My wife and I went to this show while sailing on Radiance of the Seas with our four year-old son. Everyone had a great time! The show is loud, boisterous and full of one-liners and outstandingly-terrible jokes! While the atmosphere is fun and silly, don't...More

Not a lot to do in Ketchikan itself. The Lumberjack show is pretty tame. Might be fun for kids but as an adult I found it forgettable. They have 4 lumberjacks, young guys, who compete as two teams to see who can do certain feats...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.

Very disappointed. More like a three ring circus. Very overpriced. For the price you would expect a first class show and it was far from that. Some interesting things but trying hard to make a comedy out of the show.

My husband and I enjoyed the lumberjack show! These young men have some great skills and are very entertaining. Even though it is on the staged side, they do make it interesting and fun for all ages! Recommended!!

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