Captain Dan Green began Fishin Addiction Charters to share his passion and knowledge of the picturesque shoreline and bounteous sea meats of Galveston's waters. Recently joined by deckhand-turned-captain Shane Cantrell, the duo voyages to all crannies and depths that the local seas have to offer, seeking more than a dozen species while specifically targeting tuna, sharks, and the ever-elusive holy mackerel. In their ocean-bound quests, the captains employ four boats that sport names such as The Fountain or The Whaler. Tours last anywhere from four hours to a full day and venture out one to as many as 60 miles from dry land, but are seldom more than 10 miles from the nearest underwater taco stand.
A Tony and Emmy award-winner, Jackie Mason has been tickling ribs via stage, screen, and stereo for more than 40 years.

As twilight falls over the battlefield, the inflatable bunkers and forts starting to fade in the darkness; the soldiers don't relent. The field's lights come on, suddenly illuminating the flat bermuda grass, and snipers continue battering their opponents. At Galveston Island Paintball, referees oversee skirmishes at two venues—the aforementioned X-ball field, which staffers reorganize on a monthly basis, or a rec-ball arena equipped with forts and spools. Catering to all levels of players, weekend drop-in sessions host a variety of action-packed scenarios as spectators watch from afar, supporting the war effort by drawing posters of old men angrily pointing at things. Outside the battles, an onsite shop equips with brand-name gear and occasional two-day clinics impart tips for safety, equipment maintenance, and playing fairly.
Artist Boat promotes awareness and helps preserve coastal margins and marine environments. The public kayak adventure, a four-hour journey of wildlife discovery and ecosystem exploration, allows sailors to immerse themselves in the beauty of Galveston without wearing high-definition sunglasses. During the rest stop, tour-goers create a watercolor painting of their surroundings. The guided tours travel to nine different locations, including the wetlandy and heron-laden East Beach Lagoon, the long, channelized bayou of Clear Creek, and Smith Point, which leads to one of largest oyster fisheries on the Gulf coast. No previous kayaking experience is necessary, and all gear is included in the adventure package (bring only a water-defiant pair of shoes and clothes they won't mind getting wet). Before embarking on the wetland wandering, each group will receive free paddling and safety instructions, ensuring each explorer is aware of all emergency exits.
