Overview

Get all your rowdy friends together and join in the Alaskan axe-tion in this amazing competition of skill and strength. The Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show reflects upon southeast Alaska’s rich logging history and comes to life with thrilling displays of strength and agility. These world champion athletes wearing spiked boots & hard hats compete in 12 athletic events that utilize seven-pound axes, six-foot razor sharp saws, tree climbing gaffs, and souped up chainsaws. Your cheers will turn to roars of excitement as axes fly through the air, men free fall from tall trees, and then run atop spinning logs floating in the water. The show is held in a covered, heated, and cushioned grandstand that includes a rustic lodge gift shop and full concession. This will be one hour of action, excitement, and laughs that is unique to all of Alaska.

Great show. One of the best highlights of our vacation. This was the first cruise ever for me and my husband, and we thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of God's creations. Everyone should go on this cruise sometime in their life time.

Visited Ketchikan from cruise ship. I had heard that the show wasn't to be missed and I wasn't disappointed. The lumberjacks were very skilled and very entertaining. I booked direct with them rather than through thd cruise ship which is a lot cheaper.

The skills of the lumberjacks were amazing, and the enjoyment was enhanced by the friendly competition between the teams. A great show. We attended on a cold, wet day, but the overhead heaters in the stands kept us warm.

I think $37 adult but the ships try to get you to buy on board saying they would be sold out if you wait. This might be the case in high season but this time of the year I would risk it, it’s not very far from where the ship... More

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