Tillicum Village Adventure is a great place to go. It is perfect for all ages. The trip starts when you board the boat at Seattle Waterfront pier. It is about a 45 minute cruise to Blake Island in Puget Sound. There is seating inside and outside for passengers. The cruise director gives an interesting talk on the history of the... More

The ride was nice, the food was good, not sure that it was salmon as it tasted just like steelhead trout. Performers did a great job but it would be nice to have more native representation and involvement. Need to focus more on the tribes that are around Puget Sound. Very touristy.

This was a really nice trip. The boat ride over and back to Blake island was very nice, we enjoyed the storytelling. Views, even with the smoke were very nice. We would have enjoyed more time on the island, and I probably would do as others had mentioned and take the earlier trip out to explore the island, then stay... More

Very interesting presentation of the history of the Coast Salish tribes. The food was good - especially the Salmon. This is definitely worth the time.

The boat ride across the Pugit sound provided fantastic views of the city. The cruise director who was a native American gave us a good insight on the history. The food was quite good and the Salmon was exceptional. The show was good. Recommend for visitors to Seattle.

We took the 4:30 boat tour to Tillicum Village for the dinner show and we had a good time. I get motion sick very easily so I took some Bonine before I got on the boat, but I probably didn't even need to since the ride was very calm and there was a lot of outdoor seats. The Village was... More

This four hour Argosy Cruise/Tour enlightens us by explaining the strong bonds with nature of the beautiful Pacific Northwest shared by the native people including Chief Seattle who was born on Blake Island. The 45 minute boat ride from the marina provided a beautiful view of the city while we were told stories shared by the local tribes. Upon arrival... More

The boat ride on the Argosy boats is almost worth the trip, in that the skyline and views of Seattle are beautiful. The Clam broth and clams given to you upon leaving the boat at the Village are delicious, (if you like clams meat). The meal served as a part of the tour is OK, but nothing exceptional. After the...

This is a great way for anyone new to the area - and especially those who have limited time in the area - to have a lovely narrated boat ride, sample traditional foods and learn a bit of Salish group Native American history and myth. Approximately 4 hours altogether, the most frequent complaint I have heard and I agree is... More
