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.

Our family of 4, two 50 somethings, our 20 and 14 year old daughters had a great time with this company. The two guides, Ethan and TJ, were very professional and fun. They had a detailed safety routine that made us feel safe throughout the tour but also great senses of humor that kept it fun at all times.

Family of four met with another adult couple for the van ride up to the woods. Met another adult couple there. My wife was the only one in our family that had ever done anything similar, so it was a bit daunting for the rest of us. Especially me. Fear of heights, you know. Our guides, Brian and Alex (I...

Amazing zip line experience on the beautiful San Juan island. Our instructors were Matt and Ethan. They were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We were new to zip lining and they made us feel so comfortable. All the zip lines are beautiful. I specially liked the last line where we zip over a small lake. The suspension bridge was a bit...

Took the whole family (including in-laws) twice to this place. These guys go with you, unlike other zip lines I've too, and are a riot to be with. We will definitely return to Zip San Juan.

We did a 10a zip with Zip San Juan in late June 2015. Our guides picked us up in Friday Harbor, drove us to the zip area, and gave us some commentary on the way about the surrounding area (including the resident camel). The ride there wasn't too bumpy in the van, like other trips we've been on. The only... More

The guides love zip lining so much, Ethan and Laura, it made it even more fun for us. Even though we've zipped before, they still made sure with a practice run before starting. We felt very safe and had a blast!

Zip San Juan was a pretty good time. We came from pretty far away so the long trip took a little out of it but the actual zipping was pretty fun. I would recommend it if you are in the area. Seemed really safe, maybe even a little overkill but I understand why they have to be.

Excellent zip line adventure in every way ~ nice variety in height, location of lines and good value for price, Terrific tour guides (Sophie and Halee) were very personable and fun but also very safety conscious.

We were here with a group of 7, plus 3 more that went in the next group. Our guides (sorry I forgot their names!) were great at what they did, patient, informative and very careful/safety conscious. Our group had all been ziplining before, the group of 3 in the next group had not. All 10 of us enjoyed the experience!... More
