I have taken the JAet Boat trips many times. My favorite is the dinner trip, although any of the trips are exciting. The crew/staff are friendly, great sense of humor, and very knowledgeable about the geography and history of the river. Well worth taking the time to enjoy this trip.

Beautiful trip up the river with a very good breakfast at the lodge. It was a little cool so they took care not to get us too wet. The breakfast was very tasty with more than enough to choose from. Served family style. Great Mimosa's too!

We had booked a trip for 4 about three weeks before our arrival data and planned our entire roadtrip around this event. The day before we were to arrive, got an email saying trip was cancelled. They claim they called my cell earlier, but they had correct cell and my incoming call log showed no calls from them. While the... More

We chose Hellgate Jetboat Excursions over a traditional dinner event to celebrate friends' 50th Birthdays. The skippers are knowledgeable, and give history of the Rogue River throughout the entire ride. The skipper makes the ride exciting and enjoyable for everyone, there were even a few small kids on the boat that had fun since the skipper would warn of any... More

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...

I can't wait for the Hellgate tours to open come May. It is a must do attraction for visitors. 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. This... More

While I have been on the jet boats many times, it's wonderful everytime. The restaurant always has great food and service, and the trip is beautiful. Make sure to use the restroom before you get back on the boat if you've had a lil beer or wine.. trustvme, you'll want to. Bring a light parka if you want to try... More

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
