Saturday July 24, 2010 / Various TimesTillicum Village Salmon Bake and Cruise
6:30pm (Boarding begins at 6:00pm) - General Admission (Adult)
How was your experience?
This is a very touristy event, I do not recommend if you are from the Seattle area because you will be disappointed. The bar on the boat made good drinks which was nice considering what they label as a cruise is really just a small shuttle boat with lots of folding chairs set up. Once you get there there's an Indian song and dance type thing, but all of the people in the performance are just regular employees some it's a lot of young girls, some blonde which for me was really distracting since I was expecting Native American performances and history. The dinner was good, very nice and the performance inside was really interesting even though again, the young girls that worked there just didn't portray certain things that I had hoped to see. So if you're looking for a real Native American experience, this is not for you. The island is BEAUTIFUL I suggest going at night and head to the southeast side of the island for a beautiful view of Rainier.
