This was a great trip on Argosy to Tillicum Village. The trip to the island was informative and enjoyable. As you dock you are greeted with amazing steamed clams in a broth - delicious. When you go into the long house you can see how they cook the salmon (which taste amazing). Everyone on the island were so nice, the... More

I spent this morning on Blake Island with my five-year old grandson. We met the Argosy tour boat at pier 55 and traveled 45 minutes to the island. While in route, we enjoyed a local history discussion and stories of Native Peoples in the area. When we arrived, we were greeted with steaming cups of freshly cooked clams followed by... More

I booked a Tillicum Village cruise through Argosy Cruises for myself and a friend. I had bought two City Passes and selected the upgrade option. I upgraded via telephone, and it went quite smoothly. The fee included a narrated cruise trip to Blake Island (about 45 minutes on the water each way), a clam soup appetizer, a buffet and a... More

The great Indian history and cultural dialog to and from the village was fantastic. Thanks Raven for giving us light, and Salmon, and water! This tour knows how to do it right. After a very interesting and informative ride to the island, we were eating as soon as we stepped off the boat! LOVE IT! Then the smoked salmon buffet... More

Going and coming to Blake Island, sit in the back of the boat. Going, the Seattle skyline retreats; if returning in the evening, the sunset behind the mountiains is wonderful. The show is interesting but don’t be the last person in the serving line as you will not have enough time to eat (and return for more) before the show... More

Very nice trip over to Tillicum Village on the boat. Great view of Seattle as we pulled away. I liked this tour better than the harbor tour. Lovely area when we arrived, very cool welcome with the oyster stew. The food was good, but a bit of a huge cafeteria feel. Lots of big groups. NO AC even on a... More

Definitely something worth doing in Seattle when the weather is beautiful as it was when we visited. It was not at the top of our touristy things to do in three days, but it made the list. Boat ride is enjoyable with spectacular views of Seattle's waterfront. Great photo ops of the Big Wheel, ferry traffic and Mt Rainier. Great... More

After reading other reviews on TripAdvisor, I wasn't sure if this excursion would be worth it, but I found this to be an interesting tour. If budget is an issue for you, and you haven't seen other attractions in Seattle, you may want to wait to visit Tillicum Village. I have been visiting Seattle every year for 20 years and... More

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
