because three goes by so fast!

This is such an awesome day trip, it's the most fun I have had ever! The zipline was so much fun, the instructors made me feel reassured and safe. You get picked up from the ferry terminal at the island and dropped where the zipline tour is. The zipline tour is approximately 2 hours and also includes a tour around the forest which was really nice. Worth the money!
