Hellgate Jetboat Excursions is the way to go to see the Rogue River! Based out of Grants Pass, it offers a number of different adventures. Every year I take my class of fifth graders as part of our end of year celebration. Without fail, the kids have the ride of their lives! Knowledgable, fun and safe skippers provide a thrilling...

The lunch/dinner half way through is delicious and they are generous with food and drink (wine and beer are available as part of your meal if you'd like) and the location for eating is a beautiful lodge overlooking the Rogue.

Cruising the Rogue river was fantastic. The boats could really move and turn on a dime, of course that meant some waves would roll over the sides. Be prepared for some river water. Fun trip, lots to see. The driver gives you an idea of the history of the area. We ended up on the evening trip which stopped at... More

The ride on the Rogue River has smiles all over it. Lots of fun! If you take the dinner cruise you get the fun coming and going with a great family style dinner at the cabin on the River. Smiles all along the way!

The jet boat excursion is a great way to visit the Rogue River area. Be prepared to get wet!! If you take one of the meal excursions you will get plenty of great food.

Fun trip! The Rogue River is beautiful. The boat pilot was informative and funny. Besides enjoying the scenery and wildlife, the boat pilots add a little thrill with spins on the ride back to town. Highly recommend! The dinner at the OK Corral is just fair, but very fun.
