Our neighbors said Hellgate was a must, and they were right. We had a wonderful dinner for lunch in a beautiful set of Pavilions above the river, with deer wandering the lawns. Family style BBQ chicken and fixings done to perfection. Our captain shared nature, history and laughter. There are good hotels and a great restaurant, The Tap Rock, just... More

We had a great time taking the 4 hour dinner jet boat trip. We did a jet boat trip in Portland last year and had a good time. But the Rogue river so so much more scenic and the ride was more entertaining. I was wondering if it would be a little too wild for my 5 year old daughter,... More

Our second time on the Hellgate jet boats. Last time 10+ years ago. Just as fun and thrilling (and wet!) as last time. Went for the dinner cruise with a stop off at the "OK Corral" and we're treated to BBQ ribs n chicken on the banks of the Rogue River before setting back on a wetter and wilder return... More

The jet boat ride was fun, the captain was very entertaining. We saw one bald eagle, several ospreys, and a beaver dam. My husband, who is very difficult to get a smile out of, was smiling the whole time and even a few hours after the ride and dinner was over. The dinner was in a beautiful log lodge, the... More

Well worth the time/cost for the adventure! We took a dinner cruise and thoroughly enjoyed the meal as well.

Excellent trip, we are planning next year already. Our driver was the best. There isn't anything we didn't like about it except maybe it wasn't long enough.

The jetboat trip was super fun, we had 3 10 year olds with us and they had a blast. Food was so/so but the boating and guide was top notch!

Fast jet boats draw very little water and move you well down river quickly. They are comfortable, smooth and seem to handle minor turbulence quite well. Their propulsion system allows extreme maneuverability so the pilots do have fun and you will get wet. Bring a ziplock bag for phone, wallet and camera. I took the 4pm excursion which included dinner... More

We had family visiting from NYC and decided it was a good time to finally try a Hellgate Excursion. We chose the Quick and Scenic because of time constraints. Even though we ate elsewhere, the boat ride was fantastic and the perfect way to send our company off in great Oregon style. Highly recommended!

Great time, but YOU will get wet. Don't go if that's a problem and you are afraid you hair will get messed up. The ride was great and then we got to the lodge for brunch. Very well run, great food and lots of it. You get back on the boats and then the fun begins.The trip home is the... More
