  • Outer Island Expeditions
    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. Fishing is the only sport where you're allowed to consume your opponent, not counting baseball before 1971. Catch a bite with this Groupon. Morning and afternoon [trips](http://www.outerislandx.com/CharterFishing.php) depart from [Orcas Island](http://gr.pn/wERLBM) and run for about 3–6 hours. Admission pricing is per person, but each boat holds up to 6 people. Salmon fishing trips—held now until April 30, and July 1 until October 15—require the most patience, as catching silver and king salmon can be a waiting game. But fisherman of all levels—including children as young as 4—can easily snag a fish during bottom-fishing trips, which run from May 1 until June 30. All necessary gear is provided.

  • Orcas Island Golf Course
    Half a century ago, Orcas Island Golf Course was carved out of a 54-acre estate homestead from the 1800s, rendering a nine-hole course whose contours take advantage of the area’s gently rolling hills and natural water hazards. When developers began salivating over the scenic stretch of land five years ago, local contractor and golfer Kendall Taylor swooped in and saved the course from being transformed into a holding facility for wayward cereal-box mascots, and he has maintained it through the present day with the help of his wife and children. Covered in astoria bent grass, the course boasts a bucolic atmosphere that echoes the traditional fairways and greens of Scotland. Golfers can tackle the course from a choice of four tee stations, looping through twice for a satisfying 18-hole journey, or hone their skills at a driving range. Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole course * Length of 3,010 yards * Course rating of 67.8 * Slope rating of 115 * Four tee options * Link to scorecard
