“The Disneyland of Grants Pass (fun for all ages)”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

Whoa! What a good time, and a great value ($40 for the 2-hour tour). Dress properly for the weather, taking into account you will get wet. You might want to bring something to protect your camera or phone (my wind breaker with pockets was enough). You have a tour guide pointing out the sights, and he/she is accompanied by a spotter, who will make sure you see plenty of wildlife (if you are lucky, you may see a bald eagle or two). You will be informed, you will be awed, and you will probably be drenched, but it is worth the time.

“More fun than I thought”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Living locally, we sometimes overlook local attractions, but this is the best family tourist attraction in southern Oregon. My wife and I took the dinner trip by ourselves and enjoyed it so much that we've taken several visiting family members on it. It's fun to see them unprepared and surprised when they get wet. Great for a hot summer day. The jet boat drivers are all skilled and congenial. Both elements make the rides usually wet and always exciting and enjoyable, even for an old adventurer like me. The dinners are at the "OK Corral" - no relation to the original in Tombstone - are good family style, commensurate with this kind of activity. The trip displays some attractive parts of the Rogue River, including town-side, steep Hellgate Canyon, and usually some wildlife. The price is too high to be a good attraction for taking a bunch of little ones. More like teen to late adulthood ages would fit best in my opinion.

“Have Fun and See the Rogue River”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is such a fun trip for locals and visitors alike. The jet boat guides are knowledgeable and point out the flora and fauna along the way. When it's hot, they make sure everyone gets cooled off with boat spins, quick stops and many splashes. If you want to include brunch or dinner, you will eat on the patio of the OK Corral overlooking the river and surrounding scenery. This is an Oregon experience that accommodates and entertains everyone in your party. Sit back and enjoy the ride!
