Darting out from behind a tree, the marksman sidles up behind a barrel before swiftly aiming his Tippmann 98 marker at an unsuspecting opponent crouched beside a stack of firewood. Such are the tactics that Go Big Paintball referees—themselves dedicated paintballers—witness at each bout on the outdoor field. The refs distribute players of all skill sets and experience levels between two teams before sending them off to fire 100% biodegradable paint at one another across more than 21 acres. Between rounds, the indoor facility facilitates reenergizing with air fills and concessions. Go Big also hosts birthday parties and puts together customized packages for groups that want a little more time or ammunition during their adventures.

Outer Island Expeditions' fleet of kayaks and boats safely cruises at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour through frothy crests ebbing amid the striking sights and wildlife of the San Juan islands. Venturing as far as 50 miles into Canadian waters, whale-watching excursions foster personal rapport between patrons and boat-side orcas, gray whales, or humpback whales trying to learn human etiquette for future espionage missions. Tours of Stuart Island's Turn Point lighthouse begin aboard a 22-foot Kodiak skiff, which buoys patrons through 16 miles of waters inhabited by sea lions and porpoises before they disembark and hike to the lighthouse's historical museum. Fishing charters set sail in search of ocean creatures and potable salt water from all of Outer Island Expeditions' four launch points: Smuggler's Villa Resort, Semiahmoo Resort, Lopez Island, and The Willows on Lummi Island.
