Family boat trips:
1. Zip over to Vashon Island or to West Seattle aboard the King County Water Taxi at Pier 50 on the Seattle Waterfront. At $5.75 per ride (free for kids 5 and under), it’s an inexpensive way to sail away.
3. Cool off with ice cream and other treats on the Seattle Water Tours Ice Cream Sail. You’re certain to feel the breeze on this 45-minute trip around Lake Union. Bonus: Pups are welcome aboard and frozen treats are available for them too!
4. Row, row, row your … peapod? The Center for Wooden Boats offers families the opportunity to cruise around in a wooden boat (called a peapod) on Lake Union for an hour, at no cost. Spots fill fast. Great for beginners. (We tried it, and here’s how it went!)
5. Get ready for some swashbuckling adventure aboard the Emerald City Pirates Family Treasure Cruise. Arrrr matey!
