Climb aboard the Fremont Avenue 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.
