It's fun, it's easy beach access, and the Indian Cultural Center is great.

It is abou a 45-50 min. boat trip from Seattle to the Island. The boat is run by Argosy Cruises. The trip is narrated. The tour guide was very chipper, but informative. The clams are stringy and gritty, but smashing the shells on the ground is fun. You watch the salmon being prepared and then line up (and I mean line up) for the buffet. The food is very good, espically the salmon and bread. You can't go through the line 2x and the plates are not large. It's an experience, not an all you can eat folks. The cultural show is very nice and then there is a short time to enjoy the island. We saw lots of wildlife. We will be back. It was well worth it.

On a bright sunny day, I took my then 10 year old grand-daughter to Blake Island. The ferry ride from downtown Seattle took approximately 45 minutes. On the ferry over we sat and played hand-games. I had a couple of coupons so there was a nice discount. After we disembarked, we were greeted with hot clams that we were encouraged to drop the shells on the ground. The pathways were covered in shells. After a greeting we went into the "Long " house where we stood before a long table laden with all kinds of food. Off to the side, we witness the Salmon being prepared by the Native Americans in the traditional way. Tied to spikes of cedar, then place in a circle around an open, blazing fire. We gathered our plates and went into the dinning area where we were seated. Then an amazing dance show began. After the show, we went out and began the 5 mile walk around the little Island. All kinds of walking trails which leads you right back where you started. The Island has alot of history to it. You can always catch a later ferry back to Seattle if you want. A wonderful place to bring the family.

My boyfriend and I live over in Bremerton and took my jetski over to Blake Island. It has nice sandy beaches and a lot of easy trails for walking. The marina isn't very large so it fills up quick and also note that there aren't any stores in case you need anything. There's a nice restaurant that serves traditional native american foods, salmon etc. It was a very relaxing trip and everyone you run into is there to have a fun time-no grumpy people!
