For those seeking the thrill of whitewater (minus the rafting!) check out the wilderness adventure that is jetboating.
Built with shallow drafts, huge engines and water-propulsion "hydro-jet" technology, jetboats can get you an up close view of the river, traveling over just inches of water to the edge of the shoreline.
Discover the Rogue's secret places, from Hellgate Canyon to the charming and remote village of Agness. See lodges and campgrounds accessible only by boat.
Exciting and fascinating, jetboat trips let you view the huge range of native plants and wildlife along the historic Rogue River. Bears, bald eagles, cougar and many other species are often observed. Guides provide narration and humorous anecdotes, and point out geologic and historic sites of interest.
Several outfitters in Southern Oregon offer a range of outings and trips of varying lengths, some with dining options and stopovers. It's perfect for all ages, from young to old.
