Saw this show when our Cruise ship visited. We've never seen anything like it before. It was excellent, well worth it. What makes it fun is the Canadian American rivalry between the lumberjacks. It's only an hour show but seems longer because of what's going...More

These lumberjacks were very entertaining and very good at what they do! It was cold outside and the heated seating area was nice.

We had pre-booked this directly with the show and it was great value. Just a 5 minute walk from the ship the whole show was well presented and showed off the skills of the lumberjacks. My wife and sister-in-law were particularly impressed (can’t think why!)...More

A fun way to spend time ashore in Ketchikan. All ages would enjoy this display of lumberjack skills. It's staged as a competition between rival camps (US vs Canada) & they really get the audience involved. The feats accomplished by these young athletes are amazing!...More

The lumberjacks are amazing to watch. They have so much skill. You are assigned on a team based on your seat location. So you root for your team, which is fun. A couple of kids got upset over the chainsaws being loud and probably scary...More

The show was fine. You cheer for your team so it's an interactive show. The tricks are cool but my 3 & 5 year olds weren't that into it. They liked the dog that was in the show. Maybe a little better suited for kids...More

Yes,it's all about men with chainsaws but the show was enjoyable and amusing. There are good parts of the show where their skills as lumberjacks are shown. Competition between the teams supported by sections of the audience keeps everyone Involved. After the show, visit the...More

We attended this show off our Alaskan cruise, thinking it sounded interesting. The set was small; the script was corny; and the price was high- $35 a person. The outdoor seating was made up of heated bleachers, quite cozy. The show lasted about an hour...More

There are typically at least 2 shows per day/very busy when cruise ships are in town though, but worth your time.
