Seattle’s sweetest trip around Lake Union. Climb aboard the Fremont Avenue at Lake Union Park for the Ice Cream Cruise. Every hour on the hour we set out on a 45-minute trip around Seattle’s Lake Union, for a narrated tour of this unique and vibrant waterway.
Eat ice cream, enjoy the views and learn about:
- The birthplace of the Boeing Company
- Turning an old powerplant into a biotech research center
- A shipyard that has been working for over 100 years
- The busiest drawbridge in the world
- Turning an old gas plant into one of Seattle’s favorite parks
- The unique lifestyle in Seattle’s floating home communities
Informal, fun, family friendly and dog friendly. Ice cream is optional, but highly encouraged! Departing on the hour from Lake Union Park, next to the Museum of History and Industry. Click here for directions.
Boarding on Sundays is on a first-come-first-aboard basis, with no reservations or advance tickets. Please form a line behind our sign. Tickets are purchased on board and you can pre-pay for concession items. We accept cash, cards and, of course, gift cards and certificates.
