Fun way to spend a hot summer day!
Spending some time on the Rogue River is always nice. But when temperatures soar it is even better. Rogue Jet Boat Adventures takes you on a section of the upper Rogue that very few other boats go to – the area under the Table Rocks where you will see unforgettable scenery and wildlife. You also get the jet boat thrills, along the Rogue River. And best of all – it is only 7 minutes from Jacksonville!
The Table Rock area holds some of the richest Rogue Valley history along with unparalleled beauty. Owners Taylor and Emily Grimes strive to ensure each and every customer leaves feeling a new sense of discovery and adventure! And the 18 passenger boats allow for more personal interaction with the driver
You meet the shuttle at their new location in Central Point’s “Artisan Corridor”. Then it is a short
and pleasant drive to the river in TouVelle State Park. Tours run 7 days a week from mid-May through September.
The customer check- in location is at 131 N. Front St. Central Point, next door to Artisan Corridor. This convenient area has ample free parking and is centrally located.
The Artisan Corridor is a hidden gem in the Rogue Valley where you can “Taste the Upper Rogue”. Sample Rogue Creamery’s World Famous cheeses and treats, Lillie Belle Farm’s gourmet chocolates, and Ledger David’s superb local wines. Children are allowed in all businesses and there are many shaded picnic tables situated through out the corridor for outside family picnicking. All purchases are allowed on the boat, including wine and they even have coolers available.
