Owner description: We offer state-of-the-art flying fox ziplines and an eco-immersive forest walk for nature lovers of all ages. With a complimentary pick up from the island's ferry terminal at Matiatia Wharf, or from Oneroa Village bus stop if you're already on the island, you'll enjoy a "mini-tour" of the island en route to our site on Trig Hill. Upon arrival and welcome at our visitor centre, you will be checked-in, geared up, and readied for one of Auckland's most eco-friendly activities! Three 200m dual flying fox ziplines will fly you smoothly side-by-side with a partner, friend or relative down into a stunning tract of original and regenerating native 'bush' (forest). It's a scenic interpretive walk back to base, where you'll learn about local flora and fauna and the conservation of our spectacular natural environment. With a choice of drop-off locations afterwards, we'll make sure you have plenty of things to do on the island!

“A must for any visitors to Auckland”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

Fantastic day out on Waiheke Island with EcoZip the highlight of the day. Lovely, friendly staff, stunning views out over the harbour back to Auckland as you buzz down and an informative and tranquil walk back up through the spectacular native bush. A must for any visitors to Auckland with a few hours to spare - a great way to get out of the city for something completely different but so close at the same time.

G'day OliviaH - and many thanks for adding your feedback to our Trip Advisor page; as I've said many times before, we really do appreciate our former guests finding time to jot down their thoughts and opinions.

Unsurprisingly we're delighted with your description of EcoZip as “A must for any visitors to Auckland”. Although Waiheke is a short ferry ride from the city we (and we admit we may be just slightly biased) think it is an ideal day trip venue for visitors to Auckland; even those who are tight for time.

Thanks once again for the outstanding feedback and for nominating EcoZip as the highlight of your day on Waiheke.

Warmest best wishes and Happy New Year
Gavin and the EcoZip team

“Zip Zip Hooray!!”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Zips were longer and more exhilarating than I was expecting! Nice to do something a bit different this close to Auckland and the staff were very friendly. Big tick!

“Truly funfilled awsome experience”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Began a beautiful day with a pick up at the wharf including an informative drive to the site. The staff are all very friendly, knowledgeable and safety conscious. The views are incredible and the ride on the fox a great buzz. Highly recommend the EcoZip experience, it is good value and unforgettable with an awsome team of people who truly love their work.

Hi JudeB

Initially please accept my many thanks for taking time out to add your review to our Trip Advisor page. As I've said many times before we really see this feedback as invaluable.

Naturally we're delighted with your comments and feedback. Safety is, of course, our single biggest priority - so it's great to see that reflected in our clients' post-tour comments. Thanks also for the feedback on our 'minitour' wharf-to-EcoZip service, and our team of guides.

Thanks again both for visiting EcoZip and for your wonderful review.
Warmest best wishes and seasons greetings

“Fabulous fun and awesome views”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Highly recommend you do this if you go to Waiheke Island, Had a fantastic time zipping along, and even one of our party who was afraid of heights did it!! So not really scarey at all.... just do it.
The views are to die for off the top of the zip line. Peter and Sarah our caretakers were fantastic. Friendly, helpful, knowledgable, pick you up from ferry...... and to top it off,,, head down to Peacock Sky winery just beside the zipline,,, beautiful wines!

Hi Ann

Let me open, as always, by first offering a word of thanks for taking the time to add your comments and observation to Trip Advisor.

Thanks particularly for singly out my (fantastic) colleagues, Peter and Sarah, in your review. I'm really pleased to hear that any pre-zip nerves were overcome; once you start flying down Vineyard Cruise (or zip 1), it's pretty hard not to become an immediate zipline convert.

I'm also pleased to learn you enjoyed your visit to our neighbours at Peacock Sky vineyard. The island's myriad vineyards, many of which have with excellent restaurants, act to provide yet another good excuse (aside from EcoZip) to visit Waiheke!

Thanks again for this review and to the whole team at Kumeu Physio for visiting EcoZip; it was a great pleasure to spend a couple of hours in your company.

Very best wishes and seasons greetings
Gavin, Sarah, Peter and the entire EcoZip team

“Good fun on Waiheke!”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Had a fun morning out at EcoZip! The zip lines were great, and the staff were excellent. Amazing views of this island paradise await while flying high above the forest canopy. The walk back was very informative and fun as well. Highly recommended!

And first off, many thanks for taking a time out to add your review to Trip Advisor.

It is pretty easy to see, especially at this time of year, why Waiheke is gaining a reputation, as you so accurately put, it as an 'island paradise'. It's part of the reason EcoZip is on the island; to prove you can see beautiful, clean, green, 100% pure, New Zealand only 17km from the country's largest city.

Thanks also the for wonderful feedback on our team and also on the our native bush walk experience.

Thanks again for visiting EcoZip and for adding your review here.

Warmest best wishes and seasons greetings
