Description: Come and experience for yourself the only Zip Line Tour in the San Juan...
Come and experience for yourself the only Zip Line Tour in the San Juan Islands in Washington State. 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.

I was afraid of heights, which is why I wanted to try this. It's the only tour in my area that offers practice lines. That made a big difference in getting me comfortable with zipping. I took to it immediately; loved it, in fact. The rush, the thrill! And surprisingly, I had no fear of heights once up in the... More

Took my daughter of 14 to zip line here. We had both been zipping elsewhere. This was a fun time with a couple of long lines and a couple of short ones. Great for 1st timers.

Was the first time zipping with my kids. It was great! Our guides were fun, knowledgeable and made us feel at ease. Take the family for some island memories in the trees!

this was so much fun! Our guides were awesome. They made sure we were having a good time. Some of the people in our party had reservation problems and the guides made sure the problem was addressed in a positive way.

If you've never tried zipping, this is a good intro course. Instructors were efficient, if not a bit canned (you could tell they've said the same thing a hundred times and delivered instruction on autopilot, and quickly). But they were friendly. Our small party of here was finished in 1 hour and 20 minutes, leaving me feeling that was an... More

My 9 years daughter and I took friends from out of town to visit Friday Harbor. The weather was beautiful so we grabbed reservations the night before to zip line. It was easy to find, the guides were very knowledgeable and the views were great. This was my first time so I think I expected a little bit more but... More

Fun for 8 and older. Great guides. Would recommend this adventure. Different lines to conquer. Swaying bridge that I landed on my bottom (smiles) No problem made it to the other side without having to have the guide rescue me. Another story to tell my kids.

Our guides were Ethan and Haylee and they were a ton of fun. The zipline was a first for me and I enjoyed it a lot. There were 6 different platform stations (+2 practice stations) so just enough to really get a good feel for how fun this is. There were 7 total in our group, all ages, and everyone... More

I've never done a zip line so have no comparison, but this was a blast. Gorgeous scenery as you fly from tree to tree. Professional guides, great equipment. Felt safe.
