Nice relaxing ferry ride. The grounds of the village are nice and there a few camping spots. You are greeted with fresh clams and the shells are tossed on the ground which is pretty cool. The show left a lot to be desired. The seating are long tables, leaving some with views around beams in the middle of the room.... More

As part of a conference we were attending in Seattle, we were taken to Tillicum Village for dinner and a show. We learned that this was a special show since the season would not officially start until the following weekend, so it was actually a dry run for the young adults who work there - preparing the food, serving, and...

We took my sister and her husband who were visiting us, as a special treat. Trip out was very fun. Food was delicious and was an enjoyable experience. We had been looking forward to th Native American dances and program. We were so disappointed in the dance. They were performed by a group of young people who made it obvious... More

We visited the island with our daughter. The salmon lunch was gee, and the show was enjoyable. It gives you the opportunity to try a few of the local, indigenous dishes. It can be quite an educational outing as well.

If you have a nice day in Seattle, this trip is well worth it. It is run by Argosy Cruises and takes you out to Blake Island from pier 55, and the journey to the island is about 45 minutes. During the journey we were regaled with a couple of native folklore tales. On arrival we were greeted with a... More

This last weekend I took the Argosy Cruise over to Tillicum Village and had a great time. The trip over was nice as the weather was good and the water very calm. The crew aboard the Argosy were quite helpful, friendly, and knew a lot about the history of the area. Upon arriving and disembarking from the vessel we were... More

We really enjoyed the experience of the tour boat, historical perspective and stories from the cruise director on the way to the island both before and after dinner, the buffet meal, native dance/show, observing and visiting with local artisans. Very interesting evening and the meal was delicious!

Tillicum Village is a great place. From the time you leave with the narration form Haida (Christopher) telling stories from legends, this really was a voyage of discovery. Greeted with clams and stamping the shells into the pathway, you really want to get inside and be a part of the place for a while. The salmon was fantastic, and I... More
