TOUR DESCRIPTION

Unplug, Reset, & Get Ready to Discover Your Rogue! A Discovery Tour is a complete Oregon experience, packed full of spectacular scenery, meaningful history, wildlife viewing, and thrilling jet boating –with 360’s, of course! A perfect way to make lasting memories with family and friends in a stunning natural setting.

Our jet boat tours also include a 45-minute stop over at our one-of-a-kind Discovery Park “Island” located under the towering cliffs of the Table Rocks. This feature really sets us apart from other jet boat tours as there is so much to see and do. The only way you can get there is by boat! Once you arrive at the Discovery Park, the fun or relaxation is up to you. You’ll have full access to our private, 40-acre “Lake Rogue Jetter” for optional rental activities that can include: paddle boats, stand up boards, inflatable boats, inner tubes, and fishing poles for fishing bass off the docks. Swimming is also an option with life jackets available for all ages. The Discovery Park has games of all sorts throughout the park for those that want to stay active, and shaded tables and hammocks for those looking to relax. Don’t forget to take part in our famous souvenir arrowhead hunt and check out the souvenirs and apparel!

Tip: If your group would prefer more time at the Discovery Park, for an afternoon of fun, we suggest you look at our Discovery Park Experience!

CANCELLATION POLICY

Ticket purchase requires a nonrefundable 50% deposit, at the time of booking, with the remaining balance paid at check-in. Multiple card payments can be used for a booking by selecting the “Split Pay” option at check out. After you complete the booking, you will be able to forward the reservation email to others in your group so they can pay online themselves. Cancellations are accepted up until 24 hours before the trip with deposit carried forward to a future booking. No-shows and day of cancellations are charged in full.

OTHER HELPFUL TOUR INFO

All tours start and end at Touvelle State Park: 8601 Table Rock Rd., Central Point, Oregon 97502. Any automobile entering the State Park is required to get a $5 self-pay parking pass by cash or check. This is paid to the State Park at the self-pay ticket booth, at the entrance to Touvelle, not at Rogue Jet Boat Adventures. The park has plenty of easy motorhome and RV parking next to our boat loading area. As with any public place, please secure valuables. There are convenient restrooms available at check-in and again at the Discovery Park 1 hour-and-15 mins thru your tour.

Arrive 20 minutes early for check in. If you arrive late, you forfeit your ticket. Reserving the front row is not available, but we do take special requests at check-in. The captain has the final say of where your group sits, for even weight distribution and keeping all safe. The back rows are reserved for families with kids, the elderly, or those who are pregnant. Loading the boat requires either making wide steps over the rows of seats or sitting down on a row and swinging legs over rows.

Infants are not recommended because the tour includes spins, you are in full sun, and light to heavy water is to be expected on your boat at any time, (Hearing crying babies during an adventure is not most people’s idea of a good time.) If you decide to bring your infant, please wear them in a baby carrier. All ages require a ticket, please. Ages 12 years and younger are required to wear a lifejacket by law, and by law we must supply a certain kind. Please do not bring your own. Thanks!

Pets are NOT allowed on the boat. There are a few shaded parking sites at the State Park, but it is not recommended you leave your pet in the car as outdoor temps can reach 110+ here in Southern Oregon. We work with the amazing Krazy Kritters Pet Sitting company just a few minutes down the road. You can either arrange to drop your pet off for doggy daycare, or have the sitter come play with your dog at the State Park while you are on your adventure. https://www.krazykritterdogwalking.com/ 541- 678-0570. Prices are between $25 and $50 depending on service, for two dogs.

You are welcome to bring your own picnic items on the boat in a small cooler (20 qt or less) or keep it simple and purchase from us. Hot & cold food items are available as an add on when booking your ticket or ordered on the fly once arriving for your Discovery Park layover. Snack foods including chips, local jerky, candy, and ice creams are available for purchase. Don’t worry, we also have you covered with soda, juice, coffee, wine, beer, seltzers, & ciders. Bring I.D. for alcohol purchases, please.

Lake activity rentals are not included with ticket purchase and can be reserved as an add-on during ticket purchase or once you arrive at the Discovery Park. Swimming is popular and done at your own risk with no lifeguard on duty. Lake water is around 70-80 degrees, while river swimming is a refreshing 62! Of course, life jackets are available for all water activities.

Beginner fishing pole rentals with jigs or bait are available as an add-on during booking or once arriving at layover. You are welcome to bring your own gear, as well. Gear MUST be folded down and not rigged (preferably in a case) to load onto the jet boat for the tour. Fishing is catch and release on our private lake; a fishing license is not required.

Depending on bookings of the day, our tour sizes range from 6-25 passengers per boat. In the unlikely event we do not meet our minimum for running a tour (6 people), we may have to reschedule. We do our very best at giving you 24 hours’ notice when a change may be needed. Whole boat bookings are welcome and receive a 10% discount. Total seats for a Discovery Tour, per trip, are 53 by combining our 10-, 18-, and 25-seater boats. (We only use the 10- seater boat when the 18- and 25-seater boats are full.) Multiple boat bookings are great fun for groups because you interact with each other on the water throughout the whole tour. Water wars anyone?

Tip: If you have a group bigger than 53, you may want to consider booking a Discovery Park Experience or Private Event instead.

5/5

This was a fantastic adventure, filled with thrills as the very skilled pilot wove his way over the rapids, through very narrow channels, and super fun spins. If you sit in the front you may even get a few extra splashes to cool you off!
