How was your experience?
You go on a 45 min boat ride to Blake Island... for those who get cold, I recommend a jacket and maybe even gloves. There are covered areas, but they may have the windows open. After you land on the Island and they greet you with the Clam Nectar, which by far is one of the best. Have some more, because you can have as much as you like, it's like the appetizer to the buffet. Try to get in line earlier for your seating to get better seats. If you're a big eater like me, get your plate faster, or a second plate when you think you want more. They don't allow as much time for leisure eaters... the show will be during the end of the meal. There is this berry cobbler for dessert, but it's small and that is not all you can eat. After buffet and show you will have 45 min before the boat heads back... if you're not the last boat, you can always go on the next one... there is green, water, and a park area for those who want to stay longer to relax, as campers spend the weekends there... but if you just want to head back in the allotted time, be mindful of your time if you want to see... there is some to see, but if you want to walk around the water and so forth, then just make sure to watch time. On the trip to the island, the guide is really informative of stories and so forth and the show is also informative of the natives and how Seattle came to be. On the trip back, you may ask the guide questions, but he will allow for you guys to enjoy the trip back without talking. LOVED IT!
