Hellgate Jetboat Excursions

966 SW 6th St.
Grants Pass, OR 97526

What a combination on the glorious Rogue River - peaceful at times, thrilling at others, this ride offers it all!
Sometimes you mozey along enjoying the peace and sometimes you move at a pretty good clip through the beautiful Rogue River.
Views along the way include natural ones like mountain goats, high osprey nests, blue herons, and man-made beauties like these riverfront homes.
At the turnaround point, you're taken through the canyons that early settlers had such a hard time in, they thought surely it was as bad as the gates of Hell.
Just to keep things interesting, they take us on "spins" every now and then - great fun! Here's a boat just coming out of one. Which rows do you think got the wettest?
Here's the staff at the OK Corral waiting to greet us with a good hot meal and assorted cold drinks. This fantastic structure with a great view is open only to guests of Hellgate, and should not be missed. Although they have other tour options, I highly recommend the dinner cruise.
The roaring fire was a welcome sight as well. Pitchers of beer, wine, lemonade completed the cozy picture. The menu tonight consisted of ribs and bbq chicken with lots of delicious accompaniments.
If you think you may not be adventurous enough for this trip, meet Thirza Stevens, who was celebrating her 93rd birthday. She told me she had a blast and her caregiver, Sylvia Stephenson, seemed to agree. There are tractors to carry people up the hill to the restaurant from the river, so there's no reason to miss anything this fun group offers.
Malia's 2 cents: This trip is billed as "soft adventure" - suitable for infants to the elderly. Being inbetween these designations myself, I had an absolute blast! I enjoyed the ride, the sights, the meal and the great people I met.

Directions: From Grants Pass - I-5 exit 58. Turn on 6th Street (it's a one way), go 2.5 miles through the city center. Hellgate office is on the right one block past "M" Street.
