What are your age requirements?
We cater to all ages. Children 12 and under are required by law to wear a Coast Guard certified life jacket during the tour. If you have a little baby you are welcome to call for more info and suggestions for making your trip enjoyable.
Physical requirements of taking a Discovery Tour?
Our boat and shuttle bus require 3 steps and loading and unloading the boat requires walking on surfaces ranging from pavement to natural environment terrain. Slow moving, not so agile people enjoy our Discovery Tours on a daily basis. Every passenger must also be able to hold on to the grab bars during the trip and step over a bench seat.
What’s your cancellation policy?
At time of booking we charge 50% of your total tour ticket price as a NON- REFUNDABLE deposit. The remaining balance can be paid on day of arrival by cash or separate cards. We require any changes or cancellations to your Discovery Tour be made at least 24 hrs before your scheduled trip. This is due to our very limited seating and preparation needed to operate. Other than that, there are NO EXCEPTIONS and full price is charged. No exceptions includes a sudden illness, showing up in the wrong location, being late, or someone in your party being a no-show. If you have to cancel and give us more than 24 hrs notice the deposit can be transferred to another time and day or can be used as a store credit for a future date.
We operate our tours from mid-April to mid-September, rain, shine, or smoke! We will only cancel or reschedule your tour (even last minute) if we decide your safety could be compromised for ANY reason, which may include severe thunderstorms or sudden mechanical failure. If we decide to cancel any tour for any reason and we can not get you rescheduled, we will gladly refund your full ticket price.
Is a lunch or dinner offered?
Available for purchase - We have snacks and drinks available during the layover at the Discovery Park. You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks to eat at our picnic tables.
Are there bathrooms nearby?
Yes there are! They are available to use at check in and half way through the tour at our private river park.
Is there a place to lock up valuables?
We recommend you take your valuables with you or lock them in your car. There is no place on the boat to lock valuables up.
How long do tours last?
Depending on which adventure chosen, time can vary from 2 1/2 hours to a full day fishing trip.
What do I wear?
Simply dress for the type of weather you’ll be in and what you feel comfortable wearing.
What do I bring?
Hats, sunblock, sunglasses, water, snacks, and limited alcohol are welcome. We have water and light snacks for purchase during your whole tour with us.
Although we do allow limited alcohol use (as in, a couple drinks in a small cooler) for 21 yrs and older, we do expect respectful use at all times. This is a family friendly attraction. No smoking or vaping is permitted during tour or at check in.
What part of the river do I ride?
We run the section of the Upper Rogue between Rattlesnake Rapids (west of Eagle Point) and the former Gold Rey dam site (north of Gold Hill). Just under 30 miles roundtrip. We are located around 5 minutes from Medford and about 40 river miles upriver from Grants Pass.
Will I get wet?
This is a river tour and you will be surrounded by water the entire tour. Depending on how hot it is, the wind levels, and your specific group’s wishes, you should expect light sprays of water and even heavier sprays coming aboard. If you wish to stay drier please inform your captain while boarding but there is no guarantee. Generally, any water spray you receive will be blown dry by the time you unload. Any valuables should be protected from water.
How are you different than the Jet Boat Excursion Companies offering tours on the Middle Rogue and Lower Rogue River?
We focus on sharing and preserving our local Table Rock History. Our special Table Rock area possesses gorgeous natural scenery untouched by commercialism with very few river users. We offer arguably, Oregon’s top Historical and Cultural attraction and combine that with a true jet boating experience that is unmatched. Unlike the other tour companies, we can not use barge like boats to navigate this waterway, which in a sense, puts you in the driver seat. We are just 5 minutes from the Medford Airport, Shakespeare Theater of Ashland, Historic Jacksonville, and World Class Wineries. Crater Lake National Park and the Oregon Coast are also not far away.
I will be traveling with my pet. Can I bring him on the boat?
If you are booking the whole boat then you are able to bring your pet, but it must be arranged. We have many pets ourselves and understand they are treasured family members. If you would like to inquire of possible alternatives of keeping your pet safe while on the river feel free to ask us! Our recommended pet-sitter is named Anna and she can be called at 541-708-1598. She lives only 15 minutes away from us.
Do you have RV Parking?
Yes! We are also located minutes from either exit 33 or 35 off the I-5 Freeway.
We will see you on the Rogue!!
