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

The food was good and to see how they cooked the salmon was very cool. If you are just going for the food then you will be happy with the offerings. The tour director on the boat was very informative but you must sit in the main cabin upstairs to hear his presentation which means you miss all the scenery... More

So much to see in Seattle, but this tour is worth the four hour excursion. You get a harbor cruise, an good Native American salmon meal, Native-American history and show and a visit to an island in the middle of the Puget Sounds. The views of the city and surrounding mountain are nice from the boat. Once arriving on Blake... More

I took my class of 4th and 5th graders on a field trip to Tillicum Village in May. The boat ride over was great, with a performance of a traditional tale as well as a presenter explaining some tribal beliefs and tales. Once arriving at Blake Island, we were ushered into the longhouse and fed a fantastic meal of salmon,... More

Very nice cruise out to the Blake Island on the "Spirit of Seattle". A bar is available on board during the trip to the island. On the island, you have a nice salmon buffet, and an informative native history presentation with native dancing & story-telling. Was a fun excursion!

This is a special place with a limited but delicious menu (fresh salmon), a wonderful boat trip across Puget Sound, an amazing dance performance and a beautiful driftwood covered beach and trails thru a forest. If you schedule your visit early, stay after the meal and dance; and enjoy sunbathing in the driftwood on the beach or wander thru the... More

Love it! Upon arrival, clam soup was served and you have to crush the shells after eating them for this reason you can see a lot of clam shell pieces on the sand. Then later they served the buffet which all the food were great. We saw how the salmon was cooked the native American way. The server are very... More
