  • UBC Aqua Society
    Not many people realize that the sea undergoes a radical transformation every night. Those who have taken UBC Aqua Society's night diving course do; they’ve witnessed nocturnal creatures and plants, which are strikingly different than their daytime counterparts, first hand. This night course is just one of 15 different specialty courses offered by UBC Aqua Facility, a non-profit organization that has helped its community explore subaquatic worlds for more than 50 years. In addition to its specialty programs, the facility offers learn-to-dive courses for beginners, as well as rescue classes that prepare students to retrieve people that can't swim or the perfectly good burrito they threw overboard in a regretful fit of rage. Through it all, the business maintains a laid-back, yet professional attitude, evidenced especially by its frequent social gatherings for club members.

  • 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.
