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.

As GuidesGuru has pointed out the runs here are short. They cruise through the Douglas Firs at a sedate speed making this attractive to younger and older alike. The last run crosses a lake which is the best part. Guides were knowlegeable and friendly and VERY safety conscious.

Thought it would be a fun thing to do to spend time at Friday Harbor. Van picks you up and its about a 15 min ride to the facility in the woods. Decent activity but the runs are not extraordinarily long or high. The guides were pleasant but a tad strange. I have zipped before in better spots, but my... More

Our guides Laura and Ethan were professional, fun and knowledgeable. I was apprehensive since this was my first time to do a zip line. They were patient, kept making sure that we were having a good time,and growing in our comfort. I must say this was far more than I imagined in sheer fun. We had a group of 8... More

We came here today and it was super fun. Our guides were Lara and Brian. They were really awesome and made it very enjoyable. We only wish there were a lot more ziplines to do because we were having so much fun.

Traveling through the treetops with my 10 year old was great fun. Staff made the experience feel very safe, and progressively more exciting zips!

San Juan Zipline was excellent. They picked us up on time, provided great instruction and generally showed us a good time. The zip course is a lot of fun. Watch out for the suspension bridge. Highly recommended.

Went a couple of days ago with my husband and had a great experience! The guides Lara and Ethan made us feel very safe and comfortable doing the ziplines. There's a practice one before the real ones that help a lot. It's the best tour in San Juan Island.
