We live in the area and love riding the jet boats. We often bring out of town visitors to enjoy the beauty of the Rogue River and its wild inhabitants. The jet boat drivers give a great talk about the history and sights along the river. It is the perfect activity to do on a hot summer day. Be prepared,... More

Not sure if it was worth the money at first and then I was proven wrong over and over again. Our Captain was amazing, and obviously well trained. This was part of a cross country trip and I wanted something like this on the list of "to dos". WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. Get in line early and try to get a... More

A Hellgate Jetboat trip is always a memorable experience. Beautiful scenery, wildlife, and wind whipping past your face are all great, but experiencing a tight 360 degree turn is amazing. Take a waterproof, warm jacket; you will get wet. Even on the hottest days, with the wind chill, it's easy to get cold. That being said, it's something you simply... More

Fair warning, this jet boat excursion will have you coming back for more. Whether you choose a brunch, lunch or dinner excursion this is a fantastic trip. Lucky me, I've lived in Grants Pass for more than 35 years and have been almost that many times. When friends and family, all ages, come to visit it is the jet boats... More

The river doesnt seem big enough to me for this boat ride to even be fun, they go slow too. you might as well take your own little fishing boat out if you want to see what the tour shows.

It can get pretty hot here in Grants Pass Oregon. What better way to cool of but to take a fun jetboat excursion down the Rogue River. We took our Granddaughter, her hubby, and our three great grand-kids on a great trip. The little one was only 6 months old and I was concerned that the noise might upset him.... More

Very cool way to see the river, especially on a hot day. The guide was very fun and sensitive to our threshold of excitement and water tolerance, and we let him get us soaked, all while showing us all the critters that inhabit the area. The food was plentiful, but the quality was just OK.

Once they start arriving,and loading passengers,the line moves along nicely, be patient (its worth it). I don't want to be... More
