Take in the scenic highlights of Waiheke Island on a 3-hour tour from Auckland. Enjoy a relaxing ferry ride to the island then meet your coach for an informative and lively tour. Known for amazing beaches, delicious food, breathtaking city views, and some of New Zealand's best wines, Waiheke is a must-see destination from Auckland.

Catch your ferry at downtown Auckland’s ferry terminal and relax on the 40-minute trip to Waiheke, an idyllic island with a Mediterranean climate. Loaded with farms, forests, vineyards, olive groves, beaches and seaside villages, and located less than 12 miles (19km) from Auckland, Waiheke provides a great escape from the busy city.

When you arrive, you will be welcomed by your tour driver to embark on a scenic ride by coach around the island. Your local driver will share lively and informative commentary as you cruise along, giving you a taste of the culture and history of Waiheke. You’ll cover a lot of the island in 1.5 hours, and enjoy fantastic views over the Hauraki Gulf.

Once a sleepy backwater, Waiheke gained a reputation for being a hippie haven in the 1960s. The first vineyard was established in the late 1970s, starting what is now a bustling artisan wine industry on the island. Today, millionaires and hippies alike call the island home, enjoying the island’s laid-back atmosphere, protected environment, lovely beaches and magnificent scenery. An abundance of wineries, cafes, restaurants, art galleries and small shops provide plenty of options for visitors.

At the end of the tour, you can opt to return to the wharf to catch the ferry back to Auckland, or you can spend more time on Waiheke and return at your leisure. You’ll be able to further explore Waiheke’s charms with a complimentary all day bus pass to use on the island’s public buses. Return ferries run until late on most evenings; check the schedule for exact details.
