7 wild summer activities to enjoy in and around Seattle

Jun 22 2021, 4:07 pm

Last summer was for lounging on the beach in isolation, riding your bike everywhere, and digging into the books.

This summer, vaxxed girl summer, is all about getting wild.

We don’t mean going to loud and bursting parties, we mean finally revisiting all of the fun activities that were locked shut this year.

Here are seven wild activities to enjoy this summer in Seattle:

Rent a jet ski

Rent a jet ski with Waterfront Adventures. If you’ve never gone out on water before, the staff will teach you everything you need to know. There are also dock attendants who will make sure your arrival and departure back on land are as smooth as possible.

Fly high into the Snohomish skies and jump out of a plane with Skydive Snohomish. If you’re too scared, get pushed out of a plane. Either way, you’re getting out of that plane.

Start bouldering

While we don’t recommend getting straight out to the cliffs which overlook the waters, we do recommend starting out in a gym. How is this activity wild, you ask? Well, once you get good you can swap the gym for a real rock face — now that’s wild.
