About Rogue River Jet Boats

Blossom Bar is not only the most technical rapid on this stretch of river, but it is where you will begin to see a new creature of the Rogue: Jet Boats. The reason you begin to see them here is due to Blossom Bar being too technical for them to navigate. Originally used to transport mail and goods to homesteads, jet boats now offer day tours of the lower half of the Rogue, beginning at the Gold Coast and ending at the bottom of Blossom Bar. You often hear them before you see them. As general etiquette, do your best to move to one side of the river and let them pass. If you are in the middle of the rapid, you have the right of way. If they are in the middle of a rapid, and you have not yet entered, they have the right of way.
