“Good tourist activity with all ages”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

You are going for an event- not quality food. You get an OK boat ride and story telling with a show. This is a family trip, not an event for a celebration, rather a family get together- a shared experience. Takes pretty much all day and can be done at any pace- grandparents can take leisurely stroll on the island and more adventurist can do their thing.

“Expensive but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Wonderful experience for college-age dau, h.s.-age son and me! Hard to find activities for these ages but this was exceptional. The guide/educator on the boat was fantastic--informative, knowledgeable, engaging; we really leaned a lot! Bonus was a pod of orcas which accompanied our boat on the bay for 10-15 minutes!! Food (esp. salmon!) and Native Am. presentation were excellent. Art work and gift shop were nice, too--not exceptionally over-priced. Would recommend it to friends, for sure!

“Neat Native American Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Haven't been here since I was in school, but this is a neat, if I remember correctly, somewhat expensive, experience.

“Took the charter via Argosy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Price wasn't cheap ($80pp) but the experience was worth it. 45 to 50 min ride each way. Great view of downtown Seattle from the water. Salmon buffet was very high quality including the side dishes. The story telling was very informative and native dancers well choreographed. I'd recommend it if you have 4 hours to spare. Jim the tour guide did a great job explaining the history of Seattle.

Great place to begin to understand the local culture that we have almost destroyed. Good Salmon too!
