Blake Island Adventure Cruise

Blake Island is a tiny 475-acre jewel nestled in Puget Sound where legend has it that it is the birthplace of Chief Seattle.  Home to Tillicum Village, this special 8-mile cruise away from the activity of the Seattle Central Waterfront offers visitors the chance to explore some of our first Nation’s culture, hike, beachcomb or camp out in the old growth forest along the sandy saltwater beach.  The island’s campsites offer a wonderful, safe environment for camping and hiking with children.  Blake Island is home to deer, mink, otters, bald eagles, kingfishers and great blue herons.
