The food was great, but out entire party was disappointed with the tiny amount of salmon we got. There was beef stew to supplement, but just not the same. All of the food was delicious. The table service was very slight as there were more guests then they had anticipated. We ended up getting our own water and went to the bar for our wine.The cruse was great and the tour guide really knew what he was talking about. Everything was very informative.
We had out of town guests from San Francisco that were excited about the Tillicum Excursion. When we arrived in Seattle, the directions printed on our tickets said to go to the Seattle Aquarium to pick up our tickets. We waited in the long line to find out that the ticket pickup window had changed to a location several blocks away. We went to the “new location” to get out tickets, just in time to board the boat before it set off for Blake Island.
It was a beautiful day, so the 25-minute trip to Blake Island was enjoyable. Once at the Island, we waited in line for the clams that are served to the guest. Our guests were extra excited, as they had never experienced the PNW clams before. Just as we got to the front of the line, from patiently waiting our turn, we were told – “I am so sorry, we just ran out of clams”…. WHAT???? So very disappointing!
I had assured our guests that the Dinner was Fabulous (and worth the wait) as well as the Dinner show, so we enjoyed a cocktail until we were able to be seated for our dinner. My husband (who is allergic to fish) was guaranteed that there were MANY other food items to select from, so he would not be disappointed! When we got up to the buffet, much of the food was gone and had not been replenished. The only main course item that would have been available for my husband to eat would have been the beef stew. Unfortunately, there was no beef stew left!!! My husband had salad, a little bit of what was left of the fresh fruit, some overcooked polenta and cookies. Our guests also had the same experience, they were however able to get some of the Salmon, which was delicious.
I had told them about the elaborate Dinner Show (which I had seen about 6 years prior) that had lights, music, dancing, etc… Once the show began, it was clear that something had changed. What was, 6 years ago – was no longer. The stage no longer had the rock/cliff setting it had in the past, instead, in its place was a hologram type of backdrop with a storyteller, and later 3 people who jumped across the stage in wooden masks, slamming close the mouth of the mask making loud clacking noises. This “show” lasted about 20 minutes vs the 60-minute play like presentation (with elaborate displays) of the past.
We were extremely disappointed with the entire experience. We basically paid $400 for a 25-minute boat ride to and from Blake Island.
Everyone was super nice and friendly. The salmon was the BEST! All the food was good. The rice could have been cooked a little more, but it was taste. The story telling and the dance was the best. I just wish there had been more! The island was nice. I liked seeing the eagle!!! The ship was very comfortable. I was very impressed with all your employees!
I experienced this years ago when they had real dancers and a real drum show. It was, I think, called Thunderdrums and it was spectacular. Since that show, I have told so many people about this and they have to experience it. Then I went a week ago and was very disappointed. They now have digital people and only three live performers. NO real drum show and it was very underwhelming. Everything else was as good as before. The food, the boat ride, and the facilities. It was just very apparent they are trying to save money by having less live bodies. Such a shame. It's way overpriced for the fake show.
