  • Wow, the Americans got really excited and took a very vocal role in the audience of this show. Middle aged woman screaming with delight and trying to win post card with a photo of the males...

  • A friend recommended this to my wife for our AK cruise and we decided to book directly with the Great AK Lumberjack Show vs the boat. My wife was so excited about this and I went with her to keep her out of trouble. The show was fun to watch the interaction with the lumberjacks and the crowd and of course, amongst themselves. We enjoyed the entire show and worth our time in Ketchikan. Definitely fun for the kids, but it is a lumberjack show, so there are saws and loud noises. Please be mindful of that aspect, but worth the hour of fun.
  • It was a great show! They do well with engaging the crowd and having fun. The seats are shaded plus there are concessions and a gift ship up front. They also have axe throwing available afterwards which cool! Oh and they communicate with the cruise ships so you dont have to worry about missing your return.
