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.

This was a blast. Thanks to Ivan and Sophie, they made me feel so comfortable. This was my first zip line and did this to help my fear of heights. I will do this again next time I'm back!!

Great guides and a fun way to spend a few hours on San Juan island. It is awesome to just walk on a ferry and get to Friday Harbor and they pick you up and take you to the Zip area, very easy access. I wish there was a few more zips and higher up but I also am not... More

This was a great adventure for our twin 11year olds. It was also a great introduction with a less intimidating feel than previously explored zip lines. It took about an hour and a half total with 6 various lines through the woods. They begin with a very low zip line from platform to platform. It's perfect for young kids to... More

Our family had a great time. The tour guides Lara and Kylie were awesome! The area of the zip lines was beautiful. Our whole family enjoyed zip lining (ages 8-45). We highly recommend this for families.

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.
