This excursion was so much fun! We drove from our hotel in Ashland to Grants Pass, which was a scenic 40 min drive. We took the 3-hour lunch tour, and enjoyed every minute of it. There were 7 of us in our group ranging in age from 7 to 70, and everyone loved it! The scenery is beautiful, and the food they served us at the OK Corral was delicious. Our server also was great. The whole thing was so well organized from start to finish. Be sure to put your valuables (phones, electronic car keys, etc) in ziplock bags because you WILL get SOAKED, which is half the fun. Seriously, go! You'll have a blast.

This is our 2nd trip to Hellgate Excursions. It was a great time with my family and friends. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The boat operator (The Blue Heron) was awesome. He was entertaining and really seemed to enjoy his job. I recommend this to anyone looking for something a little different. Bring dry clothes for the ride home. If you have time for the lunch tour you will have a chance to overlook the area and meet new people, while enjoying a very nice meal.

What an awesome activity! The jetboat excursion combines local history, wildlife, conservation information, and crazy 360s or as our guide Johnny calls them "shake and bake!" We saw herons, bald eagles, osprey and deer. The scenery is breathtaking. We took the lunch trip which included a meal at the OK Corral - green and potato salad, cornbread and biscuits, bbq sauced chicken and berry crumble. Pitchers of iced tea and lemonade were included, and other beverages were available as a separate purchase. Yes - no matter where you are sitting in the boat, you will get wet! The trip into the canyon and to the lunch stop is rather tame, with lots of information shared. But be prepared - the trip back is where it gets wet and wild - and so much fun!

Liked the scenery as we went down river. The BBQ that we ate at the Chuckwagon was tasty (helped that pitchers of beer were waiting for us on the tables as we arrived). Would not encourage people to go if they have a fear of boats (we didn't). Fun activity to do in Grant's Pass!

So while staying in Grants Pass Oregon with some good friends. We decided this was a must do.
We choose the tour and dinner. The only thing I can say to fully describe Hell Gate is "WOW"
The ride is amazing, fun, exciting, thrilling, WET, informative. My wife and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The dinner was fantastic, family style. Plenty of food for all. They even helped prepare food for my wife who has food allergies. Thanks Guy's If you are anywhere in the area this is a must do.
