Embark on a Waiheke Island wine tour including a round-trip ferry ride across the Hauraki Gulf from Auckland. You’ll visit three vineyards on the picturesque island with a driver-guide who is knowledgeable about Waiheke’s acclaimed artisan wines. Enjoy tastings at Mudbrick Vineyard, Cable Bay and Te Whau Vineyard, with complimentary light snacks at one venue. Use the included all-day bus pass to explore Waiheke Island further on your own.
What to Expect
With an ideal micro-climate for producing some of New Zealand’s most celebrated artisan wines, Waiheke Island boats plentiful vineyards among seaside villages and beaches surrounded by lavender fields, family farms and forests. 

After making your way to the Auckland ferry terminal, take in the idyllic views as you cross the Hauraki Gulf on a 40-minute ride to Waiheke Island, located less than 12 miles (19 km) away. On arrival, you’re picked up by coach for a half-day tour of three vineyards. 

Be escorted to Mudbrick Vineyard for your first wine tasting among lovely gardens overlooking the gulf. Cable Bay is your next stop. Savor a selection of their premium estate wines accompanied by light appetizers. Then taste an award-winning selection at Te Whau Vineyard, where you’ll get an overview of winemaking from the experts.

When your wine-tasting tour ends, you can either return to the wharf via your coach for the late-afternoon ferry back to Auckland, or linger on to explore Waiheke further on your own, using your complimentary All Day Bus Pass. Ferries to Auckland run until late in the evening; check the schedule for details.

A Great Place, Not the Tour I would have picked

We were picked up at the ferry wharf by one of the larger tour buses for a tour group of 28. It was loud at times and some other visitors were obnoxious, and I wasn't able to ask questions or talk with others at times....More
