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

This was a great time for our family. The kids really enjoyed it and our guides (Alex & Mike) made the tour very enjoyable by keeping it fun and lively.

The guides were great. Very helpful for us newbies to zip lines. A little scarey at times, but that made it all the more fun to accomplish the task. Would recommend it to anyone visiting San Juan.

From start to finish this was so much fun! Our guides Matt and Ethan made us feel safe and secure and they were great to hang out with. We were able to practice on two barely off the ground zip lines at camp before we headed out which was very helpful. We felt extremely comfortable and yet each zip line... More

We had a little mix up with the pick up location at first. (They now meet at the court house.) We received an old email, but after learning where to go from a parking attendant, I can say this was an extremely enjoyable experience. Me and my friend were lucky enough to be the only two who booked a morning... More

Our first trip to San Juan islands had to include something fun for our teen kids. Kayaking and good eating was a given on the island, but wanting even more family "adventure" we set out on Zip San Juan. Website was so easy to navigate and reserve exactly the date/time that worked for us. Complete instructions by email really helped... More

What a fantastic way to spend 3 hours in Friday Harbor! Our group of 4 women (one 30 year old, the others in their late 50s and early 60s) had the best time with Matt and Sherry at Zip San Juan. We also had 3 young people join our group - all of us first time zippers. Matt and Sherry... More

We had so much fun. The small group size makes the experience very enjoyable. Our guides were great and very focused on both safety and fun. Within the fist few minutes they knew everyone's name. The included shuttle from Friday Harbor makes this a very convenient trip even without a car.

This group is very well run. The guides are well trained, personable, social, and very professional. A great experience for families, couples, older, younger, almost everyone (within the limits they specify). They made it very fun for the little kids, the parents, and the grandparents in attendance. We definitely recommend this attraction!

This was our first time zip lining and it was a perfect experience. The guides (Sean and Mike) were great - very knowledgeable, thorough and fun. They explained everything clearly and without being condescending. The actual zip lining is VERY fun and the scenery is breathtaking. I can't wait to go again!

Great experience for me and my two children (12 & 14). Our guides - Josh and Alex were awesome. They were friendly and fun while still being very thorough and making everyone feel comfortable and safe.
