What You'll Get
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Hauraki Gulf, Auckland Central, Auckland New Zealand
Stop At: EcoZip Adventures, 150 Trig Hill Road, Oneroa, Auckland, Waiheke Island 1081 New Zealand
After checking in at the visitor center, put on your safety gear and follow your expert guide to the first viewing platform for the first of your three exciting 655-foot (200-meter) zipline flights. Before being securely attached to the zipline by a full-body harness, receive an instructional briefing from your guide. Personal attention is assured, as numbers are limited to a maximum of 12 zipline participants.
Your zipline adventure begins with a gentle flight above the rolling contours of a vineyard, easing you into the zipline experience. Then the excitement cranks up as the gradient is gradually increased on your next two flights, taking you soaring across a valley and above the treetops of New Zealand’s native forest.
Your Waiheke Island adventure continues back on the ground as you take an easy, guided 1-mile (1.5-km) interpretive forest walk back to the visitor center. You'll learn about New Zealand’s diverse flora and fauna as you walk.
Leaving the visitor center, return to the ferry terminal by minivan and catch the 40-minute ferry ride back to Auckland’s Pier 2, less than a 10-minute walk from your cruise ship.
