Be prepared to get wet, which was perfect on the 100 degree day we went! Pretty scenery and good stories from our driver (Randy) on the way down the river, with a few spins and splashes thrown in. Delicious all-you-can eat dinner (BBQ ribs & chicken, great potatoes, salad, slaw, cornbread, rolls, berry cobbler, and lots of beverage choices) at... More

While the jetboat ride was exciting there are definitely things to be aware of if you choose to take this river trip. The Rogue River Hellgate Jetboat Excusions does have "Jetboat Spins!" on its brochure but from my experience, one must be able to tolerate the driver "spinning" the boat many, many (my trip was at least 11) times. Three... More

Exciting fun riding on the jet-boat. We had a large boat of 60 people. Brent was our captain. He was funny and very knowledgeable about the area and the nature around the river. Beautiful scenery. Fun boat ride. The outside 2 people in the rows get the most wet, specially in the middle rows. The boats have amazing power and... More

First we took the regular ride down to Hell Gate canyon and had dinner at the OK Corral. It was so much fun we went back a week later and took the longer Whitewater excursion. The fun comes in the spins and the buckets of water raining down on people all over the boat. If you sit in the front,... More

Lots of fun. Front of the boat gets very wet. Also you get wet if sitting on the ends. Our tour guide captain was Johnny. Very knowledgeable of the area and made sure you had fun going up and down the Rogue River. We did the dinner trip all the wine, beer, Lemonade, salad bar b q chicken, and ribs... More

Took 7 of us in all from 4yrs and up for the Dinner Tour and had a blast! Educational as well as good clean wet fun. Our Captain Bo was hilarious and really has a great respect for nature and the environment in which we went through. A little pricy when you're taking 7 all together however we took advantage...

On our way out, he asked if we wanted to get wet before brunch, answer was yes..... He did indeed get us wet, it was a bit chilly in the... More

We took the 2 hour tour which lasted almost 3 hours so we felt we received our monies worth. The tour passes homes & parks before entering the more wild sections. We saw muskrats, Eagles, osprey, herons,deer among more common variety of birds and wildlife. The pilot was informative and open to suggestions re: 360 degree turns to spray other... More

We took the Jetboat excursion downriver from Grant's Pass. It was pretty thrilling and a lot of fun. The guide talked about the history of the mail boats that use to come up-river from the ocean. I would recommend it to anybody.
