Last time our family took this trip, the show was much more entertaining and authentic. I was quite disappointed with the show. The holograms are no where near as good as the real narrator, and real dancers, however, the salmon was as good as ever, the island exploration, and the boat ride was beautiful. The price is getting a bit... More

Argosy does a great job from the moment we walked down the ramp in Seattle and had our photo taken before entering Goodtime II to the moment we returned to Seattle. The boats are comfortable and offered indoor and outdoor seating on both levels as well as drinks and food on the main level. A knowledgeable story teller shared information... More

This was a great adventure for the whole family. Boat ride is long enough to be relaxing for the adults but short enough that the kids didn't get bored. Boat (The Goodtime II) was comfortable and smooth with great seating inside and out. Our guide provided entertaining stories along the way of several sites we saw. Once at Blake Island,... More

This was a good half day excursion, with 45 minutes boat ride and nice view around Elliott Bay. It's a small island with lots of deers. Shoreline was not very welcoming as it was clogged with lots of broken trees. Our tour was a charter tour and they customized food for us. Native indian tribal show was mediocre as it... More

This was a fun little trip we'd done with our 11-year old son. We looked forward to the food (fresh salmon & the Tillicum brown bread) the most and we were not disappointed, the rest of the menu was OK - plenty of food so we were stuffed. The show was OK too, cast was small and the show was... More

This was one part of an excursion we booked after our cruise. Very informative cruise. Beautiful island. Very good food. Enjoyed our time exploring the island before our return cruise.

It was a very pleasurable ride on the ferry with wonderful views of the bay and Seattle. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide. The downside was the other passengers were so rude and talked so loud over her you could not hear her most of the trip. The show and the dinner was very good. It was the best... More

This is a great three hour excursion. First you go by ferry to Dawes Island for a lunch and traditional Native American show. Lunch is provided and it is great-salmon, salad, rice, berry crumble and complimentary soda, alcohol is available for sale. There is an area where you can watch them bake the salmon, also a great gift shop with... More

The boat ride to and from the village was chilly but wonderful. You can sit inside and be toasty warm if you wish. The tour guide was knowledgeable but didn't drone on. There are snacks and beverages available. The island is beautiful and the show was interesting. It gave a taste of the culture without being too long. The food... More

I had visited Tillicum Village a couple of times years ago, and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it....especially the show. This time, however, the show was a huge disappointment. I remember a wonderful dance production of native Americans in traditional elaborate costumes. The current show was mostly on a movie screen with 3 dancers doing only a couple dances. So if... More
