Celebrate southeast Alaska's rich logging history on this rip-roaring good time with quality entertainment for all ages! A short walk from the pier takes you back to a bygone era where the history of Alaska's frontier comes to life and lumberjacks display their dazzling skills. The show is held in a covered, heated and cushioned grandstand. Alaska's frontier lumberjacks battle British Columbia's premier woodsmen in a no-holds-barred competition for the title of "Bull of the Woods." Watch these world-champion athletes compete in springboard chopping, buck sawing, axe throwing, log rolling and the thrilling 50-foot tree climb while your host delights with lumberjack lore. Meet the jacks after the show for pictures, then the fun continues as you compete in a thrilling Axe Throwing Competition. You'll learn the art of throwing a 7-lb razor-sharp axe, and then, after a little practice, you will go head to head in a thrilling competition against other participants. Walk back to the ship at your leisure.

Minimum age is 10 years. Videotaping of the show is not permitted, but still photography is welcome. Guests make their own way to the show on a 5- to 10-minute walk from the pier. This tour is not recommended for guests with wheelchairs or limited mobility.
