About this Activity
When you arrive at Tillicum Village, make your way up to the longhouse along the pathway strewn with clam shells bleached by the sun. Before you enter the longhouse, take a moment and enjoy an appetizer of clams and nectar. Be sure to crush the empty clam shells when you are finished as it is the tradition to help preserve the path!
Inside the longhouse, watch as whole Chinook salmon is cooked over an alder-wood fire on cedar stakes in the traditional Northwest Coast Indian style. As you finish your buffet meal, the lights dim while the myth and magic come to life in the spellbinding performance featuring the Tillicum Village dancers.
The highly acclaimed show leads visitors through an enchanting tour of the customs, beliefs and dances of the Northwest Coast Indians. In this 25-minute production, the authentic dances are representative of the myths and legends from various tribes along the Northwest Coast. Modern storytelling and symbolism are combined with the theatrics of the stage to enhance the ethnic and cultural heritage of an exceptional people.
After the show, you have approximately 45-minutes of free time when you can watch carving demonstrations, browse through the gift gallery featuring artwork of local artisans or stroll along the pleasant beaches and forest trails.
Finally, board the boat and enjoy the relaxing cruise back to Seattle.

The trip to Tillicum Village was a really nice excursion whilst in Seattle and I would recommend it to anyone. It was very interesting, the food was amazing, the service good and the location very relaxing. The 45min boat trip from Seattle to Blake island was also very relaxing and informative.

We really enjoyed that boat ride to and from the island, and the food was incredible!Mic
Janet L.Tillicum Village Cultural Experience September 2, 2016
Trip was easy to find, well organised, good ferrying with helpful guide. Experience at Blake Island was excellent. Food was excellent. Entertainment excellent - although I wouldn't say toddlers would be comfortable for the time in the dark with the documentary... Only criticism was that we were not there long enough to checkout the gift shop AND take a walk on the island.

Very informative, well-spoken cruise director/speaker. The meal was excellent, the boat comfortable, and all in all, a very enjoyable time. Tillicum Village was clean, and we enjoyed watching the salmon being smoked.

My husband Aaron and I just relocated here 3 months ago. Our daughter came for a visit from NYC and we wanted to have a cultural experience and this was perfect. The food was fabulous, the tour guides were amazing, boat ride perfect and so was the entertainment. Well worth every dime! I would take other guests for this experience!

This tour was amazing!
Beverly A.Tillicum Village Cultural Experience June 6, 2016
The visit to Blake Island and Tillicum Village was truly all that was advertised and more. I'm glad we made the time to see this presentation, and wish we had more time to explore the island. The buffet lunch and show was great, and this just renewed and reinforced my interest in the Native tribes and their culture. Their dances and the stories they told, truly reflected their respect for their culture and ancestors. I would totally recommend this experience to everyone visiting Seattle!!
