Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

These athletes put on a great show. While it is depicted as a competition, it is more of a skill show, with lots of comedy touches. This is a great show for the kids. Don't book it through the cruise line, just walk over and buy a ticket. It will save you money. The show is just a few minute walk from the cruise ships. Come prepared to laugh.

This was another combined Princess Cruise Lines Excursion. It lasted 4 1/2 hours and food was available at the Lumberjack Show. The historical Totems were amazing and our guide (driver) provided much informational narrative of their historical significance, We spent about 2 1/2 hours at the State Park with the rest at the Lumberjack Show. Granted the show was the same as any other lumberjack show except that most I have seen have been on TV, different to see first hand. Every seat a good seat at show. We were lucky as minimal rain day we were there (Ketchikan gets over 13 feet of rain a year).

We did a Ketchikan highlights and lumberjack Show tour through our cruise ship. The value ($80) for the 2 things ,and 4 hours overall I would say was very good. The show is a fun, interactive lumberjack performance. They involve the crowed which makes it interesting. The acting is kind of corny but all and all we had a great time.
