Our family friendly zip tour features 8 zip lines that will take you through a beautiful forest, across an otter inhabited lake and over protected wetlands. This tour is an amazing way to experience the natural landscape of San Juan Island while zipping from platform to platform through the forest canopy.Upon reaching the site, you will be given an orientation and then have the opportunity to practice zipping on our smaller practice zip lines. After this, our guides will lead you on a brief hike to the first of the zip lines. Throughout your tour you will soar past tall Douglas Firs, Western Red Cedars, and experience the forest and wetlands from a viewpoint usually exclusive to birds.Tours last approximately 3 hours, which includes travel time to and from the course. The Zip San Juan course is approximately 10 minutes from Friday Harbor. Zip San Juan can provide your transportation to and from Friday Harbor to the zip site. « less

Would do it again in a heartbeat. The only downfall is I didn't take my phone or camera so got no pictures, but could have.

It was a little weird being picked up at the Ferry terminal instead of going there directly and parking in a lot...but go with it, it's worth it! The guides are hilarious. They're safety conscious w/o being stick in the mud spazes (Like Canopy Tours NW) and the course is the best in Washington! Before you start, you ride a... More

I highly recommend the zip line. We all loved it; it was exhilarating to fly through the trees and over ponds! SAFTEY This was a big concern. I was with 3 teens, not one of whom had ever ziplined. However, the gear is new and very sturdy. There were 2 instructors for our group of 9 and they were thorough... More

Zip SJI is a good time in a beautiful wooded setting. Shaun (his very last day) and Alex were both very confident and able guides. The harness gear and the zip lines themselves all were very stout, no concern whatsoever. The first two are just training lines ... and they do very god job of instruction. After that, the rest...

My wife and I had a great time. My wife wasn't too sure about it but the guides were great and were able to make it fun for everyone. Definitely worth the time and money.

Having missed the opportunity to do the zlp line attraction at Grouse Mountain earlier in the week, we took advantage of Zip San Juan while visiting a friend who lives in Friday Harbor. What a blast! Matt and Brian were professional yet entertaining, and made everyone feel comfortable. There were 3 in my group and two others on our tour.... More

The guides made it feel so safe. by the 3rd zip I was leaning off the back of the platform like my teenager. My 8 year old said it was the best thing she has ever done. When I booked I think I thought we'd be sailing above the trees. That wasn't the case but it was so fun anyway.... More

We had so much fun zip lining!!! Our guides were very knowledgable about the area. They have fun doing their job which makes it more fun for the guest. We learned so much about San Juan Island all while zipping through the trees and over lakes. A must for a fun afternoon!
