Camano Island, located in the beautiful state of Washington, is a large island in the Puget Sound, about an hour north of Seattle.
Beautiful Camano Island is right next to Whidbey Island, and is part of Island County as well.
There’s much to see and do while on Camano.
The Pacific Northwest is a great place for hiking with a number of parks nearby. There are two beautiful state parks on Camano Island, Cama Beach State Park and Camano Island State Park. And there’s the large Deception Pass State Park just off Camano Island on Whidbey Island, but not too far.
All three parks offer beautiful forest trails with tranquil hiking, and shoreline strolls offering birding, shell and rock exploration, and sweeping views of the Puget Sound. Cama Beach also offers a lovely café in the woods, for a nice spot to stop and get a bite to eat.
Right outside of the Kristoferson Farm is a great place to stop for lunch, Rockaway Bar + Grill, which serves delicious Mexican food.
The zipline tour guides
The guide crew is great: funny, professional, and caring.
They make all skill levels and bravery levels feel comfortable and right at home.
All participants get detailed instructions on the gear, the equipment, and what to expect for the tour.
You’ll start the tour with a ride up the hill in a Unimog vehicle, which is a 1963 Swiss Army troop carrier.
Then, you walk up the first platform, and zip your way down the hill!
Everyone gets to zip down, one person at a time, and you wait for all participants and guides to get to each station or platform before moving on to the next one.
There are two beautiful short walks through the forest on groomed trails as part of your experience, the longest being around 5 minutes. The terrain is not difficult.
There’s a rest break with snacks provided at one of the platforms.
There’s a fun suspended log bridge you get to walk across. And, there’s a really cool decent down using a constant velocity device that allows you to float down smoothly to end your experience.
How difficult is it?
This course is designed so that everyone can participate and have fun.
No matter your exercise level or experience, you should be able to enjoy this lovely day out.
The zip lines have been installed so you are slowing down as you approach the end platform. Additionally, they have guide-operated braking systems to assist in bringing you to a nice, controlled stop as you reach the end of the line.
Your guide will help ready for your next zip, and the next adventure.
You simply relax and enjoy the ride.

What should I wear?
Be sure to bring a camera with a strap. The strap will help the guides attach the camera to your gear. This is an experience to remember and photos are a must!
It’s best to wear seasonally appropriate, comfortable clothing that you can you can comfortably wear a harness over. But be sure that your clothing isn’t too loose, as you will be soaring through the trees.
Dark-colored outdoor clothes and closed-toed shoes are recommended, as it can get muddy if it has rained, and you will be walking through the forest.
Wear sunglasses, because whipping through the trees can make high winds uncomfortable on the eyes.
Bring a rain jacket and shoes that will keep your feet dry if there’s a chance of rain or snow. They run the zip lines year-round, even in the snow. So be prepared for the weather.
They will, however cancel events for safety reasons like lightning and high winds.
