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

My wife and I had a great time. My wife wasn't too sure about it but the guides were great and were able to make it fun for everyone. Definitely worth the time and money.

Having missed the opportunity to do the zlp line attraction at Grouse Mountain earlier in the week, we took advantage of Zip San Juan while visiting a friend who lives in Friday Harbor. What a blast! Matt and Brian were professional yet entertaining, and made everyone feel comfortable. There were 3 in my group and two others on our tour.... More

The guides made it feel so safe. by the 3rd zip I was leaning off the back of the platform like my teenager. My 8 year old said it was the best thing she has ever done. When I booked I think I thought we'd be sailing above the trees. That wasn't the case but it was so fun anyway.... More

We had so much fun zip lining!!! Our guides were very knowledgable about the area. They have fun doing their job which makes it more fun for the guest. We learned so much about San Juan Island all while zipping through the trees and over lakes. A must for a fun afternoon!

Brian and Ethan were great fun...(and nice enough to wait a few extra minutes for us to make it to the initial rendezvous point! Sorry guys!) Great views from the lines...loved that you could see no signs of civilization from them at all. And the guides were great, safe and encouraging to those that were nervous. Ethan, your jokes though...those... More

This was a fun endeavor for everyone in our group. I hate heights but the guides (Brian and Ethan) Made it easy to go on the lines without being terrified of dying.

I took my daughter and 3 grandchildren ziplining with Zip San Juan. Our guides were Brian and Ethan. They made the adventure fun and they never made us feel unsafe. Their #1 priority. They were also amusing (Ethan with his jokes) Go. You will have fun.

Gave it a very good rating-rather than excellent-because my teenage daughter would have liked a longer course and higher zip lines. It was great for me, after a traumatic experience on a zip line in Costa Rica, I appreciated the 8 zips which gave me confidence and by the end I was having fun. Ethan, one of our guides, was...

Great day celebrating our daughters 15th BD. The staff was excellent. I was a little nervous since I have never Zip lined and have a little fear of height. The staff were very professional and I felt safe and didn't worry-- cant wait to go again!
