Jerry’s has already helped raise over $100,000 and will continue to help with a pledge of 1% of gross sales from our Historic Mail Route.

"We have began trying to make this an annual trip each summer. The guides are amazing, fun, and have great knowledge of the area and wildlife. Our favorite is the 360 the boat does!"

Jet Boat Tours
Jet boats are designed specifically for safely navigating strong currents and shallow riffles, so you can relax as trained pilots treat you to tall tales and river lore, incredible scenery and sightings of black bear, river otters, eagles and the rare mountain lion.
An adventure with Jerry’s Rogue Jets begins in their museum, where just about anything you need to know about the area’s colorful history is on display in photos, artifacts and dioramas. Then get on board to learn the true meaning of “wild and scenic” from folks who’ve run these trips since 1958.
Mail Boat Hydro-Jets is a descendant of the original mail boats that have carried news and parcels from the outside world to settlers upriver since 1895. Mail Boat Hydro-Jets runs trips in open vessels and in the Rogue Queen, a glass-enclosed excursion boat that’s ideal for rainy days and perfect for tour groups and champagne cruises.
The Mail Boats merged with Jerry’s in 2010 and both tours are now operated by Jerry’s Rogue Jets located at the Port of Gold Beach.
