Overall good deal for the price. AAA discount available as well. Food was good, village is very nice to visit, great gift shop. Argosy boat kind of run down but you are only on it for 45 min to get there. Drink prices ok, soda is not free. The native show at Tillicum was OK, nothing special. My warning to... More

The boat ride to Tillicum village is great, offers a good view of downtown Seattle. Once you arrive at the island, they offer you a bowl of clamp soup, which tastes great. And you can throw the clamp shells on the clamp shell path. The salmon buffet and the cultural performance are good too. After the performance, you can have... More

First time going to Tillicum Village and Blake Island. Ferryboat ride to the island was nice, scenic views of the city and Mt Rainier as we headed out. Snacks and drinks for sale during the ride. Would recommend holding off on the snacks, saving room for your meal. Clean restrooms on board. Narrator talked about Indian heritage going and coming,... More

We have friends from the Netherlands here, a family of four, and we all went here on the Friday 11:30 sailing. The 45 minute boat ride was just right and gave everyone a perspective on Seattle they'd not had before. The clams upon disembarking were enjoyed by very one - even the kids. The whole experience is very well managed... More

We are grateful to have met Christopher Frank who was our narrator on the boat ride to Blake Island. His native heritage comes from the Haidu people. The food and native dance at Tillicum village was enjoyable. After the show you will have great photo opportunities of native costumes and masks. The gift shop was one of the best we... More

Normally, I would recommend going somewhere when it is less crowded, but we went on a Thursday and it just wasn't as much fun as it might have been with a full house. I also felt that they may have less staff present, as well. Overall, however, this is an EXCELLENT value and a good introduction to Northwestern Native American... More

Before our children we visited and the program has since changed for what I think was for the better. Boat ride was nice with the view of the city skyline and available for purchase were beverages and snacks. Like the story telling on our way to the island. We sat with another family at the table but did not feel... More

It is about 45 minutes boat ride to Blaker Island. It is nice to see Seattle bay front view from boat. Once you get off boat you will have chance to see wild raccoon hunting his food near the deck. If you attending the show, you will be greeted with cup of steamed clam. It is very tasty. The buffet... More

I was excited to go to this activity but somewhat disappointed. The boat ride was great and the drinks and snacks onboard were among the cheapest of all the places I went in Seattle. The island greeting was nice with the steamed clams. We were seated and then went through the line to eat. All of the food was very... More
