Water to Wine  Tour

Experience the WHOLE of Waiheke, by sea and land! Start the morning exploring our spectacular coastline with a guided snorkelling tour, followed by a relaxed afternoon off the beaten track, visiting vineyards located down the rugged Eastern End of Waiheke.


Venture over to Waiheke Island and make your own way via local bus or taxi to Waiheke Dive and Snorkel in Oneroa, where you will take part in their PADI Discover Snorkelling Experience – A great way to explore the Waiheke coastline using a mask and snorkel! All your gear is included, so that's your mask, snorkel & wetsuit.


Just imagine - you put your face in the water and see all the marine life. There's fish swimming, starfish making their way across the rocks and crabs darting in and out of their hiding holes.


After your snorkelling you will be picked up by Ananda Tours to discover some of Waiheke's 'off the beaten track' vineyards located amongst the rugged and beautiful landscape found at the Eastern End of Waiheke.


The tour includes tastings at three boutique vineyards, a micro-brewery and an excellent platter lunch.


If you would like to linger a little longer on the island, we can arrange a dinner booking at a venue of your choice or drop off into Oneroa Village and enjoy the evening at leisure.
