If coming from Downtown Auckland, you will need to catch the 9:30am Fullers ferry to Waiheke Island.  Please arrive at the terminal 20-30 minutes before your ferry departs as ferries fill up quickly and tickets are sold on first in line first served basis. Your tour guide will meet you when you arrive at Matiatia Ferry terminal at 10:05am. If you are already on Waiheke Island just let us know where you're staying and we'll pick you up. 

Your tour will drive you through the main village of Oneroa and past Oneroa beach. Your tour will take the back streets past gorgeous ocean views and stop at Palm Beach where we will take a brief bush walk down to a lovely lookout. You will continue to a local bakery where you can order your coffee in Te Reo Maori and enjoy their delicious pastries.  Your tour will stop at a beach in a Regional Park where the rare Spotted Dotterel bird breeds. 

Your next stop will be for lunch (not included in tour price) at a vineyard high on a hilltop with beautiful views reaching out to Auckland and Rangitoto Island.  Your tour will then make its way to another vineyard for a wine tasting on the remote far eastern side of the island, the drive to the vineyard is breathtaking and there will be opportunities to stop and take photos.  Your tour will then venture to another amazing lookout over the Southern end of Waiheke with views stretching out to The Coromandel and the Bombay Hills.

Pending seasonal availability you may also have the opportunity to feed some local Alpacas by hand, enjoy an Olive Oil tasting, Local Farmers Market, Craft beer tasting or a swim at a local beach.

At the end of your tour your guide will either drop you at the ferry terminal for your ferry back to Auckland or your Waiheke island accommodation or if you wish to spend the last few hours of daylight in Oneroa or at another vineyard enjoying the sunset then it's only a short 15-minute walk to the ferry terminal.

Small groups make for fun and flexibility so you can really get to know your fellow travellers. You will be taken off the beaten track where the big buses can't venture.
