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

Even with my fear of heights, I felt safe all the time. Brian and Matt were very friendly and reassuring, and ensured everyone was safe but still having a lot of fun. The tour took us about 2 hours from Roche harbor. There were about 6 zip lines with varying levels of height, length and 'scariness', and they were designed... More

The guides..... They constantly had their eyes on our safety, while making things fun AND encouraging past our comfort zone, knowing we would be glad for the experience. It was nice to know that they would carry you down from anything you couldn't handle...but they are so positive and encouraging, fun-loving and safety conscience, that I'm sure it is rare... More

We tried to contact them for a ride. They do not have any office at site or in town where we can meet their agents. It seems that they need orders only on the internet but will not return phone calls. They should improve their services so that people can use them.

I've done zip lines before. This was very, very well organized and strong on safety. All ages will enjoy. Only one hour from San Juan (45 minutes from the airport) and easy to get to. The staff was very cordial and careful. It's 90 minutes well spent.

Would highly recommend the Roche Harbor side of the island. It was very serine and relaxing. Loved the Sculpture Park. We also visited the English Camp and Lime Kiln Point State Park.

The two comedian / tour guides who run Zip San Juan were professional to a T, and I had a great zip-line tour. If I could afford it, I'd just do the course over and over and over once I had the initial training. Ace and Matt were so easy-going and intuitive that I had no problem adapting to the... More

Safety and quality clearly #1. An excellent orientation and then two practice practice zip lines. 5 minute hike to the first high... More

I'm scared of heights and not a super daredevil, but this was just exhilarating. I can't wait to go again. Guides were fun and knowledgable and I always felt very safe.

My husband and I had been thinking about trying a similar adventure for quite awhile and we are so glad that our first experience was with Zip San Juan. Josh and Brian were great about reminding us what we needed to do without treating us like 4 year olds. It was a bit out of our comfort zone sometimes, but... More
