We watched the boats and were excited to finally ride one. The Triple spin was the best!!! It is family friendly from the time that you sit in the boat through the family style dinner.

Amazing way to spend a late afternoon/evening. Jetboats will take you down the Rogue River, alternately viewing wildlife on the river and doing high speed 360 spins, all accompanied by dialog from knowledgeable guides who point out highlights and offer local history and lore. I...More

Our guide, Bo, was a hoot. His contagious smile, gregarious spirit and boating skills gave us reason to share many a belly laugh. The vegan dish was delish. Thank you Hellgate Excursions for such a memorable, joyous time!

Although we went on the dinner cruise I would suggest early to mid afternoon as the best time to be in the river.
