My mentor and I took our class here and the wildlife was one of the highlights. We saw a bald eagle, raccoons, a killdeer, etc.

We've been here on the day trip through Argosy several times in years past but were less than impressed with the food. Although it seemed stuck in the mediocre to not bad region there was much room for improvement.
We offered feedback and apparently they've listened and acted accordingly.
On our recent trip we found the food and service to be absolutely spotless.
Though I've been reluctant to recommend the tour in the past my position has now been elevated to highly recommended.
Good job and thanks for listening! Its nice to see this gem shining at full potential.

The best way to visit Blake Island is by private boat but Argosy offers tours/dinners during the spring/summer. It is a great place to let kids run free.
Last weekend we visited with 40 other people on 18 boats. You can rent a shelter and there are BBQ facilities but no lights or power except in the toilets. We bring a generator and lights. There is a large elevated fire pit with a hood in the shelter and 6 large bench tables. The scenery offers the Seattle skyline, Mt. Rainier, marine traffic and both sunrises and sunsets.
The marina is available on a first come basis so visits during the week or arriving early on Friday are recommended.
The resident ranger, Paul Rupert, does an excellent job of maintaining everything and making sure all regulations are adhered with. This has rubbed some visitors the wrong way (read negative reviews) but without his diligence, the park would not be the great place it is. He has our full support!

Most visitors to Blake Island go for the salmon bar-b-que and Indian dancing. Skip this and hike the many trails, many leading to campsites. Take a picnic and explore the beach or set up your shore side camping. Truly a great, quiet destination with a marina if you travel by boat. The island is entirely walkable. Otherwise you can take the Blake Island tour boat from the Seattle waterfront, specifying Travel Only. Go!!

I almost hate to share this one, because it already can get a bit crowded on weekends and nice summer days. I have only been visiting the island for 60 years, and it has not yet disappointed me. 5 miles of hiking trails if you want exercise. The area next to the marina is beautiful and the view towards Rainier across the water is a real favorite.
Food is available but in my eyes overpriced at the native American center "Tillicum Villiage".
The only way to the island is by a significant water crossing & the sound can kick up quite a bit, so be careful if crossing in a little boat.
