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.

This was my husband and I's first time zip lining and it was great! Matt and Brian were great guides, very friendly and patient. There were a few times I got a bit weak in the knees (the tree top to tree top zip and the bridge walk) but I made it through. We would love to go again.

We had a fabulous time on Zip San Juan!!! If you have ever wanted to go on a zip line tour and haven't done it yet, you should definitely work it into your trip to San Juan island. Brian and Matt were a lot of fun. There are several different zips and a suspension bridge to cross. The last Zip... More

Well organized, friendly and safety conscious. The kids and I really enjoyed ourselves. My only thought was that it could have been longer.

My husband, 12 year old son and I decided to go zip lining during our spring break trip to Friday Harbor. My husband and son had both been zip lining before, and loved it. This was my first time, and I was scared! The team at San Juan Zip Lining put my fears to rest. They were extremely helpful, making... More

I didn't think at my age I would ever do this but I am so glad I did. The whole experience was fantastic and I can't wait to do this again. The staff was amazing and very entertaining.

I treated my son to a zip line tour for his birthday. I was scared to death just thinking about it, but decided that it would magnify his experience to make it a family event. He loved it, of course, and so did I, despite my fear of heights. The tour guides made us all feel so comfortable and safe.... More

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
