What a pleasure it was! The program was interesting. The buffet was absolutely superb: beautifully served and delicious food!
Enjoyed the entire experience. The boat ride was beautiful and the cruise director gave an excellent narrative on the way over and the way back. The food was good and the Indian dancers and story tellers were far better than I had expected.
Sadly, my sister and I could not meet up with our group on time. Our motel desk person assured us we could get a shuttle but that turned out not to be true. We tried our best, using the light rail but didn't arrive until 4:45--the boat had left. We were so disappointed :(
A very pleasant surprise. Food was very good, staff was very friendly, and the presentation was very professional. We've seen a lot and this was great.
It was very educational little trip and the food was great. We wish we had more time to explore the island.
This was an amazing experience, great for the whole family. The food was beyond amazing, the dance was great, the service was perfect. Thanks for the great experience! The ONLY thing my family and I wished was different, was for more time to explore the island after dinner. We were given just about 45 mins of walking time after dinner.
Going to Blake Island we got some history about the area surrounding us and we were then told once we were off the boat we would have some clams and dispose of the shells by crushing them with your shoe and once in the smokehouse we sat down for dinner and of course salmon was one of the items served.
We then watched for about 20minutes native americans dance and tell their stories and we then had about 25minutes of free time to explore the island.
This was a brilliant morning and afternoon out - highlight of our three work holiday in America - which is saying something as we went to Chicago, Glacier National Park, Vancouver, Portland and San Francisco as well as Seattle. And we got to see Mount rainier as we came back! Brilliant organisation, brilliant guide, brilliant food and presentation - What more can we say - Natalie and Peter from Bath, England

This trip was amazing! i would recommend this for everyone.
We started off on a fantastic boat ride-took approx 45 mins-from the wharf to the Tillicum village,with full commentary on the way.We were greeted by the locals with a cup of the clam broth, the tradition was to drink the broth,toss the clam shells on the ground and crush up with your feet,this makes for a great pathway from the boat to the entrance.The show was good, the food was great,we saw the salmon being baked in the traditional way-plenty to eat, fresh salads and chocolate berry cake,and of course the salmon, were on the menu.We headed back to Seattle after dark,what an amazing tour.I recommed this to any 1st timers to Seattle.Regards Bev -Australia
Loved this cultural heritage tour. Seattle is such a great city and the history of Blake Island is captivating. The salmon bake buffet was amazing and the hiking trails brought you back to nature.
