After landing at EcoZip Adventures’ on-site helipad you’ll be checked-in and geared-up for one of Auckland’s most thrilling adventures. Three dual ziplines, each over 220m long, will allow you and a friend to fly side-by-side over a working vineyard and then down in to a stunning swathe of native New Zealand forest. Less scary than a bungee jump but with enough adrenalin to get you smiling ear-to-ear, ziplining is adventure tourism for everyone.
No experience is necessary to enjoy the thrill of Ziplining and throughout your EcoZip experience you’ll be accompanied by EcoZip’s professional guides. EcoZip Adventures’ zipline and native forest experience provides the perfect way to see beautiful Waiheke Island from a totally new perspective!

All venues on Waiheke have high demand for landing slots and table bookings especially in the peak season. It is best to book well in advance, and if you only have one date that you would like to fly, please enquire before purchasing, as we may need to suggest a different restaurant or time of day depending on availability.
This Heli Me experience departs from our City Heliport at Mechanics Bay in Auckland City. Other departure locations such as Auckland Airport, Ardmore Airport and North Shore Airport are available but may incur an additional charge. Please contact us for pricing.
Passenger Weight and Aircraft Occupancy
Unlike large airliner aircraft individual passenger weight is critical for a helicopter. For a full helicopter the average passenger weight must generally be 80-85kg or below. There is also a maximum individual seat limit of 125kg. Heavier loads can sometimes be carried but it depends on the distribution of weight. Please let us know passenger weights at the time of booking.
Each helicopter has a maximum occupancy equal to the number of seats. Infants may be carried on an adult's lap but are counted towards the total occupancy, so by law a spare seat must be kept for any children carried on a lap.
On shared scenic flights, passengers over 100kg may require an additional comfort seat to be purchased.
In the event that the weather is unsuitable on the day then your experience will be cancelled and rescheduled at no cost to you. When booking please provide us with suitable contact information so we can get hold of you on the day in the event of a cancellation. We suggest you call on the morning of your experience if you have any doubt about the weather suitability.
