Well, there is not a lot to do in Ketchikan so this is it for a show. It is located on the harbor close to where the cruise ships dock so very convenient. Touristy, kitschy, corny but quite funny and amusing. Try to get there...More

We usual stir away from tourist areas and tourist draws while travelling but I decided to trust trip advisor reviews on this one. Was it hooky? Yes! Was it a true portrayal of a lumberjack competition? Probably not! Were the jokes obviously rehearsed vaudville? Yes!...More

We had a great time at the Lumberjack Show. The Lumberjacks were not only personable but also amazing in the feats of strength and agility. They were also a lot of fun.

The show was well paced and featured handsome and athletic young men showing off talents with axes and saws. I booked it as a cruise shore excursion.

I doubt they give a refund. However, I have not heard of a cruise being so delayed or missing a port that you would need to worry about that. I bought my tickets ahead of time on their website and it was a much better deal... More
