Excellent trip. I will go again and I highly recommend it. We did the Sunday Brunch. Craig our pilot was very engaging, funny and an excellent guide. Next time I go it'll be the dinner cruise. Oh and even though it rained on us we had a fantastic time!

“Fabulous & great fun”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Visited Grants Pass with friends whose son has emigrated to this wonderful place. They suggested this excursion. The trip included dinner at the Ok Corral. The ribs are delicious, the sauce on the chicken very very tasty, all in all a fab time. The Jet boats fantastic, the pilot, Randy great fun, we had spins & went fast [ don't sit on the right side of the boat unless you don't mind getting wet, my husband got very wet].You got fab views going down the Rogue river. We even had a wedding proposal, which was excepted, thankfully, otherwise it would have been a bumpy ride!!
You must go when you visit Grants Pass.

“Fun for all ages”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Had another great experience on the Jet Boat's Dinner Excursion with a multi-generation family group. Ride itself is worth the price as guides keep things fun and exciting with just the right combination of speed, spins, wildlife, jokes and history. Scenery is great and on a hot summer day they keep you just wet enough to feel refreshed. Our dinner was great as well. The venue looking down on the river is very nice and they give you lots of food and keep things moving. Would highly recommend. Our group included grandkids as young as 8 to grandparents in 60's and was fun for all.

“So fun!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Our family had a blast on the jetboats. We did the 3 hour lunch excursion, which stopped for lunch at the O.K. Corral. The food and service at the O.K. Corral were really good and the place itself was beautiful. As for the jetboat, Brent was our pilot and he was awesome. We went super fast, did spins, saw lots of beautiful scenery and nature. You will get wet on this boat so be prepared!

“Bucket List Fun”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We live nearby, and find an excuse to take friends on a 'Dinner Cruise' every summer. The ride alone is worth it. Expect to get quite wet, especially on the trip back. More so in front, but a good driver (Rick) can see to it that everyone manages to get a good dowsing. A second boat playing leapfrog will put the finishing touches on it. Take pics, but protect your camera. There's lots of wildlife, including deer on shore, osprey overhead. If you've got anyone gimpy, stepping into and out of the boat is the only hard part. The dinner is a great value, lots of food and fun. All you can eat, including beer and a good wine. If you're passing thru southern Oregon, add it to your list. ps: our trip was marred by several forest fires that had smoke in the area. Cancellations were running 50%. Those people missed out a a great adventure!
