Ketchikan Lumberjack Show Excursion Reviews
This really is a fun, family-friendly activity!
I don't think there was a single person there that didn't enjoy themselves! Everyone got into cheering for their side and the lumberjacks were great entertainers!
This was an easy 5 minute walk from the ship!
The lumberjack show was fun and entertaining. I would recommend to anyone with kids. And as they advertised, it is in a covered and heated setting. In fact it was so warm we took all our jackets off to stay cool.
Walking through Creek Street was nice. There's a ton of souvenirs available in these stores. However it may have been the time of the season we went (late in their season) but the prices here were much higher than in the next ports for the exact same items. The next ports all had sales going on and their 50% sale prices brought their "inflated" prices down to better than in Ketchikan prices.
They also have a big selection of jackets and rain hear here for a cheap price. If you forget to bring anything, you can pick items up here for good prices.
Lunch at Annabelle's Keg and Chowderhouse was very good.
Show was fun. They packed too many people into one show
The town of Ketchican is small. Once you are off the ship there is a building that will sell you more excursions. The day we were there it was SUNNY! Now this is a bit unusual as in August they get 10 inches of rain and on the day we were there. NONE Sunny skies. Also if you like popcorn check out Yukon Heath’s Popcorn Emporium. YUMMM if you want to save it and keep it fresh, bring ziplock bags to store it in.
Cheesy, but a great time was had by all.
1.5 hours of fun/silly lumber jack silliness with Chopping, Sawing, Tree Climbing, Axe Throwing, History and much more. One block off Cruise Ship Docks. Cushioned, Covered & Heated Grandstands. Rain or Shine.
We did the lumber jack show and cultural tour. The kids were a bit bored on the tour but they loved the lumberjack show!
Lots of fun great way to start the day. You can walk down the pier and buy tickets on your own. My suggestions is to see the show and just stay in town and walk the creek.
Even in the pouring rain, this was a delightful show. It was informative and entertaining at the same time.
Mediocre. A lot of shouting, strutting, flexing of muscles, some parts of the act were clever. Guess I was influenced because I came off a farm and chopped wood for cooking and warmth. Also some of our Agricultural shows have wood chop competitions.
A really neat 1hr family adventure. Lots of fun.
Lumberjack tour was informative and fun. The crowd loved getting the wood chips from each competition. These are real competitors that compete all over the country.
Kept us entertained.
This was my 3rd time to see this show and my kids loved it as I did. The lumberjacks are funny, informative and nice to the passengers. I would see it again.
The four lumberjacks were divided into two teams representing the U.S. and Canada. The competition was fierce, with the audience cheering loudly.
The Lumberjack Show is fun and silly. Totally worth the ticket price. Loved wandering around Ketchikan. We went to the Totem Heritage Museum on our own via public transportation - very easy and free. Even saw the salmon swimming upstream! Enjoyed visiting Creek Street and Dolly's House. Really great port.
This was a silly diversion. It was great that is was so close to the pier. Of course, nobody had any control over this, but it was fantastic that it was a beautiful sunny day -- our only sunny port on this trip. The Show was corny and fun.
How can one go wrong with a Lumberjack show!
Touristy, but what can you expect? They work hard but overpriced.
I was a bit skeptical at first but it's a lot of fun and the show is produced specifically for Disney so it's you and hundreds of fellow shipmates. Our kids loved this show. A good time had by all!
Something different but notthing really give you a "WOW"
So worth it - really fun!
Corny but fun.
The only ship excursion we took was the Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show in Ketchikan. The show was very good and worth the price of the $35.00 ticket.
loved this show! great for adults, great for children.......performers even took the time to pose for photos at shows end......nice souvenir!
