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.

This was our first time going on a zipline excursion and we had a blast. The guides were very professional, but fun. They did a great job of properly fitting our equipment and providing thorough instruction to ensure a safe experience. I recommend adding this activity to your itinerary when visiting San Juan Island.

Excellent guides (Lara and Ian), dedicated to safety and fun. They kept it light and just right for our 9-person party over the pond and through the woods. There's one ladder climb but other than that not physically taxing. Do it!

The zip lines were fun and since we did it on July 4th , there were only 3 people in our group. So got to finish all the 8 zip lines in 1 hr and 20 minutes. Overall a great experience.

My teenaged son and I did a 5 pm zip one afternoon. We had previously zipped in Costa Rica so we knew to temper the thrill factor. The highest zip is about 100 feet max above the ground but the forest scenery and ponds were great to see. Our guides were Brian and Ian and both were personable and helpful.... More

We had been zip lining a couple times before, and while this was fun, it wasn't thrilling, unique, or worth the money. The trip was definitely on the expensive side, and we wouldn't pay that much to do it again. The guides were enjoyable and seemed good at their job.
