Helen Keller once said, “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all.” In a world where our hectic lifestyles keep us glued to our mobile devices 24-7, a sense of adventure is becoming harder and harder to find. Hellgate Jetboat Excursions offers just that. Located just minutes away from I-5 in Grants Pass, Oregon,the professionals at Hellgate Jetboat Excursions offer a variety of exhilarating experiences for all age groups. Just imagine…seeing Hellgate Canyon up close and personal.
The Rogue River is one of the most renowned rivers in the World. In 1968, The U.S. Congress included the Rogue River as one of the original eight charter rivers to receive protection under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. The Rogue River is known for its lush green scenery, rugged canyons, warm water, and abundant wildlife and up to class 5 rapids… you can experience this level of excitement safely with the professionals at Hellgate Jetboat Excursions.
Seasoned travelers will agree; this is “a-once-in-a-lifetime” experience. “We watched an osprey dive from the sky into the water just feet from our boat and emerge with a fish. I will remember that for the rest of my life,” commented one rider.
An adventurous trip wouldn’t be complete without the chance to experience the “Jetboat Spin”…a maneuver that rotates the boat 360 degrees on its axis while throwing a wall of water into the air. Riders will also experience the thrill getting up close and personal with the wildlife.
Exciting adventures with Hellgate Jetboat Excursions come in all shapes and sizes. Depending upon your desired timeframe, you may choose from Scenic or Whitewater tours. Or if you’re up for a bite to eat, Hellgate also offers Lunch, Brunch and Dinner tours. Trips that include food will stop at the OK Corral, an old homestead that overlooks the river. If you choose the Dinner tour this year, you’ll get the exclusive opportunity to sample some of Hellgate Cellar’s new flight of wines including; Merlot, Chardonnay, as well as Viognier…just a few of Hellgate’s incredible selection of red or white wines. If you end up loving the wine, you will have the opportunity to join their private and exclusive wine club.
