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.

I too, my 9-year-old daughter this time, and my other daughter when she was 9. They both loved it. The staff were great both times. My daughter was a bit nervous this time before we went, but was fine once we got there and wanted to go again. We were the only ones and it was great.

I had a great time on my first zipline experience. The staff members at San Juan Island Zip Tours were professional and offered good humored encouragement all along the way.

This is the only zip lining on the islands, so we thought it would be fun to do. We have been several times in other locations, so we knew what to expect. The guides were very helpful and knew their jobs well. We were a bit surprised to see that there was not any form of building where their 'office'... More

This was a fun experience for our family. The zip lines were not very long. I would say this is more for a first time zip liner or smaller children. This is nothing compared to much higher longer zip lines in Costa Rica and like locations.
