Under snowcapped mountains next to an active salmon stream in the historic waterfront, harbor is where the competition takes place with World Class Lumberjack athletes. Hear the story of 2 rival logging camps battling it out for the title of “Bull of the Woods”. Sixty minutes, 12 events of nonstop Lumberjack Axe-tion!

Room and Board

Employee housing is LIMITED and therefore offered to full time employees on a first come first serve basis.  The housing is located a mile away from the work site.  Having your own transportation is nice but not required, there is a city bus that runs daily.  Each employee will have a shared bedroom and shares the kitchen, living room, and bathroom.

Other housing opportunities are available around town but are expensive.  The management team can assist in finding other housing.

Employee Perks

  • Competitive wages with end of season bonus based on management review.
  • Other tour operators here offer our employees complimentary tours or at a small fee based of availability - Flight seeing, kayaking, zip lining etc..
  • Coordinated team events including BBQs and group tours.
  • Experience Ketchikan and all it offers!
  • Lifetime friendships and unforgettable memories!

Getting Here and Getting Around

Alaska Airlines serves Ketchikan which is a short 1 hour 45 minutes flight from Seattle. Alaska Marine Highway ferries operate out of Bellingham, Washington and Prince Rupert, B.C.

While here, we will have bikes available and the city bus system is very good. We will provide some compensation for travel expenses that will be based on each individual.

For Fun

Starting in July, you can try to catch one of these beauties right behind our show site! Camping, beaches, hiking and loads of other fishing sites are just minutes from the downtown area.  Many fun community wide events happen throughout the year, including Summer Solstice, Fourth of July, Blueberry Festival, and the Fish Pirates Daughter Play to name a few!
