Auckland Shore Excursion: Waiheke Island Tour With Zipline Adventure
From US$111.20
Overview
When your ship docks in Auckland, take a ferry across the Hauraki Gulf to Waiheke Island for a zipline adventure, soaring above the forest. Enjoy a small-group experience with a maximum of 12 participants along three zipline rides. Your shore excursion includes a round-trip ferry ticket plus an interpretive bush walk and a brief guided tour of the island by minivan.
What to Expect
Make your way to Pier 2 at the Auckland ferry terminal — less than a 10-minute walk from the cruise ship port — and catch a morning ferry to Waiheke Island to begin your shore excursion. 
The 45-minute ferry ride takes you across the Hauraki Gulf with superior harbor views of Auckland. On arrival, you’re greeted by a professional guide who takes you on a 25-minute tour of Waiheke Island by minivan. Catch sight of the city skyline from atop Trig Hill, one of the island’s highest points.
Here, check in at the visitor center, receive your safety gear and hear an instructional briefing from an expert zipline guide who offers personalized attention in your small group limited to 12. Head up to a platform where you’re securely attached to the cable by a full-body harness, and begin the first of three 655-foot (200-meter) flights through the forest canopy.
Your zipline adventure starts out gently above a vineyard, but the gradient gradually increases on the following two flights as you zoom across a valley and through the treetops canopy.
Back on firm ground, continue your Waiheke Island excursion with a guided 1-mile (1.5-km) walk on an easy interpretive forest trail back to the visitor center. You’re transferred by minivan to the ferry terminal for the return ferry ride to Auckland’s Pier 2.
Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your timely return to the Auckland cruise port for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Nice people but not much ziplining

First, the people were very nice and worked very hard! But, they only had 3 ziplines and they weren't very long. The eco walk was nice but the attendant walked too fast. My wife and I love ziplining but, unfortunately, we have to say this...More
