2019 WRSR - Rogue River Jet Boat Adventure

2019 Western Region Spring Rally (WRSR)
Rogue River Jet Boat Adventure




Not too far from us in Coos Bay is a truly unique adventure. What is it you ask? Here is a synopsis:

Follow in the foot steps of history!

Jet boat the ‘Historic Mail Boat route’ just as Rogue River pioneers have done since 1895, when road access did not exist. We are one of the few remaining Mail Boats in the nation, and still deliver the mail to Agness, 32 miles upriver, on a daily basis.

Take in the natural surroundings as this 80 trip includes the scenic and historic mail route PLUS numerous white water experiences.

Occasional stops along the way will allow for picturesque photo opportunities, wildlife viewing and unscripted narration weaving tales of history, facts and tall tales from growing up on the Rogue River.


Are you interested? Great as we have scheduled a group trip on Monday June 24th for the 80 mile trip. The specifics are:

Boat departs at 12:00 for an ~4.5 hour trip.

The departure dock is located at 29985 Harbor Way, Gold Beach, Oregon 97444, approximately an 80 miles south of Coos Bay.

The group rate cost will be $63 per person.

If you want to go, or think you will, please post here with the name of the participants. You have until Firday of the rally, June 21st to signup/commit. I will collect the monies (cash or check) up to Friday when I have to provide the company with a final count.

Trivia and Miscellaneous Factoids

Boarding begins 10 minutes prior to departure, so please check-in a minimum of 20 minutes prior to scheduled departure.

We should plan on carpooling as much as possible.

SEATING –There is no reserved seating
, so if you would like a specific seat, be early and ready at the top of our loading ramp when we begin the boarding process. The boats have bench seating with padding on both the bottom and back of the seat. For a smoother ride, we recommend the back rows. The front of the boat can be rough at times and we do not recommend for those with bad backs, neck problems, or other medical conditions.

Dress in layers! It can be cool and windy on the coast when we take off and then up to 20-30 degrees warmer inland. It is always better to be over prepared with multiple layers, so don’t be afraid to overdo it! Sunglasses, sunscreen, water, snacks, and hats are all good accessories to bring along. A small backpack or stuff sack is a great way to keep everything organized and together. Leave expensive electronics at home. The vendor is not responsible for damage to any electronic equipment you bring including cell phones, hearing aids, electronic ignition keys, etc.

There is a 1 hour lunch stop along the way (cost not included in trip price). There are two restaurants at this stop, one on each side of the river. Which one we go to just depends. Both have BBQ, sandwiches, burgers, salads and soups. The two places are: Cougar Lane Lodge and Singing Springs Lodge. If you have a preference, let us know and we can try accommodate the majority.

You can bring coolers, for food and/or drink, on board as long as they are the soft sided personal ones that can fit in the rows with passengers.

PET BOARDING – Jerry’s does not have pet facilities, but we do recommend contacting one of the companies below. (Arrangements need to be made prior to your arrival)
Emilie’s Pet & House Sitting: 541-247-2639
Box L Kennels: 541-247-2639
Gold Beach Animal Shelter: 541-247-2514

- Arlene Biegle has graciously volunteered to do some dog walking for those who would like to leave their pets in camp. We can work out specifics once we all arrive.
For additional descriptions of the trip. check out "Jerry's Rogue Jets" website.

I would like my name added to the list for the Jet boat.Also, If it would help anybody out Arlene would be willing to do some dog walking since she will not be going on the trip.

She has had lots of experience with all sizes and breed's. If you have any questions for her, please PM me and I will pass the message on.

Yes indeed it is a round trip departing and returning to Gold Beach, OR.

Note: Post #1 has been updated to reflect Arlene Biegel's generous offer to do some dog walking for those pets staying in their RV during the trip.

Carl-- Add me to the list of Jet Boat riders. Mary will stay ashore at the campground and maybe find something else to do.
