What to Expect
Make your own way to the Waiheke Ferry Terminal, a short ferry ride from Auckland, where your driver is waiting for you. Transfer by air-conditioned minivan to the zipline departure point, where you are met by your instructor and the rest of your group. After a safety briefing and demonstration, strap on your harness and climb up to the treetop platform. Tackle a course of three high-speed ziplines, soaring high over the forested valleys and vineyards below, and enjoying spectacular aerial views over the island. Back on solid ground, follow a short, scenic trail back to the starting point. At the end of the tour, you are dropped back at the ferry terminal to catch your ferry back to Auckland.

The Magnificent Murupara Maidens all met teaching in Murupara in the 1970s. Every year one of us is Entertainment Officer and we have a weekend together. This year Jeannie was our Entertainment Officer Extraordinaire as she chose Waiheke Island and the zip line. From start to

Hi Annie and the Magnificent Murupara Maidens Where do I start? What a review! Naturally Zeno and Sam are going to be beaming when they read this, as I am now. I'm glad that Jeannie's choice of adventure ticked all the right boxes for the Maidens. I'm also glad to read that when a little pick-me-up was needed it was dispatched quickly. Thanks for visiting Waiheke Island and EcoZip. I hope the Magnificent Murupara Maidens adventure next year, wherever it might be, is even better still! Warmest best wishes Gavin, Zeno, Sam and the team at EcoZip

I cannot recommend EcoZip highly enough. It was great fun for both kids and adults. Our guides - Sam and Kayla - were fantastic, they really made such a good experience with their kind friendly approach and their great commentary on the short bush walk back afterwards. The whole

Kia ora and thanks for your great review of EcoZip and for the feedback on my colleagues Sam and Kayla - who will be over the moon with this praise! Thanks also for the really positive, and useful, feedback on our approach to younger zipliners - we try to make sure there's something for everyone in the EcoZip experience and regardless of their age. Thanks again and very best wishes Gavin, Kayla, Sam and the whole team

Michael was such a great guide. Knowledgeable, entertaining, and funny. My kids laughed even harder than I did. The zipline was exciting and safe. The photo ops were awesome. The hike back through the forest was also great. So glad we made time to do it.

Hi Matt Thanks for this wonderful review of your time at EcoZip. I know Mike will be smiling from eat-to-ear at your feedback. One of the greatest things about being involved in the EcoZip business is the laughter, which sometimes is so loud it stops me doing whatever I'm doing (like reading our Trip Advisor reviews) and causes me to break out laughing too! Feedback really is much appreciated and I'm delighted you and your kids enjoyed your time with us. Warm best wishes Gavin, Michael and the team on Trig Hill

Great time on Waiheke. Took the ferry over early in the day to explore the island. Returned to the ferry terminal in time for the tour. Zip lining was fun. Small group, which meant we weren’t spending a lot of time waiting around. At the end, there was a nature walk back up to

Kia ora from Waiheke! Thanks for adding your feedback to Trip Advisor and for declaring EcoZip a 'must visit' -we really do appreciate this. We keep our groups small to ensure the experience stays very personal, plus we can then set a leisurely pace to the whole experience particularly the wander through our beautiful forest. Thanks again for adding your review All the best Gavin and the team at EcoZip

It was awesome. Very friendly staff and very knowledgeable in the native plants, animals and culture. We went down 3 lines, with the best for the last! Safety and fun were their 2 main areas of focus! Thanks EcoZip!

Hi Valerier Thanks for adding this review to Trip Advisor. Our clients' safety and enjoyment are our top two priorities, so I'm pleased to know I work with a brilliantly quirky mob of safety-obsessed customer service-fanatics! Thanks again for the review and for visiting EcoZip All the best Gavin and the EcoZip team
