At ZipGuam, safety is our top prioritysafe

SAFETY INFORMATION
We have the highest safety standards in the industry.
Although many tours say they’re safe, few can tell you exactly what they do to make it so, but we can!

  • We only use internationally-certified, superior-quality materials, components and equipmen,t and we use conservative equipment and element capacity limits. We inspect our equipment and tour elements incessantly and document every detail.
  • Our double-line traverses and comprehensive safety line systems for guests and personnel on all high platforms provide unsurpassed risk reduction.
  • We use a time-tested operations system that incorporates internationally-recognized  high angle techniques proven effective for risk management in the high adventure tour. 
  • Since personnel are the heart of the operation, our training program is the most comprehensive in existence. Guides receive extensive instruction and practice so they can not only operate the tour professionally but have the knowledge to prevent problems and the skills to respond to emergencies effectively.
  • We are committed to the safe operation of the tour – safety doesn’t come cheaply and we spare no expense to ensure your experience is a risk-free as possible.
  • As for most adventurous activities, participants must sign a waiver prior to doing the tour and are at their own risk and responsibility. 

    Our highly-trained guides help you use special equipment and techniques to experience this amazing wilderness from a unique perspective. Feel the rush of adrenalin as you WHOOSH over six zip lines above a canopy of trees with a birds-eye view of the pristine ocean and Tumon Bay. Enjoy a classic canopy tour with stunning views and thrilling rides while you experience natural beauty surrounding you.

TRAINING SYSTEM

Elements – Safety and Environmental Responsibility Through Technology
Building a high adventure tour, whether a canopy tour, zipline or rappel adventure, that harmonizes with the natural environment, requires a unique perspective and a combination of engineering, art and technology. Our lightweight, modular design allows us to build anywhere and leave little or no footprint when elements are removed and we ensure natural features are protected and preserved throughout construction and operation.  

Operations System – Proven Effective
The Operations System is unique to the industry. Based on more than a decade of experience in high adventure tour operations, our manual provides recommendations, policies and procedures and even paperwork needed to operate efficiently from day one.

Training – Meticulous and Exhaustive
Our training program is by far the most complete course available for high adventure tour operators and emphasizes exceptional guest service, mishap prevention and sustainable operations. We provide 250 hours of instruction in tour operations plus a supervised apprenticeship period. We also provide refresher, upgrade and specialty courses in areas such as guest service, element maintenance or risk management.

Tour Development -Extensive Experience
With experience in the ground-up development of more than a dozen tours internationally, the team is fluent in every aspect of project development and we’ll guide you step-by-step through the process of creating a spectacular attraction that meets vision and operational goals.

Support Services - Ongoing and Comprehensive
Since we not only design and build high adventure tours but also have extensive experience in operations, we know what it takes to keep a canopy tour, zipline or rappel adventure operating successfully over the long term. We provide ongoing support services including training, inspections and maintenance, manuals and documentation, equipment and operational supplies, and of course, advice and recommendations whenever needed.
