Whilst your cruise ship is berthed in Auckland, this shore excursion provides an opportunity to both enjoy the sights of Auckland from Waitemata Harbour which includes a return ferry crossing to discover a hidden gem in the city of sails, Waiheke Island. On arriving on Waiheke Island enjoy a guided tour of the Island, three separate Zip Line experiences and a guided forest walk through pristine pre-European native forest.
11.00am: The tour starts with a 40-minute ferry crossing of Waitemata Harbour with Fullers Ferries. On your arrival at Matiatia Ferry Terminal on Waiheke Island you will be met by staff from Eco Zip Lines and taken on a 20-minute highlight tour of the island. This mini tour will provide you with some magnificent views from the island back over Waitemata Harbour to Auckland City.
12.15pm: Arriving at Eco Zip Lines, you will have the opportunity to experience three dual zip line rides. You will take to the skies on these unique ziplines, with each being over 200m long. Dual cables allow you to fly side-by-side a friend in an exceptional shared experience. Take a phone or camera to experience Waiheke Island from an amazing perspective.
Descending from Kurinui’s landing deck, you’ll embark on a magical guided nature walk – exchanging your birds-eye forest view for the cool, sun-dappled, rainforest floor. The native forest is home to a diverse range of fauna, including beautiful geckos and skinks, weta, eels, freshwater crayfish and even glow-worms.
2.25pm: At the conclusion of the forest walk you will be transported back to the ferry terminal for your return journey to Auckland City and your cruise ship.
