Sea Cones Ice Cream Boat in Hall’s Harbour
Disclosure: Our family received an ice cream sundae party in exchange for this blog post. we decided to take one for the team and try it out so we can tell you all about our experience! All opinions are our own.
As soon as you arrive at Sea Cones, you immediately get the feel of a nautical piece of history, steeped in tradition and inspired by its ocean setting. On deck, you’ll be served with our friendly Maritime hospitality.
I think this is the most unique place we have ever eaten ice cream!
Sea Cones Sea Cones is an authentic Nova Scotia fishing vessel, anchored on the mainland; transformed into a full service ice cream parlour.
We had a hard time choosing which sundae we were going to try, because they all sounded so delicious! Owner Bobbie said that they had a great time coming up with all these interesting concoctions!
David ended up with his all-time favourite Coke float
While the boys each went for a “Ship-to-Shore” that included vanilla ice cream, sea salt caramel sauce and a chocolate brownie. You can’t go wrong with that!
I tried the “High-n-Low Tide” sundae with hot fudge and peanut butter sauce with Reeses Pieces!
*Note: always find out what way the wind is blowing so your hair doesn’t go all in the ice cream!*
What immediately drew me to Sea Cones Ice Cream Boat is that they have special treats for dogs! This was one of our main reasons for coming here.
After having left our dog for 5 months when we moved to the UK, we wanted to take her somewhere special. Besides, she’s 14 and we’re not sure if we’ll have another summer with her, so we wanted to spoil her rotten with the “Paw-Toon Doggie Bowl”. And, $1 from every dog treat goes towards an animal shelter!
Gracie was a huge fan!
Besides the ice cream, the treat came with an all-natural doggie treat, too!
Besides the novelty of the ice cream boat, there is also a playground for children under 8.
And lots of places to sit, including a table with some pretty cool tractor seats.
If you are hungry for more than just ice cream, there is a snack shack open from Thursdays to Sundays.
