Experience the Northwest’s tribal culture with our Tillicum Village Sightseeing Tour Cruise and Native American Salmon Bake and Performance. Cruise to historic Blake Island — legendary birthplace of Chief Seattle. On arrival you’ll be greeted with steamed clams in savory nectar. Inside our cedar longhouse, watch salmon being carefully prepared over open fires as it has been for centuries, before you have a chance to taste it for yourself. After your meal, sit back and enjoy our one-of-a-kind stage performance and imagery combining Coast Salish storytelling and live traditional Native American dance.

Tillicum Village is proud to be the only experiences of its kind in the Northwest. It’s the only place in the world where you can see these dances and hear these songs, performed by the very dancers whose families have owned them for generations. We’re also proud to feature local native storyteller Roger Fernandes of the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe.

Whether you live here or are looking for a true Northwest experience, Tillicum Village is a cultural Native American experience you won’t forget.

Tillicum Village Menu

Steamed Clams in Nectar
As you disembark the boat join other guests for a welcoming mug of steamed clams in broth with a touch of butter and onions - delicious! As is tradition at Tillicum, the used shells are crushed under foot to create the beautiful pathway.
Traditional Alder Baked Salmon
Savor this centuries-old treat! Our salmon, baked around alder wood fires on cedar stakes, is unlike anything you have ever tasted. Taking approximately one hour to bake slowly to perfection, the salmon retains moisture and takes on a wonderful mild flavor unique to this style of cooking. Served with our signature Juniper Berry Seasoning.
Signature Northwest Stew
This thick meaty stew consisting of venison, beef and bison is full of flavors married together in a rich veal stock, combined with root vegetables and potatoes for a mouth-watering dish.
Wild Grain Harvest Rice
Try this wonderful combination of wild and regular rice, cooked to perfection with onions, garlic and a fragrant vegetable stock.
Warm Whole Grain Tillicum Bread
This rich, dark, slightly-sweet bread is made with a hint of molasses - our own private recipe, served warm with butter. So popular, in fact, you can even purchase loaves to take home!
Field Greens Salad
Seasonal greens, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, Oregon blue cheese, with stone ground rosemary dressing or raspberry vinaigrette served on the side.
Tri-Colored Bean Salad
A colorful display of marinated creamy-white cannellini beans and bright, fresh green beans tossed with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and shallots in a red-wine vinaigrette.
Fresh Fruit Salad
Assorted Melons, Grapes, Strawberries and Pineapple, served with a Strawberry Honey Dipping Sauce
Northwest Dessert Treat
Our Chef's signature individual rustic apple pie, served room temperature.l - Delicious!

    Great Food

    The cruise on Puget Sound to Blake Island was a beautiful and scenic journey- not too long though ? 45 minutes? The buffet in the long house was divine? loved the salmon.
