Available via Argosy cruise we often get the dinner and trip package from Seattle waterfront. It is a great way to entertain out of town visitors. Beautiful view both ways to Bale Island and back, it is more comfortable to cruise than Kayaking there unless you are an athlete. You will be greeted with a hot cup of clam soup... More

The ferry ride over will give you a beautiful view of the city. Once you arrive, you will be greeted by the awesome smell of alder wood smoked salmon aroma. The entire meal was AMAZING and the entertainment was educational as well. Great way to spend a day while touring this beautiful city!

We did the dinner with 4 kids. The whole experience from ferry ride, to arrival, dinner and show were all excellent. The lodge is really nice. My kids (9, 7, 7, and 3) all had a great time and enjoyed the show. My husband does not like salmon and even he thought it was good. The buffet was fresh and... More

If you like salmon you will like this. Cooked historically, wonderful boat trip over (bring a coat unless it is really hot out because the wind can get chilly). Once there there are trails if you are inclined to hike. I thought the show was terrific. Because of the boat trip plan on spending a few hours away from seattle.

I just love Blake Island. Tillicum Village is a fun little place to go and enjoy the evening. The food is so-so. It is more of the experience that makes it fun. Try to plan to go on a nice day with no chance of rain. :-)

A small group of us went with someone who needed to use a wheelchair for part of the trip. The service was fantastic! The staff efficiently and carefully got us all aboard the ship and settled. They were very thoughtful about having the wheelchair available on the island also, even though it was not needed for part of this visit.... More

On a nice day, this activity might have received a "5" but the day we visited cold and rain took away some of the fun. It takes about 4 hours to cruise to Blake Island, eat a yummy dinner (the salmon was delicious), see a live show explaining part of the culture of the people who settled Seattle and Chief... More

This is definitely a great experience! From the moment you step off your boat and are welcomed with delicious steamed clams right through the wonderful baked salmon dinner and the entertaining dinner show you will be creating a great vacation memory! The only down side we found was the narrator on the trip over. The narrative was too long, he... More

What I like about visiting new places is learning about the native people's culture and history. Tillicum Village was a great place to learn about the native culture. It begins with a buffet prepared by the natives containing the foods that they have used to survive and maintain health. This is followed by a stage show to demonstrate their music,... More
