Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show & Crab Feast

Ketchikan's famed Lumberjack show is a rip-roaring good-time celebration of a bygone era. Once a year all of Ketchikan would celebrate their logging heritage at the annual Timber Carnival located at the Lumberjack Sports Arena. You will join in this celebration that is filled with quality entertainment for all ages. The Lumberjack Show reflects upon southeast Alaska's rich logging history and comes to life with thrilling displays of strength and agility.

With stories of lumberjack history & lore, your colorful host will complement the action in front of you. You'll see Alaska's frontier lumberjacks battle British Columbia's premier woodsmen in a no-holds-barred competition for the title "Bull of the Woods."

After the show, you'll have a chance to meet the Jacks for pictures before heading to the rustic yet elegant, George Inlet Lodge for a steaming hot Dungeness crab feast. On the menu is a fresh salad with Asian dressing, and delicious smooth cheesecake with Alaskan blueberry topping for dessert.

Lumber Jack Show was great, driver to our crab feast was great he even stopped so we could look at some bears. The crab feast itself was rushed.

Sep 2023 - Fernando C.

Fun family show

Aug 2023 - Amy G.

The show was great and the all we could eat crab was delicious. It was a longer bus ride from the show to the crab location than I anticipated but the scenery was beautiful. I only downgraded one star because there was some confusion about which bus we were to take and where to go and they could have been more clear about that.

This excursion really impressed this young family (with kids 6 & 9)! The lumberjack show was very entertaining and ran a good length of time. Our shuttle driver (wish I caught his name) was born and raised in Ketchikan, and was a wealth of knowledge pointing out wildlife and details about the way of life there. The crab feast was supremely delicious at a beautiful spot along the water, though a little underwhelming for my 9yo who doesn't like crab and it takes much longer for the alternate meals to cook.

Jun 2023 - Jayme S.

Lumberjack show was fun for the kids, crab feast was amazing! We had a great time!

Aug 2022 - Eleanor S.

This excursion was fantastic, the guide met us at the designated place with a sign that was clearly visible, took us to the lumberjack show then left instructions on where to meet, and took us to George inlet Lodge for crab fest. The Crab fest was amazing...the crabs were so fresh and delicious and the dessert and the salads were amazing. I would do this tour over again and again...

Aug 2022 - Edward C.

Had tremendous fun. Fresh and plentiful crab. The show was spectacular and amazing. Good value.

Jun 2022 - Tatum G.

Crab feast was delicious! Beautiful scenery. Lumberjack show was a fun time for the whole family.

Jun 2022 - Michelle F.

This was a wonderful excursion. The lumberjack show was a lot of fun and we enjoyed it immensely. The crab feast was beyond amazing. Learning how to break the crab legs up to get the most out of them was great. And the crab just kept coming until we couldn't eat another bite. Definitely worth the money.

Family friendly show and very enjoyable!

Sep 2021 - Nettie H.

Super service by your company and great excursion. Enjoyed by all.

Sep 2021 - Nettie H.

Alaska Shore Excursions staff was very professional, prompt in answering my concerns. In my haste to take care of the other 16 people in my group, I didn't get my ticket. I called them and advised them of the problem. They quickly resolved my problem. I was able to attend with my group and did not miss any part of the excursion. Thank you all so much. I will always check this company first to book my excursions.

Good time Very enjoyable

Aug 2021 - Kathy S.

The reason for a review of 3 stars is because the show makes everyone who did not buy a ticket through the cruise ship wait to be seated last, putting all of us in the very far corner. We waited quite a long time to seat us because of a late bus. If they were going to put us way over there anyway, why not let us in? They may even have lost out on concession sales. The show itself was very entertaining.

Aug 2021 - Michael S.

Such a great excursion! Our driver made all the accommodations for us as our ship was late getting into port, even gave us a little shopping time in town and picked us up there! Crab at George Inlet was unbelievable, as was the service! Lumberjack show is very entertaining and educational! All in all we rate this excursion 3 over the 5 stars, at an 8!!!

Oct 2019 - Becky B.

Great show with a photo opportunity afterwards! Definitely a must. It was my first time eating crab but with instructions by the host, I mastered it!

Sep 2019 - Kelly T.

In general we had fun....but from moment we booked this, we were under the impression that we would attend the show first and then gor for crab feast lunch....our time in port was only 7-12:30. On arrival we were informed that we were going for crab first!! at 8:30 in the morning. We obviously had no choice, but found it a little annoying. Other than that, it was well organized and a lot of fun.

Sep 2019 - Dale P.

Everything went as expected, AWESOME! We definitely would book through you all again. Staff professional and knowledgeable!

Sep 2019 - Jessica B.

So much fun! Had trouble getting off the boat and to my destination on time with my knee scooter, but were made it. But the show was super fun and very family friendly.

Sep 2019 - Diane V.

We thought the lumberjack show was a bit weak. Crab feast was disappointing as well. The room wasn't ready for us and a really long way out of town. Crabs were great, fresh and plenty of them.

Aug 2019 - Robert B.

Some of the comments and actions not appropriate for younger viewers.

Aug 2019 - Susie W.

Lumberjack show though staged was a lot of fun. The crab were delicious and they were happy to keep topping up until you say stop! Good fun day.

Aug 2019 - Bruce D.

Great show and evening greater crab. Our tour guide from the show to the crab feast made the short trip very memorable. This guide shared a lot of information about Ketchikan and even some local berries along the way.

Aug 2019 - Rebecca L.

It was a cool show. We weren't expecting the long drive to the crab feast, but it was amazing!! The people were very nice and accommodating. There were stairs down to the restaurant, and they were gracious enough to give my elderly mother a ride back up to the van.

Aug 2019 - Larry S.

Amazing show

Jul 2019 - Mark S.

Entertaining and Awesome! Great athletic show with funny commentary mixed in. So worth the money and a truly authentic Alaskan experience. The crab feast was soooo good! Absolutely loved both the show and the feast!

Jul 2019 - Danielle A.

Amazing time and my young boys loved the show. The tickets were easy to print from the Alaska Shore Excursions. The directions were clear and finding the ticket agent and show was a breeze! Thank you for a great time!

Jul 2019 - Jeanine P.

Show was good overall, a little hokey with the fake competition/fight. The crab was awesome, but our table was not waited on as much as tables around us, I had to ask 3 times for a drink refill and way too much time was spent on explaining how to crack crab. I also didn't realize there was a time limited to the dinner until we were told 10 minutes to the buses arrival when we were in the middle of our meal. Way too rushed to get us out.

Jul 2019 - Sue N.

Always fun
