Give your friends, family, work colleagues or other group a taste of Waiheke with an expert guide. Take a break from work, or bring family and friends for a relaxing few hours in our beautiful island environment.

We will happily customise your itinerary to meet the needs of your group, including fitness levels, interests and other activities you may be doing on the island.

Typically, we will walk from the ferry terminal around the Church Bay Headland, site of the biennial Sculpture on the Gulf exhibition, and through the Forest and Bird Reserve to a spectacular lookout.

You’ll be captivated by beautiful Pohutukawa-fringed coastlines, regenerating native bush, and unforgettable views across the Hauraki Gulf.

Your expert guide will help you learn about the unique flora and fauna, as well as the history and culture, of Waiheke.

Your tour can end at Mudbrick or Cable Bay vineyards, Oneroa Village or the ferry terminal.
