The temperature was close to 100 degrees, we were halfway through our road trip and everyone, especially the tween, was kind of grumpy and snappish. Hellgate jetboats was the perfect cure! We took the dinner tour. The trip down the river was slightly more sedate, but we got to see a bald eagle! On the way back, the pace picked... More

Took the Hellgate, Quick and Scenic tour...Was a great time with our guide. Was able to see a bit of Oregon nature. Four other trips are offered but PLAN AHEAD because they fill up! Expect to get wet!! Summer can be HOT so plan for that. We were there in Mid-July! We will be back!!

Pretty good time. We've jetboated before in Portland and at Niagara Falls and this is the same experience. We did the brief and scenic 2 hour one on a hot Saturday in July. It felt like a cattle call when we started, you'll line up with a ton of other people but they don't make you feel like it. We... More

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed this experience! The tour guide was informative and entertaining. The scenery was amazing and the ride was a thrill! It wasn't too rough or bumpy, however, do plan to get wet! I took my camera in a plastic bag. There were plenty of opportunities for pictures along the way. We did not choose the... More

We are retired and have to watch our pennies. Having said that, we live in GP and we've taken this "Excursion" at least a dozen times over the years. Recently, relatives came in who had also visited last year and number one on their agenda was Hellgate Jetboat. Number two was Oregon Caves. We took the 5 hour "rapids" trip,... More

We did the quick and scenic tour, no meal, and it was perfect for us. Sit towards the front if you want to get wet or feel the spins more. I carried a small point&shoot camera, and covered it up when the water came flying - had no issues and got some fun pics. Tip your driver if you have... More

We really wanted to go the distance and do the whitewater trip. Unfortunately its been cancelled because of low water in the river. So call ahead to see what is available because their website wasn't updated with this information.We went on the lunch trip. Five boats were fully loaded for this trip--about 250 passengers! The first part of the trip... More

This is our 4th time experiencing the jet boat ride. Was fun, and exhilarating on a hot day. WE got wet. If you do not like getting wet, I do not suggest this adventure, or wear a poncho. Good for families.
