Fire, according Combustible Materials' Abby Adore, was the first kid in class to pull humanity off the bleachers and ask her to dance. It is an image that Abby, a professional fire dancer, embodies when she spins her poi—essentially, a ball of Kevlar engulfed with flame and attached to the end of a chain—into a geometric flurry of lines and planes. Dancing with fire, she says, is the most primal way to connect with the most powerful yet attractive of elements. However, doing so, she admits, can be a little scary. Beginner students are often wary of the idea of willingly surrounding themselves with flames. "In the movies, if someone touches fire, then they instantly explode. Unfortunately it's not true," she bemoans. "Otherwise we'd have better pictures." Instead of living some Hollywood special-effects fantasy, Combustible Materials' students safely learn the art of fire dancing. During hands-on classes, they practice fluid movements, not unlike those in yoga or jogging across an expressway, and they rehearse framing their bodies in the flickering light. For first-time burners, one of the biggest surprises is its sound. "It is really loud inside a wall of fire," Abby confirms. "A whooshing sound, especially at the beginning [of the burn] when the fire is bigger and has more fuel." Over time, students can progress from the poi or staff tools to other tools such as a fan, a hoop, a double staff, or a palm torch. Though ultimately, as students progress with advanced choreography or add another notch to their tool belt, the entire undertaking comes down to fire. As Abby sums up, "It's all about the fire."

Out in the Bell Harbor Marina, kayakers sit at the intersection between society and nature. On one side: Seattle's gleaming skyline and unencumbered views of the shore. On the other: the Puget Sound, where a few paddles can take you past the natural habitats of seals, nesting bald eagles, and other wildlife. Those are just a few of the destinations frequented by Alki Kayak Tours. Their signature Downtown Seattle sea-kayak tour charts a course from Bell Harbor Marina along the Seattle waterfront, then off to the wildlife areas of Elliott Bay. Other voyages pass by Alki Lighthouse and float beneath the light of a full moon.

Alki Kayak Tours' team also leads standup-paddleboard tours and rents fishing boats, longboards, and other gear. Whatever the activity, Alki Kayak Tours provides everything necessary, save for a water bottle to stay hydrated and a sense of adventure that doesn't dissolve in water.

Surrounded on every side by the city's urban landscape, Lake Union affords a unique vantage point from which to see the Seattle skyline. The captains of Lake Union Charters and Adventures take advantage of this view by chartering adventures aboard the Solana, a sailing sloop outfitted with a full galley, icebox, and bathroom. Sailing adventures range from sunset cruises to girls' night out sails, as well as sailing lessons that give students hands-on experience in tacking, jibing, and whittling a peg leg. For an elevated experience, the captains also sweep passengers off on dinner cruises aboard the schooner Lavengro, a historic, 63-foot wooden vessel first launched in 1926 and named after George Borrow's novel Lavengro: The Scholar, the Gypsy, the Priest.
