Tour activities in Pacific Northwest
Another easy way to get onto the Sound from Seattle is with Tillicum Village Tours, which operates from March and December, departing from Pier 55. The four-hour trip to Blake Island - the birthplace of Seattle's namesake, Chief Sealth - includes a salmon bake, a native dance and a movie at an old Duwamish Native American village.
Gray Line has a whole catalog of Seattle-area bus tours, but its three hour–plus City Sights Tour is recommended as a quick-hit rundown of the city’s highlights in a 20-passenger coach. Gray Line also offers multiday package tours to the San Juan Islands and Victoria, BC. All trips depart from the Gray Line ticket desk at the convention center at 800 Convention Place.
