They put on a really good show, and they certainly take it seriously, we had a good laugh cheering them on, the show lasted an hour and was value for money, also a very good commentary by the young lady

A lot of knowledge was given about the hard work involved but added a lot of entertainment, too. Great show to see!

The show was great! All 4 lumberjacks did an amazing job in a shore that was real, exciting, funny, and interesting. A signed calendar made for a fun souvenir as well.

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