We went on the dinner excursion and everything about it was great! Our pilot, Bo, was funny, entertaining, and above all, a skillful pilot. The area is incredibly beautiful and Bo was good about pointing out wildlife as we went along. Dinner was delicious and plentiful. Definitely go prepared to get quite wet and have a great, memorable evening.

We chose the Dinner excursion (there are 5 adventures to choose from). It was a hot day (Labor Day weekend). Could hardly wait to get on the boat and have air moving around me. As it turned out, I was pretty much in the middle of the boat front to back and side to side. I got lots of air,... More

What can I say? This was one of the highlights of our trip! Our kids (5, and 2 1/2) were just so thrilled with every hairpin turn, splash, and rev of the engine. They are still talking about it! It was the first 2 hours where they were completely absorbed in every minute, laughing, singing, just so excited...highly recommended! We... More

We booked the two hour scenic ride as a last minute thing and were glad we did. It was great fun with a combination of thrills and informative details on local landmarks. Our driver and guide made the whole experience even better.

Tons of fun. Our cptn. Johnny was funny and the top of his profession. He pointed out wildlife such as bald eagles and he talked about the geology and the layout of the river. He also got us wet with dips of the front of the boat, and 360 turns called shake and bakes. Was really nice on a 90... More

Our family went on the dinner excursion. My husband and I are over 65 and I was concerned about whether the ride would be too rough for us. It wasn't and we had a great time. The food at the restaurant was plentiful and delicious. We got soaking wet but expected that and were prepared. It was fun for our... More

This is an excursion you do not want to miss! It's only available in the summer months until early September. What a wide ride on a most famous river! The Rogue River was the site for several movies like River Wild with Kevin Bacon. The guide, Bo was so entertaining, humorous, and just made the trip! You will get wet... More

We always have the best time on the Hellgate Jetboats! From the great drivers that will spin you around and around to the great food if you choose a brunch/dinner run, to being able to see the scenic Rogue River and all the wildlife. Recommend the trip to anyone, kids, teens, couples and family.
