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 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.

We've been ziplining before and we found this one exceptional. We zipped with Tim and Ivan and they helped make it lots of fun. There were several zip lines plus a suspension bridge and platforms high in the trees. Overall a terrific couple of hours. Zip on!

This was a great family activity. Our guides, Hunter and Sophie, were focused on safety but also on having fun. They told the group if any one felt uncomfortable doing any of the lines they could skip that one.

At no point did any of us feel unsafe. I would recommend this for... More

I was a bit nervous since I am afraid of heights...but not any more. Except for one in our party, this was the first time any of us had ever been zip lining. Tim, Eli and Lara were great!!!! They were fun, respectful of safety measures and instilled a huge confidence...you can do it. What I appreciated the most was... More

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!

Everything about this company and our experience was great! My husband and I were had a fabulous time with guides Lara and Ivan. We were extra fortunate because there were no other people on our tour so it was just us and the guides. Our guides were personable and made the experience a lot of fun. You can tell they... More
