    Travel with Flexibility!

Your Waiheke Wanderer experience starts as you board your Fullers ferry for a scenic cruise to Waiheke Island.

On arrival, we’ll take you to EcoZip HQ, perched high on a hillside overlooking many of Waiheke’s pretty bays and vineyards. With our expert guides, you’ll fly through the air on our giant dual ziplines, enjoying a unique perspective on an island the NY Times labelled a ‘must-see’. Later, take a leisurely guided walk beneath the cooling canopy of our centuries-old native NZ forest.

Famous for its food, wine, beaches, art and boutique shopping, there’s so much to see and do on Waiheke Island.  Our Waiheke Wanderer package includes Fullers 360’s Explorer hop-on hop-off bus tour, giving you the freedom to visit multiple popular vineyards, beaches and seaside villages full of galleries, shops and cafes – all at your own pace.  Build your own personalised Waiheke sightseeing tour by selecting where to eat, which vineyards to visit, where to shop and on which beach you’ll linger – enjoying Waiheke’s famous microclimate.

Top Tip: Though the Explorer bus stops operating at 7pm, the last ferry from the island leaves after 11pm – so if you’re in no hurry to get back to the city you’re at leisure to linger in to the evening.

  • This was a terrific experience, I screamed all the way down all three zip lines. Would definitely recommend it. Brilliant, thank you.

  • We had not been on a zip wire before this trip. EcoZip staff were very welcoming and very professional. We were well prepared for the zip wires and our guides did a great job making sure we were all set before each run. The walk back to the centre with some information about the local flora and fauna was a great addition. We would thoroughly recommend EcoZip.

  • Wow, that's an amazing day full of discovery and incredible native bush. Loved the zipline! You guys rock.

    Mike McVey Gisborne, NZ
