See Waiheke Your Way with the Hop-on/Hop-off Explorer

Enjoy Waiheke your way, with full flexibility. You decide how many and which Waiheke wineries you want to visit and how much time you spend in each place. We provide you with a return ferry ticket and a day pass for the Hop-on/hop-off Explorer bus that runs between the most popular wineries on Waiheke Island. 

To make the most of your day, take the 9 am ferry from Auckland. The Hop-on/Hop-off Explorer then runs every 30 minutes (Sat and Sun, or every hour Thu and Fri) and picks up the last guests at 5.20 pm for its last round (this is the 2020/21 schedule). You can choose from 16 stops and the wineries that are dotted along the bus route.
