Washington State Ferry Service
This Northwest popular attraction celebrates the traditional food, dances and art of Northwest American Indian cultures, and the historic beauty of this Puget Sound destination. West Coast salmon baked over an open fire and traditional Native American dances are the highlight of a four-hour boat tour that departs from Seattle's Pier 55 provided by Argosy Cruises.
The tour runs daily May through September and on designated dates other months of the year. There are no tours January or February. July and August are the tour's busiest months and early reservations are encouraged during those times.
Additional activities at Tillicum Village include observing Native American carvers as they create hand-made traditional art, and enjoying Tillicum Village's gift shop, which showcases Native American masks, plaques and jewelry. Visitors can also purchase espresso, trail lunches and ice cream from an onsite snack bar.
Visitors who choose to travel to the island by private vessel can also reserve tickets for Tillicum Village's dinner and Native dance production. Due to the show's popularity, visitors arriving by private vessel are encouraged to purchase tickets at least an hour before the event.
Tillicum Village's cedar longhouse is within comfortable walking distance of well-maintained wooded trails. Walking paths offer spectacular views of the surrounding islands and mainland, including Mount Rainier, the Seattle city skyline and Bainbridge Island.
Camping, swimming and other outdoor activities are available on the island, which is known for its pristine beauty and carefully designed state park amenities.
